Meet The Team:
I have been teaching for twelve years in the EYFS, having previously worked as a Nursery Nurse for 15 years in a number of schools in Bradford. I decided that teaching was my future and studied for my Bachelor of Education Hons) at Leeds University. I have worked in three Bradford Schools since qualifying as a teacher and moved to join Wibsey Primary School in September 2022. Mrs Boocock and I, joined at the same time and have both taken on a middle leadership role, supporting Mrs Ellis-Barker, our Phase Leader and Assistant Head in developing the EYFS at Wibsey. I currently teach in Nursery, which I love! It is a real joy to welcome our children and support them in the first step of their education. We both strive to improve our practise through Continual Professional Development, sharing our knowledge with our team, in order to improve the experience of all the children we teach. Our ambition for our children is that they leave the EYFS with all the skills and knowledge they need to continue their journey at Wibsey Primary School. We want our children to feel safe, happy and confident and to achieve to their full potential.
Having spent many years working with children across the Bradford District I have learned that when we work effectively as a team we succeed in our mission to provide the very best for young children. Every member of the Early Years team brings a different element of skill, experience and knowledge. Collaboratively, our role is to facilitate learning for the children in our care, to understand what young children need in order to flourish and provide quality learning opportunities.
When we do so, children begin to adopt a love of learning personal to them. They develop independence and resilience; learning to take ownership of themselves, their choices and decisions.
Children develop long lasting, meaningful friendships that stay with them throughout their time in primary school and this makes for a happy, confident, all-encompassing learner.
Welcome to Wibsey Primary School…we are honoured to be a part of your child’s journey.
