PE uniform Please note that the school has uniform on sale. Please write your child’s name on all their clothing – it helps enormously if they get lost or mixed up with another child’s clothes! Please note we are not responsible for any lost items of clothing; we teach children to take full responsibility for their possessions. If for any reason clothing is lost, we endeavour to help locate it but we do not replace uniform of any kind (please see our lost property policy).

Jackie Balcombe
Teaching Assistant Year 3

I have been working at Grinling Gibbons Primary School for 17 years, and this is the school that my children attended, as well as the school where I came as a child. This is why I love working here – it’s more like home to me!

Over the years, I have had many roles including lunch-time support, cleaner and teaching assistant, but whatever it is I’m doing, I really enjoy working with the children.

Additional Responsibility

 

I have worked at Grinling Gibbons since September 2015 and am excited every day to come to school and learn with the children. I enjoy working here because the children are so enthusiastic and interested in their learning. As well as teaching in Year 3, I run a weekly maths booster class, after school with our Year 6 children.

As P.E. lead, I think keeping fit and staying healthy are really important. That’s why, as well as organising events such as Sports Day and ‘The Daily Mile’, you can always find me taking part in the weekly Keep Fit sessions with the other teachers!
