Teaching Assistant Year 5

I have been working at Grinling Gibbons Primary School for nearly nine years and have enjoyed all my years working here. I take great pride in reinforcing the schools ethos, aiming to inspire all individuals. Working in this school has given me the opportunity to work with all year groups, which has boosted my confidence.

My role is to help the children with their learning and motivate them to achieve their targets, and it gives me great satisfaction to know that I am part of the children’s learning journey, and a valued member of staff.

Year 5 Teacher

I recently joined the Grinling Gibbons family in September 2017 and I am excited for the years ahead. Whilst at University, I had visited Grinling Gibbons on a two week placement and knew immediately that this was the school for me. The enthusiasm of the Head teacher, teachers, staff, as well as the passion that the children have for their learning has been infectious, heightening my drive to work in this remarkable and nurturing environment.

I am proud to work in such a culturally diverse community where parents are supportive and value their children’s education. I look forward to working in partnership with you in developing the future generation and in creating opportunities to further stretch them as they develop into lifelong learners.
