adam melling.jpgAdam Melling - General Primary

Throughout my career I have work in many diverse environments. Within all of these positions I have worked in a positive, committed and passionate manner. During my time as a lettings agent and a recruitment consultant I discovered the importance of relationship building. Positive trustworthy relationships I believe are the key to success, if you do not share the same ethos as those around you then it can be very difficult to achieve your objective. This can be transferred to the classroom. I believe whole-heartedly in inclusion for all pupils. Inclusion within lessons is paramount for children to learn; in order for learning to take place all pupils must experience a level playing field. I have high expectations for myself and for all children that I teach; I look to challenge and stretch them in order for them to achieve their potential. I consistently behave in a professional manner and model clearly to the children exactly how I expect them to behave.  More information...

amy judkins.jpgAmy Judkins - General Primary

Hello, my name is Amy. I am calm and approachable NQT with a strong interest in languages.  I have spent my training year at Rectory C.E. Primary School and have built strong relationships with members of staff and children. I have had experience of teaching core and foundation subjects in year 4 and I spent a month teaching and observing in year 1. I am particularly proud of how I have taken on board any feedback from my mentor and other staff members to develop and continue improving my teaching.

I have a strong interest in languages. At university I studied Spanish with TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). During my A Levels, I studied French. My love of languages is something that I would love to pass on to children. I look forward to being part of a team and making a difference to children’s lives.

I am a considerate and passionate teacher. I always makes an effort to ensure that my pupils are enjoying their learning. I strive to make my classroom environment stimulating and provide engaging activities. I believe that one of the most important factors in learning is that children feel happy and safe within their classroom so they can engage fully with their learning. I am currently completing my qualified teacher status. I have experience teaching in a Year Four classroom at St Michaels CE Primary School, where I quickly became a part of the school team.   More information...

Bethany Carter.jpgBethany Carter - Salaried

With 6 years of experience as a primary school practitioner, I have a broad range of skills and values including team work, passion, classroom management, time management and compassion. I have recently transitioned seamlessly into a teaching position across a Year 2 cohort

I am passionate about nurturing children’s natural curiosity and love for learning, so that each child can reach their full potential. I have extensive experience in teaching phonics effectively, and use this to support independent writing within year 2. I have also recently travelled to France to take part in a languages teaching course that developed my knowledge of how best to support the teaching and learning of MFL in schools.

Throughout remote learning, I have gone above and beyond to support the mental health and wellbeing of both my students and families. This demonstrated my core beliefs that schools are at the heart of the wider community. More information...

christine ohagan.jpgChristine O'Hagan - General Primary

I am a mature student with placements in both year 1 and year 3. Throughout my placements, I have often been praised for my behaviour management. It has been noted that I always set high expectations of my class and explain what is expected from them at the start of my lessons.

My mentors have described me as enthusiastic, dedicated and able to develop positive professional relationships with other members of staff. During my placement I have fitted naturally into the school environment and respond well to feedback from my mentors.

During both placements I attended phonics training and delivered phonics lessons to my year 1 class. I have been able to use my placement year to understand how to use assessment to ensure children make progress.   More information...

cody rochelle morris.jpgCody-Rochelle Morris - General Primary

I am an enthusiastic NQT who values great professional relationships. I am an advocate for equality, mental health, and LGBTQ rights. I understand the value of creating pleasure for reading from a young age and recognise the lifelong positive outcomes reading can create. I am a nurturing and kind teacher who understands the importance of celebrating individuality and creating a safe place where every child can achieve greatness.

I have been teaching in Year One at St Michael’s Catholic Primary where I have become part of the school family where I quickly settled into the Catholic ethos. I have shown a natural love of teaching and this passion has been evident in my behaviour management and differentiation. During the current climate I have adapted to home learning, whilst taking full class responsibilities for the key worker and vulnerable children. I am hopeful to gain experiences in further year groups once it is advisable to do so.

faye larsen.jpgFaye Larsen - General Primary

From volunteering at an early age, I recognised my embedded determination to work towards giving children an equal start in life. Teaching gives me the ability to achieve this by sharing my enthusiasm towards learning. I aim to create a welcoming, safe and stimulating environment in which everyone is mutually respected.

Developing subject knowledge, understanding the importance of differentiation, building and maintaining effective behaviour management strategies have all been attained during this year. In addition to this, having the role of a teacher has enabled me to build on my many skills including resilience, patience and organisation. Seeing children progress as a result of my teaching is something I pride myself on.

Thus, from gaining extensive knowledge as a trainee teacher I believe I would be a great addition to a school community due to my contemporary teaching style, ability to adapt and create a nurturing environment for pupils to excel. More information...

lucy barker.jpgLucy Barker - General Primary

I am a very considerate, approachable and patient person; qualities that make me very well-suited to working with children. I am dedicated and enthusiastic and have received excellent feedback from my mentor during PGCE placements in Years 6 and 1 at St Aidan’s Primary School, Billinge. The majority of this experience has been spent in Year 6 which I have found to be both immensely rewarding and educational working with children during this period of their schooling. I have a positive personality that has successfully engaged the pupils during lessons that I have prepared and delivered. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience, helping children grow and mature, and inspiring them whilst playing an important role in shaping their future.
