Miss F Close

Teacher (Ladybirds)

My interests: I love spending time with my friends, family and my dog Archie. I enjoy taking Archie for long walks along the beach, lots of people say that he looks like a wolf or a polar bear when we are out walking! I have been teaching for over 10 years now, I love being a teacher as I love helping children to learn and most importantly we all have fun in school every day and I always go home smiling. 

A fun fact about me: When I was in primary school I played the part of Cinderella in a school play - I think that my princess days are over now (unless you catch me with a wand in my hand in Foundation!)

Miss R Holman

For the last 2 years I have lived and worked as a teacher in Abu Dhabi which was an amazing experience and now I am living back on our family farm in Cheshire.

A fun fact about me: I have completed the 'Three Peaks Challenge' in 24 hours twice for charity!

Miss L Russell

My interests: I am really excited to be joining the EYFS team after having a lovely time teaching India class last year.

I love spending my time baking and watching the F1 with my sister. We hope to go to a Grand Prix one day and I even made her an F1 birthday cake! I also enjoy reading and always have a book on the go! I’m a big kid at heart and love getting involved in all the activities with the children, especially if it involves dancing. 

A fun fact about me: I love karaoke and my go-to song is Sweet Caroline as everyone joins in so they can’t hear how bad I am!

 I have 3 beautiful, crazy sons, who, of course, I love spending time with. We like watching films together, especially the Marvel and Star Wars Universes. We like to watch documentaries on TV, in particular Science and Space ones.

Finally I have been a TA in Foundation stage for 7 years and have so much fun, I think I have the best job in the world!

Mrs Paula Hendry

Teaching Assistant 

My Interests: I love spending time with my family! I have a son and a daughter and a very lazy cat named Liquorice! 

My favourite hobby is eating, I enjoy cooking, trying out new recipes and secretly helping myself to my daughter's chocolate stash! 

To jazz up doing household chores, I like to have a good boogie and a sing-a-long to the current chart music and old throwback classics. 

Chill time is curling up on the sofa with a cuppa reading a good book.

A fun fact about me: When I was a child I attended dance classes, tap and ballet. Dancing in pantomimes, competitions and exams. Today I keep fit by doing Zumba to burn off all those chocolate calories!

Last year I did a zumbathon for charity so I hope to do more of these in the future.

My interest: I love to spend time with my family doing lots of fun stuff!

We love being active and spend our weekends and holidays walking, cycling, kayaking, skiing and swimming. We love to travel and have a touring caravan, in which we have lots of adventures. I like to read and can often be found in the local library, filling up my bag with books. I also love to bake all sorts of yummy treats for my family and friends. 

A fun fact about me: I have an old car, affectionately named the 'Turbo Bus', in which we have driven to 15 different countries across Europe. Our longest Turbo Bus journey was 1260 miles, from Croatia back to the UK!

Miss T Wright

Teaching Assistant (on maternity leave)

My interests involve meeting up with my family and friends. I love listening to music, eating, going on new adventures and being out in the sun! 

I currently have a little boy  who also attends Meadow. He is the cheekiest boy I know, he taught me who I wanted to be in life and has made me the person I am today. We are always going on adventures, making different crafts and you might find us train spotting on your travels. 

I've worked in child care for 12 years my favourite part of my job is watching the children's personalities grow and seeing them achieve their personal goals.
