PPA Staff 

Mrs L Frodsham

Higher Level Teaching Assistant (Infants)

My Interests:  I love spending time with my family and friends; my husband and my two boys.  We have two Cavapoo dogs; Teddy and Bella. We love taking them on long walks especially in Wales. During the weekends I spend the mornings watching the boys play football followed by long walks, kayaking or paddleboarding in the afternoons. 

I love going on sunny holidays especially to Cornwall. We love to surf and bodyboard in the Cornish waves followed by a delish cornish pasty on the beach. We also enjoy camping with friends, especially sitting by a campfire toasting our marshmallows in the evenings!

My interesting fact: When I was younger, I spent the day waiting outside Manchester United's training ground in the hope of meeting some of the players. After waiting for 6 hours, I finally met David Beckham and Eric Cantona! I even had my photograph taken with them and they kindly signed my Shirt, which I've still got today!

Mrs C Clarke

Higher Level Teaching Assistant (Infants

My interests: I love visiting new places with my family and spending time together. I am a member of the zoo and I love the outdoors and exploring. I enjoy travelling and I am always  looking for new adventures.

Interesting fact:

I have been on a camel ride in the Sahara, swam with dolphins and have been kissed by a reindeer.

Mrs T Ibbotson

Teacher (Juniors)

Interests: I relish spending quality time with my family; my husband, daughter and son where we enjoy woodland and mountain walking with our dog Benji as well as cycling and swimming. I love listening to a range of musical genres and am also an avid theatre goer with a passion for musicals! Holidays are a big thing for us and we love everything from exotic beaches to caravanning in our tourer!  As long as it's a different destination, it's a new adventure!! 

Being from Manchester originally, I spend lots of time at the weekend there too, visiting family and friends and watching my favourite football team play football.... Manchester United of course!!

I have been a teacher now at Meadow for almost fifteen years.  In my present role as PPA teacher, I get to teach children across the wide range of year groups on a regular basis which I absolutely adore. I am also professional mentor to our Newly Qualified Teachers and student teachers within school and find supporting them and watching them develop in their role extremely rewarding. 

Fun fact: In the summer of 2018, whilst on holiday in Hawaii, I got to see one of the world's most active volcanoes erupting! This was the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island.  It was a truly magnificent experience and one that I will never forget!
