Jane Richmond

Early Years Teaching Assistant

Every day is a surprise. The spontaneity of children can be exciting, challenging, noisy, messy, fun and many other things, but never dull and always very rewarding. I love it when the children go that bit further and surprise themselves.

I started here when my daughter was in year 1, she’s twenty six now so I’ll let you work out how long I’ve been lucky enough to spend my days with these amazing little people (the adults here are pretty amazing too.) Apart from two years when I moved to year 1, I’ve been based in our reception class. It’s great as I’m now seeing the children of children coming into school.

I’m happiest when outdoors, walking or gardening, which is lucky as January or June you’ll find us enjoying our super outside area.

Although I’m always sad when the children move on in July, seeing them embrace the new challenges each school year asks of them is lovely. My wish for every child is to develop a love of learning which will last a lifetime.
