Simone Smith

Learning Support Assistant

I am 50 years old and have worked at Lanesend for 4 years, firstly as a MSA then I trained to become a LSA. I have 3 children aged 32, 30 and 11! My youngest attended Lanesend and I feel the school prepared her well for secondary school. I have two grand-daughters (and one honorary), one of which is in Year 1 at Lanesend. She has additional education needs and our AEN department is amazing at the things they do for all our children with extra needs.

Prior to working here I have worked behind bars when I was in my twenties, and in different establishments as a second chef. Cooking, art, literacy and French are my passions in learning and I am still learning with the children I work with daily.

I love being part of ‘Team Lanesend’!
