Higher Level Teaching Assistant
I am Mrs Richards. I started working in our school in September 2000. I have worked across the year groups from nursery through to year 6. I am also the school librarian.
Outside of school I am happiest when with my family and friends. I love visiting Paphos in Cyprus and spending weekends down in Devon with my husband and two sons. I also love all things Harry Potter!
My name is Mrs Blundell and I work in the nursery class, I started working at Woodlands back in 2015 after working for many years in private day nurseries across Bristol. I am a very relaxed, and laid back person who is very passionate about looking after children, I very much enjoy being part of helping children to flourish, and work towards them becoming happy and confident individuals, it's very important to me that I provide a caring and comfortable environment for all of the children who come to our nursery. I have also experienced working in other areas of the school providing support with speech and language.
Outside of school I love to spend time with my husband and 3 children spending time outdoors with them walking in the woods, or going on day trips to look at the amazing monkeys and orangutans as they are my most favourite thing!
I am Mrs Burbage, the Teaching Assistant for a child with additional needs. I joined Woodlands Academy in 2017, previously working in a Pre-School for 7 years. I use Makaton sign language to aid communication between the children.
Outside of Woodlands, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, son and daughter and making special memories together.
I am Miss Smith, I joined Woodlands in March 2020. I have previously completely my training at another school and worked throughout KS2 which also meant going on a number of school camps which were lots of fun! I am very passionate about my job and I enjoy encouraging children to be enthusiastic about their learning and enjoy their time at school.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, travelling and watching rugby!
I am Miss Thomas. I came to this school as an apprentice at the beginning of 2016. I am still working as an apprentice to become a fully qualified TA and I am loving every second. I am based in year 4 and my favourite lesson is Maths.
In my free time I enjoy singing in a barbershop chorus every week and love to just sit down with a good book or watch a funny movie!
