Three newly-appointed teachers are settling into life at a Longridge primary school and looking forward to new and exciting challenges.
Totally new to Barnacre Road Primary School are Roxann Maguire and Adelle Hetherington, while Billy Walton - who has done teaching placements at the school - is now officially appointed as Year Four teacher.
Adelle and Roxann have joined the Foundation Stage staff in nursery and reception.
For this, Adelle was able to use her skills as an experienced early years’ teacher while Roxann has just completed her training, specialising in the Early Years.
Billy, who is from Preston, trained at Edge Hill University and previously did youth work with the Princes Trust.
Roxann, who is from Grimsargh, also trained at Edge Hill University and did an Early years Specialism, has an arts degree and has previously worked in Girl Guiding.
Adelle, who is from a Preesall farming family, worked previously at a school in Fleetwood.
She has five years’ experience in nursery and reception and is a Rainbows’ leader.
The three have agreed they are really impressed by their new pupils’ good behaviour, how well the children all play together, and how quickly they have settled into the new term.
• There will be a whole school open day on Wednesday, October 23, for a chance to meet the new staff and a specific Foundation Stage open afternoon on Wednesday, October 9, from 1.30 until 3.30pm.
