Miss S Galliers

Assistant Head - Reception Teacher

I am just entering my 10th year of teaching at Little Parndon.


I have experience of teaching the entire primary age range, having taught from foundation stage to year 6, but my passion is for teaching in the foundation stage.


I believe that all children should look forward to every day they spend in school, so it is important to work hard to create an environment in which they will feel safe, nurtured, stimulated and excited, while at the same time being challenged and stretched to achieve their full potential.


In foundation stage it is a great pleasure and a privilege to teach and nurture the children to develop and grow; becoming confident and independent learners who are ready to join the rest of the school.


I am very fortunate in being able to lead the foundation stage, but also in being able to have a lead role in transition.


Having responsibility for transition enables me to support children as they take their first steps into the next stage of their educational journey; whether from pre-school to foundation stage, foundation stage to year 1 or from Year 6 into secondary school.
