West Bridgford Junior School

We are looking forward to welcoming all our pupils back to school on Monday 8th March. All arrangements remain the same as they were for the Autumn 2020 term.

Ms. Kerry - Year 3 Teaching Assistant/ELSA



Nice of you to drop by, so thank you for your interest.smiley


I've been working at the Junior School for quite a few years; certainly more than I care to think of. I originally joined the school as a Parent Teacher Association member and soon became the Chair. Because of that, I used to be in school quite a lot and was eventually asked to help out as a Midday Supervisor by Mrs Holmes. It wasn't what I really wanted to do. However, as my youngest son had a disability, I felt working more than the minimum hours disadvantaged my family. I soon realised I loved working in the school and decided to retrain as a Teaching Assistant. So here I am today! 


I feel my experience as a mother of a child (now adult), with several needs, serves me well in understanding and empathising with those children and families that have a child in need of extra support. 


Apart from my work, I'm a pretty hands on kind of person and have, in the past, be known to be a bit of a DIYer; ripping out walls, redesigning and creating garden and ponds, not to mention refitting my bathrooms. In addition to this I have been known to make a few costumes for school productions and take just a few photographs of events within the school ;) 


Over the years I've worked in all year groups with the exception of year three. Just over two years ago I joined the Year 3 Team. I'm loving the challenges it brings and am so glad to have the opportunity to work with yet another super team, super children and all in all, a fabulous, caring and inspiring school.
