Foundation Stage

Mrs Miller

My name is Mrs Miller. I am the Foundation Stage Leader and work alongside Mrs Shackleton and Miss Culshaw in the Foundation Stage unit.

I am an experienced foundation stage teacher and have taught in various schools in different areas including the Isle of Man and Manchester.

This year I am leading PSHE, RE & Worship in the curriculum and I am one of the schools Assistant Headteachers. Along with my role as Assistant Head Teacher I oversee the 2 By Two room and work very closely with our pre-school.

We have an online Learning Journal which enables parents to keep up to date with their child’s learning and development on a daily basis.

In the Foundation Stage Unit reception and preschool work closely together covering the same topics which will include- learning about themselves and special people, food and harvest, Christmas, cold lands and many more throughout the year .

I believe that by working in partnership with parents and carers I can, and will help your child to develop and achieve through fun and exciting learning experiences.

I look forward to the year ahead and hope the children will have as much fun as I will!
