Welcome to Year 2 - Greece Class
Mrs A Pritlove - I first started working at Cirencester Primary School back in 2009, when it operated as an Infant School. Since our amalgamation with the neighbouring juniors, I have seen the school go from strength to strength and am proud to be a part of it’s success.
I completed my teacher training at the University of Gloucestershire. However, the bright lights of London beckoned and I spent the first three years of my career working in an inner city school in Redbridge. Working in such a diverse multicultural setting provided me with the unique opportunity to learn just as much from the children as they did from me.
I am passionate that the children I teach have a culture of lifelong learning embedded into their very being. The most rewarding thing about my job is the immeasurable impact a teacher can have on the lives of young people. Therefore, I constantly strive to be a role model that cultivates curiosity in children and instils a belief that they can and will achieve their very best.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my young family. You may often catch me riding the bumpy slides in MagicLand! I am also a keen runner and have completed two half marathons.
My Geography background is still important to me and I enjoy travelling; seeing new places and finding out about different cultures, as well as spending time outside; walking, gardening, building dens and splashing in puddles. When I am not busy at school or with my girls, I love to be curled up with a book, reading. I think reading is hugely important and try to pass this passion on to the children I work with in school.
Mrs L Hill - I am a qualified nursery nurse and have worked in various early years settings, starting as a Nursery Nurse before progressing to Deputy Manager and then on to Nursery Manager for a large day nursery.
I had my own children and became a full-time mum. Once my children started their education at CPS I became a parent volunteer at the school. I loved helping out in a school environment and decided to undertake my teaching assistant qualification at Cirencester College, qualifying in July 2015.
I continued as a volunteer at the school and also volunteered for the charity Homestart, which was a very fulfilling thing to have done, I feel I made a difference to the families I helped.
I became a permanent member of staff at CPS in April 2017, working in KS1. I have loved going back to work and have a good work/home life balance. I felt very comfortable and welcomed when volunteering at this school and so decided that was where I wanted to work. In my spare time, (the little I have!) I love to spend time with my children and walking our dog, Lexie.
