The Teachers

Miss Griffiths

I have always enjoyed working with children. After my Natural Sciences degree at the University of Cambridge, I worked as a youth and children’s worker and then trained for my PGCE at Keele University. I have been at Ash Green since November 2014. I have taught Year 5 and 6. I love teaching Science and I am the Science leader at Ash Green. I was recently awarded the status of a Chartered Science Teacher. So far during my time at Ash Green, I have been involved in a variety of fun activities, such as reliving war-time air raids and evacuation, performing Shakespeare at the New Vic, holding Anglo-Saxon trials, doing an archaeological dig, going on residential trips and running a Dragons’ Den project. I am passionate about giving children great learning experiences; I think that is the best part of my job.

Miss Blake

I have always been extremely passionate about working with children. After finishing my English and History degree at Sheffield Hallam University in 2020, I embarked on my PGCE at Sheffield Hallam University in 2021 and I loved every moment! I am a newly-qualified teacher which means I started my role at Ash Green in November 2021. In such a short space of time, I have been involved in lots of fun activities and I have built great relationships with my pupils, staff and parents. Amongst the many things I have been involved with so far, my favourites have been our trip to Tatton Park and our up-coming Shakespeare performance. For me, the key to being a successful teacher is having the children at the heart of everything you do. My ultimate priority is making sure that every child gets an outstanding quality of education. Therefore, this philosophy remains at the forefront of all my teaching here at Ash Green.
