Miss Bishop (Red Reception, EYFS leader)

I am now in my seventh year of teaching, after graduating from Sheffield Hallam in 2012 with a BA Hons in Early Years Education. I have worked in childcare settings such as PFI's since the age of 17 and previous to teaching at Ash Green, I have taught both Y1 and EYFS in two Stoke on Trent schools.

Teaching Early Years is my passion, and I am so lucky to be able to say that I absolutely love everything about my job. During my teaching career, I have been fortunate enough to develop my skills as a leader, alongside supporting others with developing subject knowledge and their own teaching abilities.

I work hard to be the best teacher that I can and will always look to develop my own skills in order to provide the best education for the children in my care.

The EYFS is such an important stage in any child’s educational journey, if we can support children by instilling a love of learning, from a young age, children can reach their potential and achieve anything that they like!

Teaching is an immensely rewarding career and I could not be happier to begin the start of my next chapter as EYFS leader at Ash Green Primary Academy!

Mrs Parsons (Blue Reception)

I have been lucky enough to have taught across the key stages, teaching in Key Stage One and Two before being given the opportunity to teach within the early years. This was when I discovered my passion lies within the early years, supporting and enabling children to learn and develop and nurturing their curiosity. I have taught within Reception and Nursery and am enjoying being part of the team at Ash Green.
