The Teachers

Mrs Firkins

I believe that all children have the ability to achieve their full potential if given the opportunity to do so. For this reason I am proud to say that I have been a member of Ash Green since October 2018. My teaching degree is in Early years and childhood education so I prefer to remain in key stage 1 or Early years for this reason.

Prior to Ash Green I have worked in schools for 12 years as a support role, through nurture, counselling and classroom support. I have worked in various classes from nursery to year 6. Throughout this time I have seen teachers work in many different ways to encourage children to achieve their full potentials.

I am currently the music lead for school and look forward to gaining further experience as a teacher whilst at Ash Green.

Miss Ash

My name is Lauren Ash and I am an Early Careers Teacher after graduating from the University of Derby in 2022. I have got a Master of Education award in Primary Education, specialising in Physical Activity. I have worked in and experienced many schools across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire, varying in year groups. I have also had experience in a range of different schools; faith schools, private schools,  infant schools and junior schools. Further to this, I have worked in a private day nursery in their Pre-School unit, which has helped me to understand the starting points of Education. I am so excited to be a part of the Ash Green Family.
