The Teachers

Mr Wignall (1MW)

I have worked at Ash Green Academy for two years in Reception and Year 1. Before this I completed my teacher training at Keele University after working in the private sector for 10 years. I love working at Ash Green as the children are brilliant and have a fantastic thirst for learning. I am looking forward to working in KS1 this year with more fantastic children and a fantastic team.

Mrs Tunnicliffe (1AT and Key Stage One Leader)

I want children to be inspired by learning, engaged in the learning process and to excel in all that they do.

I joined Ash Green in the Summer term of 2016, since then I have had the opportunity to work across both Year 1 and Year 2, whilst also working alongside many different fantastic members of the Ash Green Team! Prior to Ash Green, I have had experience of teaching in inner city schools as well as small rural settings. 

My current role is Year 2 teacher and Key Stage One leader. Since starting at Ash Green I have had many opportunities to develop both professionally and personally and I wear many different hats! My passion for phonics has led me to lead this subject across the school and develop early reading from Early Years up to Key Stage 2. This role enables me to work with children across school and follow them on their reading journey. 

I love being involved with the school community and I am a member of our school’s PTFA. Our PTFA have organised fantastic events that have raised funds for our school playgrounds. If you don’t follow us already, please drop us a ‘like’ on Facebook @ ‘Ash Green PTFA’
