I have been working for the Phoenix Federation since 2020. I have worked across both schools and have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with all the children.

I am immensely enjoying my time here at Grinling Gibbons and I am proud to be part of a dynamic and innovating school, that is well-equipped with all of the tools needed to foster and encourage learning.

I love teaching and enjoy being part of a culturally diverse school where children feel valued, respected, acknowledged and appreciated. It is always a pleasure to see children succeed and grow

Kayann Reid – Learning Support Assistant – Year 1

I have been working at Grinling Gibbons since September 2020 and I have loved every minute of it. The pupils and staff make the school a great place to work and create such a positive environment for us all.

Seeing the children grow and develop in all aspects of their learning, and knowing that we helped them to achieve their goals, makes my job very rewarding. Not only do I love supporting teaching the children in the classroom, I also have the opportunity to run several after school clubs, including dance, hairdressing, and baking club.

It is such a rewarding experience to be able to teach our pupils different skills that they really enjoy and can use throughout their lives. I am very proud to be a member of the Grinling Gibbons community.

I have worked at Grinling Gibbons since January 2016, in the nursery and reception. It is such a fantastic place to work, as the pupils and staff make it such a special place. I love being part of such a wonderful school community, and it is a genuine pleasure to work here and teach our pupils as they are all such lovely children and enthusiastic learners.
