Jess Harrison – Lead Teacher

Hello, my name is Miss Jess Harrison and I am the Lead Teacher in the Nest. I am also the Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator for the school. 

 

 

George Parkes – Senior Learning Mentor

Hi, my name is Mrs George Parkes and I have worked at Christ Church and St Peter’s school for 18 years. During this time I worked as a Teaching Assistant and moved to work in the Inclusion Team as an Assistant Learning Mentor, before working as a Learning Mentor with children throughout the whole school. Additionally, I ran the Nurture group in which I was able to engage with the children to improve their social skills. During this time, I realised I had a natural flare working alongside children with specific social, emotional and mental needs.

 

I started as the Senior Learning Mentor in the Nest in 2019 working alongside children with SEMH needs. I am the DSL for the children in the Nest, as well as for the mainstream. I have had specific training to ensure that I am up to date with the current guidance, and make sure all children in my care are safe. I have received relevant training to be able to carry out my role in the Nest. Training such as; Team Teach, Emotion Coaching, Behaviour training, in house THRIVE Approach training, Know me to Teach me, to name a few. During this role, I liaise and work with parents/careers, and other outside agencies alongside the Lead Teacher to meet the children’s social and emotional needs.
