Reception - Mrs Harrison 2019 - 2020

Mrs Harrison



My name is Mrs Harrison and I teach in Reception along with Mrs Stewart. I first came to Northway on my final teaching practice from Edge Hill University. The children, staff and ethos of the school captured my heart and after teaching in another school for my NQT year, I returned to Northway. I have now been a member of the teaching staff at Northway since 2006. As well as teaching in Reception I am also responsible for leading the development, progress, attainment and well-being of all children in EYFS and Key Stage One. I am also responsible for promoting the social, emotional and spiritual development of all children in my role as Religious Education and PSHE leader at our school.
