Year One Team
Miss Naomi Claridge, Mrs Vicky Young and Mr James Doo
Miss Naomi Claridge is the teacher for Goldcrests class and she is supported by the Learning Support Assistants, Mrs Vicky Young and Mrs Sabrina Murphy.
Miss Claridge is in her fourth year teaching at West Blatchington Primary and Nursery School and in the past has taught in year 4 and year 1. She loves to plan and teach engaging lessons that the children enjoy and talk about afterwards. She has great belief in encouraging children to believe in themselves in all aspects of the curriculum, and ensures that within her lessons all children are able to achieve. Her first degree was in geography, and she has a real interest and wealth of knowledge around this area, which she tries to incorporate into her teaching as often as possible. She feels that having an understanding of the world around us is an important and useful skill that all children need.
Miss Claridge loves teaching at West Blatchington, and she is looking forward to all of the exciting things planned for this year and beyond!
Learning in the classroom is supported by Mrs Young, whilst Mr Doo is an Individual Needs Assistant and provides specific individual pupil support.
