I have been teaching since 2001, having taught in junior schools and primary schools across Hertfordshire. I joined Bridgewater at an exciting time as it became a primary school. I was able to bring with me the experience of having taught all primary year groups, and at Bridgewater I have been lucky enough to teach four different year groups. As such, I have been able to do what I like best about teaching - forging links with families by teaching siblings and becoming part of the school community as well as the wider community.
In each class I teach, I strive to ensure that all children become independent, resilient learners who feel secure enough to take risks and learn from each other. This will continue to be paramount for the Year 3’s this year, as they tackle the new Key Stage 2 curriculum.
Mrs Hardyman will be taking on a new role of Pastoral Lead across KS1 and KS2.
