Rachel Blackie, Staff
Role on Board:
This is my 6th year at Bridgewater. Throughout this time I have been lucky enough to work across the year groups, in various roles. From crazy days in Reception, to SATS with Year 6.
I currently work in Year 2. I have recently qualified as a Forest School Teacher and I am in our gorgeous woods three afternoons a week, with different year groups.
Prior to Bridgewater I worked across various sectors, in administration, finance and office management. The move to work with children was a game changer for me. I am passionate about children getting the most out of their education, with their wellbeing always at the forefront.
Interest in being a Governor:
Bridgewater takes a real team effort. Staff and children work together in unity to provide a start for children unlike anything else found locally. We have our own woodland and treehouse, which not many schools can say they have! I have a passion for education and believe that all children are unique and deserve to be nurtured on their own individual learning journey.
