Foundation Team

Hi! My name is Mrs. Parker and I am one of the teachers in F2. I am very excited to be part of the Highwood staff and to work within this dedicated and talented team. I have been teaching for fifteen years and have experienced all ages from Foundation Stage to year 6. My recent experience has been in early years where I love giving children opportunities to be imaginative, creative and to develop as independent learners.Out of school I enjoy spending time with my family, going for walks and cycling. We also enjoy having fun at theme parks!

Mrs Atkinson

Hello. I'm Mrs Atkinson and I'm delighted to be joining the Highwood Foundation Stage team. I've worked across the whole primary age range, but I love Early Years the most and have spent twelve years teaching in Nursery and Reception. I'm passionate about helping little people to become excited, independent and creative learners. The learning behaviours at Highwood will definitely help me to do that. Like most children, I love exploring outside too, whatever the weather, as long as I have the right clothing. Outside of work, I enjoy walking, narrow boating, spending time with my family and travelling - there's a whole big world to explore!

Miss Hargreaves

Hello everybody! My name is Miss Hargreaves, and I am a class teacher in F2.  This is my second year of teaching at Highwood, and I am very excited to be continuing to work with such a skilled and enthusiastic team! I am passionate about the importance of early years' education, and I look forward to helping children develop a lifelong love of learning through the schools’ learning behaviours. Outside of school, I often go home to Sheffield to see my friends and family – we love to go on long walks in the Peak District.
