Head of EYFS

Miss Davies

I graduated in 2007 with a Fine Art degree from the University of Reading, working primarily in sculpture and installation. Whilst studying, I worked part-time in various clubs and projects for children, including children with SEN and their siblings. I developed a real interest in working with the very youngest children and spent a year as a Teaching Assistant (at St Joseph’s and another local school) before completing my Primary PGCE with an Early Years specialism. I taught Year 2 at a school in Reading town centre until 2010, when the opportunity arose for me to join St Joseph’s College as the Early Years teacher. During my time at St Joseph’s, there has been much change, including the building of our Acorn Centre and of course the transition to our fully established Co-Educational community. What has remained constant is the deeply caring and committed learning environment in which I am fortunate to work.

I am currently the Year 2 teacher which I love! As Head of EYFS, I am also very much engaged with our youngest children and enjoy teaching them for French and RE. I am passionate about the EYFS as a precious time for children to develop within a truly supportive and nurturing environment. As such, I am also committed to developing the team in order that children experience the highest quality learning and care. I completed my Masters in Education (Early Years) at the University of Reading, taking a special interest in the development of 3-5 year olds and gender stereotypes in play.

Outside of work, I continue to make Art, now focussing on textile pieces and spend many happy hours watching my daughter horse ride. I also have a beautiful Ragdoll cat who thinks I do an excellent job of grooming!
