Huw

Class Teacher  

I am Huw, a Teacher at Our Place Schools. I am passionate and dedicated with over a decade of experience in supporting and educating students with diverse learning needs and challenging behaviour. My journey in special education began with a deep-seated desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children who require individualized attention and support.

My teaching philosophy centres on the belief that every child has the potential to learn and thrive, given the right support and encouragement. I am committed to creating an inclusive classroom where students feel valued and empowered. I strive to design engaging and interactive lesson plans that not only meet academic goals but also promote life skills and social development.

Outside the classroom, I enjoy sports, running, climbing and the gym, and listening to music and I strive to incorporate these into the classroom as much as possible. For example, rock climbing trips for DofE.

I believe that patience, empathy, and creativity are essential qualities for a special needs teacher. My goal is to be a steadfast advocate for my students, helping them navigate their educational journeys and achieve their fullest potential.

Mark M

Class Teacher 

I teach at Our Place Schools and have extensive experience working with children and families with SEN. Over the past eight-plus years, whilst at Our Place Schools, I have dedicated my career to supporting SEN students and fostering inclusive learning environments. I recently completed my degree in Early Childhood with a specialisation in SEN, which has equipped me with the knowledge and skills to serve the students at school better.

In addition to my teaching role, I am the school’s current Careers Lead, where I guide and support students in their career planning and development where appropriate.

Beyond my professional life, I am a parent to an 11-year-old and a 5-year-old. This personal experience enriches my understanding and empathy towards the needs and challenges students and their families face.

Katie

Class Teacher 

Hello, my name is Katie and I joined Our Place School in January this year.
I previously worked in an inner city Birmingham school for five and half years. I worked in year 1, 5 and 6 as a teacher.
At Our Place School, I am looking to learn all about how to support children who have additional needs and I want to support all those to achieve their full potential, in both academic and personal social skills too.

Sumaya

Class Teacher 

 

As a teacher, I am committed to creating a fun, safe, and inclusive learning environment for all students. I believe that every child has the potential to succeed and that as educators, it’s our job to help them reach their full potential. My specialty is working with pupils that have Autism and I believe that education is not the filling of a pot but the lighting of a fire.
