My name is Annabel Brighton, my family and I moved to Needham Market a couple of years ago and have felt hugely welcomed into such a lovely, kind community. My son is just starting in Reception after going through the fantastic Nursery for 5 terms, and we all feel really excited about the journey he will embark on here at Bosmere.
I am a Primary Teacher, specialising in Early Years. I am very passionate about learning through play and encouraging a huge breadth of experiences for children in their first years. I am also a huge advocate for encouraging a love of reading from an early age. Both my boys love books and have such an interest in sharing a book together (although my youngest HAS to be about vehicles; tractors in particular). And my oldest has just started reading everything in sight, including the soap and crisp packets! I love phonics, because although it sounds super complicated it’s actually such a fantastic, systematic method of learning to read.
I hope I can bring a dual perspective to the governing body; being a parent, whilst also being knowledgable about the education system.
