The Staff in Lower Key Stage Two:

Miss S Cloherty - Year 3 Class Teacher

Hi everyone, I'm really excited to be part of the team here at Crumpsall Lane Primary School.

After completing my Law degree I ventured to China to teach English and I fell in love with all aspects of the job.  I returned to the UK and completed my teacher training 4 years ago.

I used to dance professionally so this is one of my main passions in life.  I also love to sing. I'm definitely a Karaoke Queen!!

Overall I am a well rounded teacher with a bubbly personality and high ambitions.

Mrs P Cassidy - Teaching Assistant

It was great last year being involved in setting up the new school library.  It is amazing, filled with lots of exciting books to read.  If you've not been, why not call in and take a look.

In my spare time I enjoy going for walks and eating out with my family and friends.

Hi, I'm Miss Medley.  I have a baby girl called Isla Rose and I love being a mummy, helping her to learn new things and become more independent each day.

I have worked with children from birth to 5 years for the past 12 years.  I am currently working in Year 3 and loving the change and new challenges.

I have worked at Crumpsall Lane for 8 years now and worked with many pupils in EYFS and then watched them leave in Year 6 reaching their full potential as they set off for high school.
