Welcome to Pankhurst Class
Hello everyone, I’m Mr Pickford. I am thrilled to be here at Sandhurst covering for Miss Beaney, and consider myself very lucky to have joined such a friendly and welcoming school.
I have been working in education for most of my adult life, starting my time in schools working with special needs children in after school clubs and as a teaching assistant. I then made the very exciting move to teach in China where I spent 2 and a half years in an international school, delivering English lessons, and other subjects to children from ages 3 to 12.
Since then I have worked full time in schools in the UK as well as a supply teacher.
My favourite subjects in school are anything geographical, maths and computing.
Miss Beaney will return from maternity leave in April 2021
Hello, I’m Miss Beaney and I am the Year 4 teacher and SENCo at Sandhurst Primary school. I started my journey at Sandhurst as a Teaching Assistant in 2015. I have been here ever since and thoroughly enjoy my time in KS1 and more recently as the SENCo.
I have a degree in Acting, so you will always catch me and the children dancing and singing our way through the day, whether it be completing Kung Fu punctuation or singing our times tables.
My biggest passion is all things SEN, and I love spending time in all the year groups ensuring all children have equal opportunities!
