Whole School Support

Mrs Belcher


I first came to Newhey CP school as a parent-quite a few years ago now.  I live locally and am married with three children.  All three of my children attended Newhey CP and have fond memories of the school.

I started my employment here as a lunchtime supervisor, a role which I still enjoy.  I have completed lots of training over the years and continue to do so.  I am now employed as a Teaching Assistant, Level 3.  I have qualified in the teaching of PSHE and completed a basic counselling course.  My role here at Newhey is to help support pupils’ Emotional Literacy both in and out of the classroom.  This is a very rewarding job which enables me to take home a lot of job satisfaction.

I am also a member of the eco council, school council and governing body.

Out of school, I enjoy spending time with my family.  I recommend Newhey CP to any parent thinking of placing their child here.  I look forward to coming to work every day and feel privileged to be part of the Newhey team.
