Hello, I’m Claire. I am a teaching and individual needs assistant here at Carden. I am very passionate about supporting children to access their work in a way that they understand. I am always exploring ways to help each child I work with enjoy school, see what they are capable of and find meaning in their learning and school journey. I have learnt a lot about child development and supporting emotional development over the years and I have recently trained as a Youth Mental Health First Aider. Supporting children to express all of their feelings in healthy ways, feel positive about themselves and their abilities is a key part of my role.
