Teaching & Support Staff
Hi, I am Mrs Barnett, I am a Communication Support Worker for the hearing impaired and have been for the last 10 years. My job involves aiding the learning journey and inclusion of children with a hearing impairment in an educational setting. I currently work in Year 1 alongside Mrs Shaw and Mrs Bickerton at Forsbrook Primary. I thoroughly enjoy being around the children I work with and seeing the development and achievements along the way is a magical experience. I help to raise the awareness of deafness throughout the school and in Year 1 currently we do a ‘sign of the week’ of which, all the children participate and use daily around the school to communicate with other peers, in assembly’s and Christmas plays.
Outside of school one of the things I enjoy is scuba diving. I recently completed my PADI open water certification and was able to go out into the open water and dive in Mexico, which was beautiful. I plan to do the ‘Velocity’ zip line as my next challenge!
My family, my friends and the relationships I build with others through the work I do are the most important things to me. I am eager to continue teaching and learning, Forsbrook Primary definitely has a special place in my heart.
