I have been working at Friezland Primary School for 22 years and am a Higher Level Teaching Assistant. At present I spend a lot of time working in Class 3 but have worked in every class over the years. I have another role within school, that of Resource and Environment Team Leader. This involves working closely with other support staff and working on Health and Safety issues in school.
I am married with 2 grown up children and enjoy reading, playing sport and listening to music. Before I came to Friezland I was an accountant with Oldham MBC.
I have worked at Friezland as a Learning Support Assistant for 14 years. I currently work between Classes 3 and 4, supporting individual pupils, groups of children and providing PPA cover.
I enjoy learning with the children and have studied, and passed, GCSE Spanish, I have completed a course on sign language and have learnt to play a brass instrument alongside pupils in Class 3. In addition to this I have completed professional qualifications.
During my time at Friezland I have been a Govenor and have been a member of both the Pastoral and Teaching and Learning teams.
Outside school my interests include baking, walking and travelling.
I have worked at Friezland for 7 years. I started on 15 hours a week and now work 26 hours. I currently support children in the classroom and also work with small groups. During my time here I have completed training in A.S.D. Lego Therapy, letters and sounds and an Honours Degree in Early Years education. Outside of work I enjoy walking my dog and spending time with my family.

Hello, I’ve been working at Friezland for 7 years. I’m am a Higher Level Teaching Assistant, therefore I help children in all classes, but I spend most of my time in class 1 and 3. I have a degree in Business and Human Resource Management but prefer the challenges of daily life in a busy school.
Mrs. S. Smithies
This is my fifth year working as an LSA at Friezland Primary School. I work in class 2 in the mornings and class 1 in the afternoons. Like Mrs Meadham I am also from the North East of England but don’t worry, Geordie is kept strictly for the staff room. I am married with 2 wonderful children. I enjoy most sports, reading and watching my children participate in their many sporting activities.

At present I am studying Intermediate Spanish as part of my degree.
Mr. P. Freeman
I work as a teaching assistant in classes 4 and 3. I enjoy reading with the children and I also run football club. Maybe one of our pupils will be good enough to play for Liverpool one day! I used to work for Manchester Council, but my aim is to start teacher training next year.
