Learning Support Assistants

Mrs. J. Whitehead

I have been working at Friezland Primary School for 28 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 for 15 years. 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.
