Mrs de Grande - Class Teacher

Hello, I am Mrs de Grande.  I have been teaching since 2006 and my career has included 5 years as a secondary school teacher, before moving to teach in primary schools.  I taught Year 6, here at SMC, for almost 5 years before moving to teach the Year 5 class, last year, and love the challenges that come with preparing pupils for their transition into the next phase of their education at secondary school.  I have also taught across all of KS2, and have had a number of short stints in year 2 as a supply and cover teacher.  In addition to my teaching, I am the Assistant Headteacher with lead responsibility for Curriculum and Assessment and am also the Staff Governor for the school.
