Hello I am Jo Craddock. I first starting teaching at Lobely Hill in 1999 as a Reception teacher. I had a break from teaching whilst my family were young, but after 9 years, I decided to return to teaching, and the school I love, and have been back for the past 5 years. Being a part of Lobely Hill for so long we now have pupils in school whose parents I used to teach – and I am still only 21! Lobley Hill is an inspiring place where staff strive to encourage all children achieve their potential and I am proud to be a member of the team!
I currently work part time in school, between Year 1 and also Nursery. My passion lies with Early Years teaching and outdoor education. I enjoy supporting and teaching children important lifelong skills such as co-operation, empathy for the environment and for other people, health and wellbeing and the ability to problem solve.
