Mr Anderson-PughAssociate Headteacher
I am very proud to say that I am the Associate Headteacher here at the Reginald Mitchell Primary School. I have been teaching for 15 years, starting my career at Sandon Primary School before moving to Ball Green Primary in 2010.
I enjoy going to the gym, playing football, watching Stoke City and travelling (especially to places with rich history and culture). My secret pleasure is watching the odd musical!
Mrs SmithNursery Teacher
I have been teaching for about 7 years. I have taught at Reginald Mitchell for the last 6 years in Year One. I am currently in charge of History and Geography in the school and I'm about to take on the role of SENCO. I love working in Early Years and KS1. My main aim is to make sure the children feel happy and safe.
In my spare time, I love ballet and spending time with my children.
Mrs SimpsonNursery Teacher
I have worked in nursery settings for the past 9 years and I have loved every minute. I have one year old twins, Billy and Hattie and they keep me very busy with their favourite playtime activity being finding objects in cooked spaghetti!!! Very messy but great fun!!! When we do have some spare time we like to go on long family walks in the countryside with our little dog Henry. I am also a big fan of the great British bake off and I love making lots of yummy cakes and treats.
Since beginning my teaching career in 2008 I have taught a range of year groups and have found that my passion lies in the Early Years. I believe that every child deserves the very best start in life and with an excellent team of professionals working around me I believe that as Foundation Stage Leader at Reginald Mitchell I can help make sure this happens.
As a parent of 3 girls aged 10 to 2 there is very little 'me' time in my life. Instead we enjoy lots of 'we' time and spend most of our family days at Chester Zoo, Trentham or out with our two dogs.

I am originally from Lancashire, but I moved to Stoke six years ago when I met my husband. I have just finished my NQT year in Y3 and will be the new Y2 teacher.
I love music, enjoy meals out and going to the pictures. Growing up in the 90's means a love for Oasis and The Verve. My favourite Author is Roald Dahl and as a child, I was convinced I'd be the next Miss Honey.

I have been teaching at Reginald Mitchell for the last 12 years. I have seen many changes since my time here began and I am sure that I will see many more in education as the years pass by.
I feel privileged to have shared my career with the children at Reginald Mitchell and grateful for the support given to me by the parents of those children I have been fortunate enough to have had in my care.
New challenges await and I look forward to being part of what makes all the children at Reginald Mitchell the special people that they are.
