Mrs N Byng - Rainbow Room Nurture Lead, Reception Teacher
I qualified as a teacher in 2000, which is when my teaching career at Westlands first began.
Initially I taught year 1 and then Reception before leaving to teach at a school in Bromsgrove. Two years later, however, I heard there was a teaching vacancy in the Early Years Unit and returned to Westlands where my heart really belonged.
Following 2 years with Early Years I began teaching in Rainbow House, the Schools Nurture Group, working in such a small group you get to know the children inside and out, and build really strong relationships with their families. As a result, this has developed my passion for making a difference to children's lives.
My latest change includes continuing the Nurture Class each morning then teaching in Reception during the afternoons. I love working with the youngest children in the school, and I feel it is a real privilege to be able to do this.
