Breakfast Club Team
Mrs K MooreBreakfast Club Manager
Mrs K Moore
I have worked in school since 2012.
I like the different everyday challenges working in school brings and the enjoyment of seeing children happy and learning.
My favourite moments are when children have struggled with a task for a while but still persevered on, the moment they understand how to do it and can then do it independently is fantastic. To me the best moments working in school are seeing the children achieving, learning and smiling.
The word to describe me as a professional is 'Dedicated'.

I have worked at Valley View for ten years.
The best thing about my job is that no two days are the same.
I have thought about my funniest moment and there are too many to recall as I laugh every day.
A word to describe me would be 'Determined'.

I have worked in schools for 25 years on and off. At Rodley and Valley View continuously for the last 15 years.
I enjoy working in school. It's a super place to work - so much going on. No two days are ever the same. As for working at lunchtimes and breakfast club, when the children have been fed and watered, been kept safe and cared for, then it's a job well done. It's good to feel you've been a part of a team of staff that works well together and have made that happen.
So many things have been funny - like the time I made meringues with the children which turned out like pancakes, or I got stuck in the rings on the ski slope at Xscape whilst on a school trip and I couldn't get out for laughing and no one else could help for laughing! - to the things the children say or do that make me laugh. The best and most amazing thing ever is when a child achieves something that they have once struggled with and you see the look of pride on their face (Wow, wow, wow!)
A word to describe me: 'Caring'.

Miss B RawlinsonThis is my first school I have worked in and I love it; I started at Valley View in 2020.I love the kindness and support the staff show others at Valley View as well as watching the children grow in their learning, whether that's in lessons or in things they find interest in/questions they ask.A funny thing that has happened to me in school is when it was coming up to my birthday and one of children guessed I was 104!!! I'm really not, I'm much much younger!The word to describe me best as a professional is 'Evolving'.
Mrs L WardBreakfast Club Assistant
Mrs L Ward
I have been working in school for over 15 years.
I always wanted to work with children, even when I left school, but ended up working in a department store for 13 years, having only meant to stay for a year! It took a while, but now I am working with children!
A funny thing that happened is when a Year 4 child once asked to go to the toilet, and I told him to go straight in and out again. He then asked to go to the toilet again a few minutes later, and when I said You've only just been, he said but you told me to go in and out again, I didn't actually go to the toilet!
A word to describe me would be 'Confidential'.
Mrs K McNivenNursery Breakfast Club Manager
Mrs K McNiven
I have worked in school nurseries for since 2007.
I like helping the nursery children developing into independent, confident little people, who are ready to start school.
I love to listen to the children whilst they play. Their imaginations make me laugh. I also like it when they achieve something that seems so small, like putting on their own coat, makes them so proud of themselves.
I am 'Patient'.
