Mrs Clare Duffield

Year 1 Teacher

I have been working in Education for over 20 years.

My background training is as an Early Years Specialist, where I developed my knowledge of child development, child psychology and learning through play. I then went to complete my teacher training and have worked in schools ever since.

I find teaching extremely rewarding albeit challenging, exhausting and frustrating at times! It is an amazing feeling when you see a struggling child finally understand a new concept you have been teaching. These ‘light bulb’ moments are what teaching is all about, helping children achieve.

A Few Things About Me

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, running, cooking and reading. I have 2 teenage children who I am extremely proud of. My son is a cinematographer and my daughter is in Year 11 at Sackville.
