Mrs Emma Richards
Year 6 teacher
I joined Estcots after completing my teaching degree at Brighton University, and since being here have worked both as a cover supervisor and a class teacher. My year as a cover supervisor saw me teaching all classes in the school, sometimes several different ones over the course of a day! It was a fantastic way to get a feel for the school, and work alongside all the children and teachers. Although it was a difficult job, it had many rewards, and after a year I felt truly at home in Estcots. Since then, I have previously been based in Year 5 and have really loved having a class to myself for a full academic year. I’ve been lucky to work with so many talented staff as part of Phase 3, and we have certainly challenged ourselves and our classes with some fantastic events and activities- the fashion show and African exhibition being two that particularly stand out!
