Mrs Anne Davis - Senior Teaching Assistant (Year 1/2)

I have been working here since 2001, although I have been involved with school for a long time. My three sons all attended Broughton Primary school and I came in as a volunteer when my youngest started in 1996. I work in KS1 and spend the mornings in Class 3 with Mrs Lightfoot. In the afternoons I take individual children or small groups and work with them to improve their literacy skills. I am trained to deliver ELS, Cumbria Reading Intervention and Catch Up Literacy programmes.
