My name is Claire Haines and I have worked at Bretforton as a teaching assistant since June 2012. Before I became a teaching assistant I was a swimming instructor. 


I enjoy working with children because it is rewarding when a child manages to achieve an activity they have been struggling to complete.

Jane Neal Teaching Assistant

Jane Neal Teaching Assistant  1

Hello, I'm Jane Neal. I joined the staff at Bretforton First School in 2007, I am a teaching assistant and occasional supply teacher. I get a lot of satisfaction helping children learn new skills and watching their confidence grow.


I love the outdoors and am interested in Woodlore, Bushcraft and wildlife - I am able to make use of these interests by leading Forest sessions for Class 1 and acting as joint Eco Co-ordinator for our successful Eco Committee. I enjoy the variety of school life (there is never a dull moment) and since Drama is another of my loves, the Christmas Play and all that it entails, is one of my favourite school occasions.


In my spare time I enjoy being with my family, messing about in the garden, listening to rock and heavy metal and going to festivals and concerts when I can. When the weather is fine I love going out with my husband on our motorbike.
