Carley - Upton Class Teacher
Carley Truelove. Class Teacher.
Hello, My name is Carley and I am the Class Teacher in Upton Class. I have had a long career supporting early years education, starting as a Nursery Nurse back in 1998.
I have been at Montacute since 2013, and in that time I have gained my HLTA Status, completed a Foundation Degree in Early Years Services and more recently my BA in Education.
Prior to this I worked at a Special Needs School as a Speech and Language Therapy Assistant, supporting communication and language development of 3 to 19 year old's for 8 years.
I have a passion for developing communication and play skills and am Montacute School's Intensive Interaction Coordinator, developing the approach across the classes and training colleagues. I am also Paediatric First Aid trained.
We have strong focus on the importance of play in Upton Class and believe that learning should be fun and engaging to build a love for attending school in the early years.
In my spare time I enjoy lots of family days out and long dog walks, as well as time out on our boat exploring our beautiful coastal surroundings.
