The teachers in the Nursery are Mrs Williams (the Early Years Foundation Stage Leader), Mrs Brine and Mrs Borton.




Hello, I’m Mrs Williams and I joined St Matthew’s as Foundation Stage Leader.  In my view, the Foundation Stage is one of the most important first steps in a child’s education.  It is a privilege to work as part of a fantasticFoundation Stage team and work alongside supportive parents and their incredible children.  A few years ago, I introduced Book Share Friday, a time for parents and children to share in the wonderful world of books.  It has been a great way to start on the road to reading!




Hello, I’m Mrs Brine and I teach in the nursery. I have been teaching at St Matthew’s since the year 2000.

During my time at the school I have seen it develop in so many wonderful ways. I have had the privilege of seeing the children grow from the day they start school to the day they leave and continue their learning at secondary school. Over the last few years I have enjoyed developing the outdoor area in the nursery as well as supporting the SEN children and their additional needs.




Hello, I'm Mrs Borton and I have joined the nursery team this year!







Hello, my name is Mrs Joyce and I help to teach children in the nursery. I have been at St Matthew's for many years and still love to play and learn with such a lovely age group. My favourite colour is yellow. Out of school, I like to go on walks and go to the theatre, I also enjoy sailing.




Hello, I'm Miss Miren and I have worked in Nursery for 6 years. I enjoy supporting children with their language development.
