Hello, my name is Mrs Hairsine, I am joining the staff team at Green Hammerton as SENCO. I’m really looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you and your families. I had such a lovely time in January when I spent the day at interview and was very impressed by how friendly and welcoming you are. I will be working hard to ensure that everything continues to run smoothly, Miss Langley and l are working together to ensure that this happens.
I have a wide range of experience in different schools both big and small, most recently in a specialist SEMH school in Hampshire. I am a TouchBase mentor and PACE practitioner and my favourite things to do at school are making dens, big art projects and creative play. I have moved back up to Yorkshire with my husband, children and rabbits and soon we'll be welcoming a puppy! We’ve been living all over the country with the Royal Navy so we are glad to be settled in our home and starting new adventures in North Yorkshire. It will be a big change for us as in our last house we could see the sea from our sitting room! I’m a firm believer in play, creativity and listening. I love big walks, baking, going to the theatre and yoga.
