I am Emma Bailey and I have been teaching Year 1 at West Rise since I joined in 2017. I love this age group, their enthusiasm and natural curiosity for learning. It is such a pleasure to be a part of their journey through the school, watching them develop and learn in such a nurturing and safe environment.
I have taught both KS1 and KS2 in and around Kent and East Sussex. In addition to this, I spent a number of years living in South East Asia, with some time spent teaching in a large international school.
West Rise truly has ‘wellbeing’ at its core. Every child is nurtured and valued for the individual they are and the one they will become.
My name is Emily Ellis and I have been teaching at West Rise since 2008. I feel lucky to be part of such a supportive team. I am also Teacher Governor, a role I find very rewarding.
I live in Hastings with my husband and three children. Joshua, who has special needs, Lottie and Sam- as you can imagine they keep me very busy!
