Little Bears Staff


Mrs McIntosh

As Headteacher, I am very proud of our school and our Nursery, it is a privilege to be part of such a fantastic community. The staff at this school work extremely hard to provide the children with fantastic learning opportunities which will help them reach their potential. All the staff at Brierley make a difference.

Miss Heaton

Hi, I’m Miss Heaton and I am the Reception teacher here at Brierley. I completed my teacher training at Keele University and specialised in Early Years. I love to make learning creative, fun and engaging. Travelling and visiting new places are my favourite things to do. I have been to Costa Rica and saw some amazing animals and plants! I love being in the outdoors and listening to music.

Miss Dunn

My name is Miss Dunn and I am the Nursery teacher here at Brierley. My favourite time of the day is story time as there is nothing better than getting lost in a book. A book that I love to read is ‘Aliens Love Underpants’. My favourite nursery to sing is 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star' and I love to end the school day with this!

In my spare time I love walking my dog, Harry - he is a very energetic Spaniel who I can never tire out!

Miss Potter

My name is Miss Potter, but many of the children know me as Jenna! I’m quite a familiar face around the school as all my older children have attended Brierley and my 3 youngest children come here.

I am very excited to be working as part of the EYFS team. As well as being a fun, friendly face around the classroom, a part of my job is to make sure all the children are safe, happy and having lots of fun during their learning activities.

Outside of school, I really enjoy spending time with my family and going for days out together. We also have a lovely little dog called Ted, who sometimes can be very grumpy!

Hi, my name is Mrs Begum and I am delighted to have joined the Brierley family as a teaching assistant. I am level 3 qualified and have worked with children for over 8 years. I like to spend my spare time with my 2 boys, mostly cuddling and cosying up on the sofa for a family movie. I love travelling and trying our Oriental food. I have travelled to Dubai, Bali, Malasia, Africa and many more countries. In my bucket list of places, I would love to visit America next. I am known as the 'unicorn lady' by my family because of my love for unicorns. They are just magical.

Miss Baker – School Admin Assistant

I deal with all the Little Bears paperwork. I am the person on the other end of the phone when you ring the school. I know that starting nursery can be a worrying time for parents and we all do what we can to make sure that both children and parents settle in as quickly as possible.
I have two children who keep me busy and at home we have two rabbits. My favourite part of my job is when it is leading up to Christmas and we have lots of things going on for the children, such as visiting the panto, Christmas plays and Christmas parties, the children get so excited which is lovely to see.

Mid-day Team:

If your child attends full days you will get to know some of our mid day team: John Stephenson, Wendy Brereton ,Vicky Garratt, Samantha Mellor & Lisa Boon

The mid-day team are a happy, active crew – football, rounders, skipping and team games to name just a few of the activities you may see them participating in over lunchtime. All have, or have had members of their family at Brierley.
