Norton Little Learners Staff

  • Miss Leah Powell

    Preschool Manager

    I started working in early years when my son was little as a childminders assistant and soon realised that I loved working with young children. From there I went on to become a childminder myself but still felt that there was so much to learn so I enrolled in university as a mature student to do a foundation degree in early childhood studies which I am currently completing. I have also managed a committee run playgroup in Abbeydale which has taught me a lot about how to work with parents and children together. I am very excited about being a part of the Little Learners at Norton School as I will love seeing how the children develop past the preschool years.

    In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my own two children, going on holiday and trying to relax when I do get a spare minute.

  • Miss Fionn Humphris

    Early Years Assistant

    Hello, my name is Fionn (but you can call me Fi!) I have just completed my HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant) and I am currently working in Little Learners every morning, and supporting a child 1:1 in reception every afternoon. I have worked in most classes throughout the school, but my favourite is definitely early years. Reception and pre-school are so much fun, always diverse and each day is different this is definitely where I feel most at home! Outside of school I enjoy spending time with friends and family, occasionally I will drive a digger or dumper for my dad! I love to sing and play my guitar and I enjoy exploring the countryside. You may also find me curled up with a good book and some white chocolate!!

  • Miss Lottie Cale

    Early Year Assistant

    Hello, I am Lottie and I have a level 2 qualification in Health and Social Care which I studied at Gloucester College. I started at Norton in October 2017 as a volunteer for work placement as part of my college course. I love that every day is a new challenge working with children and seeing them progress. I am excited to learn new things and watch the children develop throughout their time in Little Learners. Outside of school I spend my time with my family and friends and love travelling to different countries.
