    Head of Early Years, Reception Teacher

    Clayton Burt

    I am a qualified Early Years Professional. I have been teaching Early Years for seven years in a variety of counties, including UK, China, Vietnam and Latvia. When I was in China I worked for Nord Anglia at BISS Pudong campus first as a Head of Year for Nursery and then as Deputy Head of Early Years.

    During that time, I lead the change from classroom-based teaching, to a free flow environment. This was a very exciting time and lead to many more learning opportunities for the children. I also developed the outdoor learning area for the Early Years and to do this I involved the children using a MOSAIC approach. This gave all the children a say in what they wanted in the outside area and what was important to them. The team worked hard with the children to get their opinions by doing learning walks using ipads, modelling the outside area, looking at photographs, catalogues,pictures of other schools and interviews. When all of the information was gathered, a designer came in and did a presentation to the children. This was a fantastic learning experience for the children and for all of the teachers involved. It also gave the children the opportunity to have a say in what was important to them, have their ideas listened to and be valued. Prior to teaching Early Years, I was PE teacher for five years teaching whole school PE.

    I have worked in both early years and primary school settings over the course of my twenty year teaching career. I have an Early Childhood degree from Canada, a Bachelor of Primary Education degree from Australia and a Masters of International Education from the United States.

    I have had the pleasure of spending most of my teaching years working in the United Arab Emirates educating young children from many different cultures and backgrounds. My husband, two daughters and I are looking forward to our first year in China and to being part of the BSB family.

    I joined the BSB family in 2013 working in Year 3 (SEN department) and then moved into the EYFS department - first as a Teddies teacher, then as a Nursery teacher and now as a Reception Teacher.

    Armed with a Degree in Chemistry; Diplomas in Textile designing and The Montessori Method, I started my teaching career nearly 10 years back working with children in the early years/kindergarten group.

    I can’t imagine a day that passes by without learning something new, and therefore I enjoy inculcating that sense of wonder, enjoyment and awe of learning something new in children and my love of arts has helped me to a large extent to achieve this.
