Harriet Corrighan

Harriet_Corrighan

Year 1 Lime Teacher

BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS, Edge Hill University

After completing her NQT year Harriet spent five successful and happy years as a Primary teacher in the North East of England. During this time she was part of the school’s Senior Leadership Team as the Curriculum Coordinator, International Links Coordinator and Maths Coordinator. 

In 2016 Harriet moved to Budapest to work internationally. Over the next three years she worked in a British School as a Year 1 class teacher and subsequently the Key Stage One Coordinator. She particularly enjoyed spending this time developing her knowledge of teaching students with EAL needs, creatively teaching phonics and initial reading skills to the youngest pupils.  

Harriet’s educational ethos is based upon promoting independence alongside a growth mindset. She believes this is vital, particularly in the first few years of a child’s education journey as they form the foundations of learning. She believes that encouraging students to make their own connections through exploration in a safe, but challenging environment can allow them to become ambitious learners as they take ownership over their own learning and achieve their full potential.

In her spare time Harriet has been developing her running skills and in the past year has completed 10 km races and a half marathon too. She enjoys visiting art galleries and going on camping trips. She is currently completing an MA course in ‘Children’s Literature’, an area which she is passionate about exploring further.
