26th November 2021

This week you are treated to not 1 but 3 welcome messages from visiting students from Newman University who are all training to be teachers.


Hello all, my name is Mr Javid,

I’ve been here at St. Clement’s in year 1 for 6 weeks now and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I love being around the children and the teachers and seeing how they go about their day to day lives. I’ve learnt so much in these past 6 weeks and that’s all thanks to the teachers and staff in the school as they are all welcoming and easy to talk to. It has also been rewarding working with the children and getting to see their progress daily. It means a lot because you know you are doing something right and makes you want to achieve more. Hopefully one day I’ll be as successful as the teachers in St. Clement’s


Hello everyone, my name is Miss Akhtar

I have been working here for 6 weeks and will be until the end of term. I’ve had the pleasure of working with the wonderful year 1 class and have really loved getting to know them.  The staff are so welcoming and knowledgeable, and I have enjoyed every opportunity I have had so at St. Clement’s. Once again thank you for all the support and making my experience more enjoyable.

Don't forget to say hello if you see me around!



Hello everyone, my name is Mr Simmonds.

I've had the utmost pleasure of working here at St. Clements for just over a month now, learning from and closely supporting Year Six. This is my first school placement, and honestly, I couldn't have asked for a more rewarding experience. All the staff and children across the school have been extremely welcoming and have displayed nothing but positive attitudes towards me, but more importantly, their work. I hope to continue developing my career as a teacher by supporting the children to the best of my abilities and if you see me around school in the last three weeks (and haven't already), please don't hesitate to say hello!
