What is Nursery Plus? The Nursery Plus Team work with nursery age children in settings across Mid-Devon, including our Foundation Unit. they work alongside staff and with children offering support for children who have some needs within the prime areas of learning.

 

Mrs Corinna Travers – Nursery Plus Teacher

My name is Corinna Travers and I started teaching at Wilcombe in the Foundation Unit 7 years ago.  I have since become the Nursery Plus teacher for Mid Devon so while I retain a base at Wilcombe (you can find me in room 5), I spend the majority of my time doing outreach work, supporting children in pre-school settings across Crediton, Tiverton and Cullompton areas. I am always pleased when I can join the children in the FU for some inreach work – The Foundation Unit is a happy and inspiring place and a model of good practice! I am an accredited Thrive Practitioner and I have run German Club and Cookery Club in the past; sadly, due to the nature of my work, I find little time to do this now.

461 Mrs Rebecca Main
Most know me as Becks and I work alongside Corinna as part of the Mid Devon Nursery Plus team (you can also find me in room 5!). I am based at Wilcombe but travel as an outreach service to other settings across mid Devon. I really enjoy my role here at Wilcombe; and although an outreach service – I still feel part of the school ‘family’ and love being part of such a great team of people. I’ve worked professionally with pre-school age children for six years and am really enjoying supporting pre-school children on an 1:1 basis across mid Devon.

Miss Tara Summers

I work alongside Corinna Travers as part of the Mid Devon Nursery Plus team. I am new to the team but I am already enjoying my role both within the Wilcombe Foundation Unit and Outreach. I have worked in childcare since I left school and have extensive experience of working with children with SEND. I enjoy being part of the team and have felt very welcome since starting.

Caretaker

Mr Graham Cossey

I have worked at Wilcombe for over 7 years.  My role in school is Caretaker.  However, Wilcombe is a team and we all get stuck in when the occasion calls! I now cut the grass, regularly participate in residential trips for schools across the Primary Academies Trust, carry out bicycle safety training, transport children in the minibus, run football club and also help out with set construction, sound and lighting at the Summer Production.  My job is so much more than just caretaking,  this is what makes it so enjoyable.

Cleaners

647 Mrs Samantha Cossey
I have worked at Wilcombe for 6 years.  I also help out at school events such as the Summer Fete and Wilcombe Wobbler.  I went to Wilcombe myself and so did all our three boys.  I like working here because you are part of a great team, the kids and staff are brilliant.
065  Mrs Hayley Eccles
I have been a cleaner at Wilcombe for a number of years and enjoy being part of the team. I am a keen potter and sometimes have come into school to do clay work with the children.
