Meet the Team

  • Becky Gibson

    Manager and Early Years Teacher

    Hi, I am an Early Years qualified teacher. I graduated in 2010 and taught in Key stage 1 in Haltwhistle for 5 years. I live in Barrasford with my husband and 2 children who attend the school and pre-school. I love the outdoors and going for walks/adventures and trips to the beach. I spent some time out of teaching while having my children but always knew I wanted to return.

    In 2021 an opportunity came up at the pre-school and I could not say no. Throughout 2021-2022 I gradually took over from Pat, the previous manager. I am a firm believer in allowing children to play and explore and not be afraid to try again when something doesn’t work or goes wrong.

    I wish to continue running the pre-school giving the children the best start with their learning journey.

    Hi, I’ve lived in Barrasford all my life and have been involved in childcare for the past 32 years as a mother, childminder, dinnertime helper at school, youth club leader, babysitter, pre-school assistant and now a grandmother.

    I came to Chollerton First school as a child as did both of my own children. I love reading, gardening and
    socialising with family and friends.
