Donna Macdonald
In 2001 I began my career at Huntingdon Junior School working in year 3 as a Teaching Assistant. I went on to support pupils throughout key stage 2, in particular working with pupils with significant social, emotional and behavioural needs.My role within the school has evolved over the years and I currently co-ordinate the Midday Supervisors and work within the Inclusion Team as an Inclusion Co-ordinator. My role facilitates the opportunity to build relationships with the wider community, parents and pupils, hence it is varied, challenging and very rewarding.

I am a 1:1 teaching assistant in Year 4. I have 2 children aged 18 and 22 and have been involved with the school a long time, as an employee and a parent.  I started as a parent helper when my son and daughter were at school, I would come in and support with reading. When a job opportunity came up at the school I was thrilled and accepted without hesitation. I have been at the school 15 years now and within that time I have done various courses including Level 3 Teaching Assistant and Level 3 Elklan.

Teaching Assistant
Amy Henson
I first started my childcare career in a Nursery setting in the local area. I worked with children from 3 months to 5 years and became a Preschool Room Leader. During these 3 years I was able to gain lots of experience and skills. I had previously spent some time in a school setting volunteering and helping out in various classrooms leading me to realise that my heart was set on working with children of an older age – in a Primary School. I began volunteering here, at HPS and really enjoy all aspects of the setting. Since gaining employment at HPS I have learnt and gained lots, roll on the future at HPS!

After moving from Leeds I became involved with the Infant school as a parent helper. I really enjoyed working with the children and the environment and once a TA position became available I applied and got the post along with becoming a midday supervisor. Whilst working at the Infant school I studied at Huntingdon Regional collage to obtain my teaching assistant and BSL qualifications. After 10 years I still enjoy working with the children within all areas of the school.

My early career started in the Financial Sector where I had several roles for Nationwide Building Society before starting my family. After a complete change in direction professionally, I started working as a Teaching Assistant and Mid-day supervisor back in 2001 for Huntingdon Junior School (where I too came as a pupil!).  I have continued my role as a Teaching Assistant since the merger with the Infant School and now also work as part of the Admin team in the School Office.

I have been involved with Huntingdon Primary School since 2001, firstly I volunteered to help out in the classroom. I decided to enrol on a course at college and following this I applied for and was offered the role of a learning support assistant. I like the outdoors and as a result after becoming a learning support assistant I also was employed as a midday supervisor. My enthusiasm in supporting the pupils enabled me to start a breakfast club which I still love and enjoy running presently. Nowadays I am also really fortunate to be able to supervise the children during the lunchtime period as part of my role in games club.

In the October I was offered hours as a teaching assistant, which I gladly accepted. I have worked with children with a wide variety of different needs. I have been lucky to have met and to work alongside so many brilliant people over the years. The school merged into Huntingdon Primary and it is now a bigger and better place. I still enjoy walking through the doors every morning and wondering what the day will bring. I love being part of the H.P.S team.

Having previously worked in accounts, I started at Huntingdon Infants School on a voluntary basis in 2002. I worked in early years and then became a ‘Reading Buddy’ in years 1 and 2 .I continued until 2009 when I started working as a teaching assistant at Huntingdon Junior School just before the two schools became H.P.S. Whilst working at H.P.S, with the school’s support I have ben able to gain an NVQ. I love reading and think that children should be encouraged to read as much as possible as it aids progress right across the curriculum. I am very lucky because I really enjoy my job.

Before I became a teaching assistant, I used to work as Senior Library Assistant (Acquisitions), at the Squire Law Library, University of Cambridge. I was responsible for ordering all of the Library’s publications, from legal textbooks and periodicals, to all of the publications produced by the Government, such as Bills, White Papers and Statutory Instruments. It was a fascinating job, and I was lucky enough to meet many colourful characters from the world of law – barristers, professors, QC’s’ and Knights of the Realm!After a break to start my family, I began volunteering at Huntingdon Infant School. I was then lucky enough to be offered a job at the school from September 2006, doing what I loved best – reading! Since we amalgamated to become HPS, I have worked in most year groups and embarked on my own learning journey, acquiring new skills along the way! I enjoy the sense of family that we have here at HPS.
