Mrs Claire Knox


Hello, I am Mrs Claire Knox, Reception and Nursery Class Teacher.  I have worked within primary schools since 2010, primarily within the Foundation Phase and I qualified with PGCE and QTS in July 2020.  My aim is to help to develop the confidence and independence in each individual child to embrace their learning journey for life. With a background in art, I am keen to develop my role as lead teacher in Expressive Arts and help to develop a diverse and creative approach to teaching within our wonderful school community. 

Mrs Jo Jones

Teaching Assistant

My name is Joanne Jones and I have worked at Ysgol Bryn Collen for nearly 3 amazing years. I am a Teaching Assistant in Nursery and Reception classes, which I enjoy immensely.   I enjoy watching every child building in confidence and making new friends, from the first day they are with us.  We enjoy learning through play, which encourages imagination and interaction with classmates. I enjoy creating classroom displays to help encourage visual learning and make the classroom a welcoming environment. Bryn Collen has an amazing outdoor curriculum,  which is one of the many things I love about this school.
