Pre-School Team

Ms. Lisa Mumford

I have been a Pre-school Manager for 9 years within the Academy Cluster and joined the St. Loys team recently.

I am a Level 3 Qualified Practitioner in Early Years and hold a Paediatric First Aid qualification.

I am passionate about the Early Years and put children’s learning through play at the centre of our provision at St Loys Pre-school. We are fortunate to be able to utilise wonderful outdoor spaces in support of children learning and exploration outdoors and we make the most of sharing learning with the main school and joining in with the wider school family.

Mrs Allison Beesinger

Pre-school Practitioner

My journey to St. Loys began many years ago as a volunteer in Reception Class having relocated from America to the village with my family.

I have a background of working with young children and have 2 children who attend St Loys.

My passions for early years education include supporting children’s learning through song and dance and I have recently gained a qualification in teaching children’s Yoga. We now have a weekly opportunity to practise Yoga at Pre-school and the children enjoy this greatly.

    Mrs Katrina Leahy

Pre-school Practitioner

I first became part of the St. Loys family as a parent with children attending the school before joining the Pre-school team as a volunteer and now as a member of staff.

I have recently gained a CACHE qualification and am First Aid qualified.

I am interested in outdoor learning and enjoy taking our Pre-schoolers to the allotment just outside our school where we learn how to take care of plants and grow our own vegetables.
