Josephine Cross

I have been in teaching for 12 years now, predominantly in UKS2, and I have a real passion for this phase.

I am English lead at Prestbury, alongside Miss Townes, and I am currently leading a whole-school Reading for Pleasure project. I love reading children’s literature and enjoy sharing new authors and books that I have read with my class.

I have a little boy called Ruairi who has just turned one and he keeps me very busy at weekends! We live in Lyme Park and so spend a lot of time walking and visiting the Highland cows who also live there.

Let your light shine that people may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven
