Hi my name is Claire Clarke and I work in the school office. I work 4 days a week, Monday to Thursday. I have worked at Park Grove since September 2006 and in that time have seen the reception children grow up throughout the school, leaving to go to their secondary schools, its fabulous seeing them all grow and change over the years, although I always find ‘leavers assembly’ quite emotional, saying goodbye to pupils and parents.
I enjoy the variation that a school office brings; every day has its different challenges and rewards. I love seeing the children when they come for the register in the morning, usually with a ‘good morning Mrs Clarke’ and a smile, and sometimes a funny story to tell!
I am married and have 2 children, a son and a daughter and we have a cocker spaniel called Murphy. In my spare time I enjoy going to the cinema and theatre, I like listening to music and enjoy going to concerts (although taking my daughter to see some of the concerts she likes makes me feel very old!!). Most of all though I love to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends.
