Mrs Crawforth Head Teacher & Foundation Stage Teacher

I’m Sam Crawforth and have worked at Blackshaw Moor First School since January 1996. I am the Headteacher and I teach in the Foundation Stage class which combines nursery and reception children. Nursery children attend part time and reception children are full time. I really enjoy working with this age range as the children grow and learn so enthusiastically. I am the Foundation Stage Coordinator for the school and in addition to this, I am also the coordinator for Design and Technology, Geography, Gifted and Talented children and maths and take the lead role in the teaching of Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL).
