Meet the teacher

In September 2016, we were thrilled to appoint Victoria Burton as our Nursery Teacher and Head of Early Years. Ms Burton has transformed Ark Swift’s Nursery to create an engaging learning environment where children are independent learners. Our team of highly skilled key workers, led by Ms Burton, support the children in every aspect of the school day. This is reflected in the high attainment this year. Children are happy and motivated to come to school every day because of the safe and nurturing environment we provide.

Ms Burton joined Ark Swift from Ark Oval Primary Academy in Croydon, where she taught for three years. In her career, she has taught both Reception and Nursery classes, and is a passionate Early Years practitioner. This background has given her a deep knowledge and understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.

Ms Burton is currently undertaking the National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML), which supports the progression of Middle Leaders within Ark. She has used her experience to further develop the Early Years team.
