Paula Read


Paula has been Manager of Beenham Pre-School since 2014 but has worked in the setting since 2003. Paula says “I have seen lots of changes in my time here. Thankfully Early Years has moved away from worksheets and desks towards a far more child-led, play-based approach which is more successful and more fun for children and staff”. Paula is also the SENCO, Designated Safeguarding Lead, a Key Person and First Aider.

Paula is now a qualified ELSA  having completed her training in the first group of Early Years ELSAs in West Berkshire.

Lead and our ECAT ELLP (Early Language Lead Practitioner). Alison joined us as a 1:1 Support worker in 2015 and has since completed her Level 3 qualification and is now a Key Person and a First Aider. 





Lou is the newest member of our Team and is working with us as Bank Staff, offering cover for staff absence and also to enable other staff to undertake more training. Lou has been connected with our setting as a parent for a number of years and we are very happy to have her join us in this role.
