Name: Miss Longmore
Job Role: Teaching Assistant in Foxes
Interests: Walking, Makaton, reading and learning French. 
How I will help you in school: I have a passion for nurturing pupils and inspiring them to learn in a positive, safe and secure learning environment. I feel it is important to be mindful of emotional support for children,  just as much as academic support. I believe that this is achieved by adopting a resilient growth mindset attitude and following our feelings through the zones of regulation. 
If I were a superhero my special power would be: Mind reading.  I could instantly know how children are feeling and why. This would help me guide the children through the zones of regulation and give them the emotional support they need. I would also be able to give super sonic hugs that would make children feel secure, supported, calm and centred.
