Miss Chloe Weaver Teacher

My name is Chloe and I am a class teacher in nursery. I have worked at E-ACT Blackley Academy for three years both in reception and in nursery and I love seeing the beginning of a child’s school journey and getting to know their families. I specialised in Early Years education in my postgraduate teaching degree and I have an undergraduate degree in geography.

Mrs Leanne Cornes Mrs Leanne Cornes Teaching Assistant

I gained my national diploma in early years in 2002 and have worked in schools ever since. I have worked at E-ACT Blackley Academy since it opened in 2012 and also worked at the school when it was Victoria Avenue primary school since 2006. In my ten years working in Blackley I have got to know children and families very well which is a real privilege. I particularly enjoy working in early years as I feel it’s so important to give very young children great experiences to help to create a positive attitude towards learning and school life.
