The Team

Amy Newman Chief Magpie

Before leaving teaching in 2016 to become a first-time mum to my little girl, I was an Assistant Head of a local primary school. I have been teaching across Key Stage 2 for 10 years and have loved my time as a primary school teacher. On returning from maternity leave, I decided I wanted to work in a PRU for secondary aged pupils who have with mental health needs. I’m loving this new, highly rewarding role.

However, Magpie Learning gives me the opportunity to continue to work with primary aged children and offer a childcare service that ties together my passion for learning and being creative, as well as offering parents an affordable service they can be confident in.

One of the best things about being a teacher is having the pleasure of watching children grow in confidence in their own ability through guiding them through the tough times and rejoicing in the triumphs, no matter how small they may seem!

I’m passionate about offering an environment where children feel free to create, explore and led their own learning in the knowledge that I’m there to guide them when they need me.

I have worked as a teaching assistant in the same local Primary school as Amy, for the last 20years. I have always worked in key stage 2, and worked along side Amy, for eight of those years. I have three wonderful children of my own, and have always lived in the Bromley area. 

When Amy told me about her exciting new venture, I jumped at the chance to help! I strongly believe that working with children is a privilege, and enjoy watching their inquisitive minds grow. I'm looking forward to many 'fun filled days'.

I have been teaching across Key Stage 2 for 10 years and have loved my time as a teacher. However, I have now decided to dedicate my experience to tutoring and supporting children, through home schooling, that can find school life a challenge. Magpie Learning gives me the opportunity to offer a childcare service that ties together my passion for learning and being creative, as well as offering parents an affordable service they can be confident in.
