Jerushia Connolly - Inclusion Manager
I joined Glebe Primary school in September 2020 as Inclusion Manager and have been a fully qualified teacher since 1996. Over the years, I have worked in a variety of schools in many different roles, including being an assistant head in a Specialist setting for pupils from 4 – 19 with complex learning needs.
I am a fully qualified SENCo and have undertaken many extra courses in areas such as Dyslexia, ASD, Mental health and well-being, manual handling and therapeutic play to name a few. I feel proud to work at Glebe; the whole school community wants the best for all our pupils.
