Kirsty Cruttenden

Kirsty is a Teaching Assistant at Riverside Primary School. However, her links with Riverside began in 2010 when she enrolled as a volunteer at the Children’s Centre (which was then managed by the school) and became Vice Chair of the Advisory Board. When her eldest child began school at Riverside Kirsty was a founding member of FoRPS and also became a parent volunteer within the school. It was this experience which inspired Kirsty to fulfil her ambition to transfer her skills to the classroom. 

Kirsty’s youngest child is currently a student at Riverside with her eldest having moved onto RMGS.  

Before retraining as a Teaching Assistant, Kirsty gained a wealth of governance and educational expertise having held PA roles within The FA and a local secondary school. Kirsty welcomed the opportunity to become an Acadamy Committee member and utilise this experience to support the fantastic work of the school.
