    Molly has been a great addition to our team here at Malmesbury Park Primary School.  Molly has built good relationships with staff and children and is well respected.  She is knowledgeable about her subject (PE) and engages the children with enthusiasm.  Molly has been supportive and flexible in her approach as we have had to make several changes to manage the demands of the COVID restrictions. Molly has been a perfect match for our school and is proving to be a real asset to our team. We are looking forward to working with her throughout the year.
