Mr Thurgood

Hello! My name is Mr Thurgood and I teach Redwood class.  I am in charge of Computing across the school, which I find is a really exciting subject!

I graduated from Coventry University with a BA Honours Sociology degree and then after a year out went on to study for my PGCE, starting my first teaching post in Basildon.  I moved to Harlow from Chelmsford and I have been working at Pear Tree Mead since 2016.

I aim to provide a varied and exciting learning environment in which children feel that they are safe to learn through hard work and trying new things.  I expect children to be honest, hardworking and to develop a growth mindset where they are not afraid to make mistakes and learn from them.  I am looking forward to the rest of the year with Redwood class and to meeting and working closely with parents.

If there is anything you need from me, please feel free to speak to me.
