I have worked in St Joseph's Nympsfield Out of School Club since September 2003 as a Play Assistant and took on the role of Play Leader in September 2021. I enjoy working with the children, taking on their ideas to ensure our planning meets their needs and interests. Every day is a different adventure!

Mrs Natalie Finn-Powers

Play Leader (Deputy)

I started in May 2018 as a bank staff position before taking on the Play Assistant Position increasing to three days a week by September 2021 and becoming Play Leader (Deputy). I have worked in the on-site Pre-school since September 2013 and have had good working relationships with St Joseph's Nympsfield Out of School Club before taking on the role. Having a background in Early Years and SEND, I try to make all activities inclusive for all children. It is also lovely to see the pre-schoolers we have taught grown up in Y6!

I started at St Joseph's Nympsfield Out of School Club in February 2024. I work in the after school club on a Wednesday and Thursday. This is a new challenge for me and I am enjoying working with children of varying ages.

Bank Staff

Bank staff are vital for the continued operation of St Joseph's Nympsfield Out of School Club (OOSC) as they provide cover for or supplement the OOSC's permanent staff. Typically bank staff cover sickness, absence and periods of fluctuation in child numbers.

At the OOSC we are very fortunate that two of our Bank Staff were previously permanent staff who have since taken retirement. We are very grateful to Mary Elmer and Brenda Smith for their continued support. In addition, Amia Stokes-Richardson is also a valued member of the Club's Bank Staff.
