Davina Bullivant Position: Phase Leader, Reception Team

Davina originates from Australia although the bulk of her teaching experience comes from the last 12 years she spent working in London, England.  She successfully led the Early Years team in her previous school and has a great deal of experience effectively delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. With a Bachelor of Education, specialising in Early Childhood Education, Davina has spent her career working with children from birth to 8 years olds although she has predominantly focused on the care and education of 3 to 5 year olds. Davina has worked extensively with children from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.  She believes that we never stop learning in life, and that we can all learn from one another.  Davina also values the importance of working together with parents in order to support children’s development, progress and achievement. “I am passionate about the early years, seeing this stage of a child’s life as a critical time to develop the foundations of all future learning.   I believe in planning lessons and activities around children’s interests and abilities, in order to support, engage and motivate learners.  I love art, travelling and learning about new cultures and enjoy my role with SJIIM.”
