Simon Batchelor

Since graduating 4 years ago from Bath Spa University, with a degree in Performing Arts, Simon has worked as an actor and drama facilitator for a variety of educational theatre companies across the UK.

Simon’s experience has ranged from working with young people in raising awareness of domestic abuse, performing a play teaching basic French to primary schools across the UK and taking children with special needs on an interactive multisensory adventure.

He has a passion for working with young people and wants to help them grow as individuals, opening their minds to new challenges so they can succeed in their achievements.

Simon is trained in Helicopter Stories: Letting Imagination Fly as a Level 2 - Helicopter Deliverer. This means that Simon is trained to team teach with early years practitioners in the classroom, introduce and deliver weekly helicopter sessions in-class, encourage practitioners, reflect on the practice and feed back their observations.
