Neve Spicer

Neve is chief editor at We The Parents. She’s a firm believer in the ‘village to raise a child’ approach to parenting. For Neve, this means encouraging parents to share their stories and experiences in the hope of inspiring and bringing solace to others. As an editor she attempts to draw out personal wisdom from mothers and fathers, unearthing the learning they have reaped from all the giggles and niggles of raising a family.

Neve taught for seven years in various primary schools. Having seen firsthand how policy decisions can negatively affect whole-child learning, she began to use her passion for words to publicly advocate for more ‘free’ play in schools (and at home). Her work has been featured in numerous government, educational and charity sector publications, and she continues with the goal of amplifying the needs of children and influencing policymakers across the globe.
