Dear Parents / Carers,
I am pleased to advise you of the teaching staff for each class for the academic year 2017/2018. The teachers will be teaching the following classes for 2017/2018:
- Reception Year [Oak] – Mrs. Shillito
- Year 1 [Hazel] – Mrs. Carpenter
- Year 1 [Ash] – Mrs. Lampard
- Year 2 [Willow] – Miss. Farey
- Year 3 [Beech] – Miss. Hutchins
- Year 4 [Rowan] – Mrs. Meynell
- Year 5 [Sycamore] – Mrs. Cocks
- Year 6 [Cherry] – Mr. Nashwalder
We are going to be using Teaching Assistant support differently in September. As we do not have enough Teaching Assistants to allocate one per class, we have designed a timetable where Teaching Assistants will be supporting different classes over the course of the week as well as carrying out other responsibilities such as providing interventions, teaching phonics groups and other support required to meet the needs of our children. It is intended that the Teaching Assistant’s support will maximise opportunities for all children and draw on their own strengths and skills.
Whilst Mrs. Meynell will be the class teacher in Year 4, she will continue to be the school’s SENCo. Mrs. Meynell will have set time out of the classroom each week to complete SENCo tasks and additional time when needed to ensure all children with additional needs are given the time and support they need.
The children will have the opportunity to formally meet and spend time with their new class teacher on the morning of Wednesday 12th July where we will be having a ‘Moving up’ Session in school. Similarly, we will be inviting you, the parents to visit your child(ren)’s new classroom and teacher in an open evening during Term 1 in September. We will confirm this date in the near future.
