We are delighted to share our class structure for next year with you. We hope that your child will be excitied to tell you all about this after spending time in their new classes today, where they had the opportunity to meet their new class teacher and be in their new classroom.
Our Nursery class will be led by Mrs Phillips and we will continue to offer 30 hours. Please register your interest, via the school office, at your earliest convenience as we’re getting close to being full and may need to operate a waiting list.
This year, due to pupil numbers, we have had to operate mixed aged classes in Reception and Key stage 1. Mrs Land, our EYFS Team Leader, will be leading our Reception and Year 1 class. Similarly, due to numbers once again, we are also running a mixed Year 1 and 2 class led by Mrs Hooper, our Key Stage 1 Leader and Maths co-ordinator. We believe that this mixed class structure will enable both teams to meet the needs of individuals, as we have retained a high level of Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) and Teaching Assistant (TA) support. In each class, we are committed to ensuring that each child experiences their respective age-appropriate curriculum.
Our Year 3 class is led by Miss Aquilina.
In Year 4, Mrs Iley will continue to teach three days per week and she will be joined by Mrs Shepherd for two days a week, who also teaches at Woodbury Salterton CE Primary.
Miss Etheridge, who is an experienced teacher, will lead in Year 5 and will be supported by Mr Harvey (one day a week) and Mrs Cambridge for literacy support each day. HLTA support will be provided by Mrs Dickinson.
Our Year 6 class will be led by Mr Thomas which will ensure the best possible start to their year 6.
In addition, Mrs Padbury, our Head of Learning, will be covering PPA support in Key Stage 2. Mrs Tweedy remains our SENCo one day a week, supported by Mrs Bradbury, our Assistant SENCo. Mr Nelmes, our Executive Headteacher, will continue to work between both schools.
Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the staff if you have any further questions. We are sure that next year will be another successful one where we continue work in partnership with parents to promote the very best outcomes for the children.
