Who's Who

As a school, we encourage strong parental partnerships with our school staff.  Staff are available at the start and end of the school day to discuss any issues. Parents can first make contact with their child’s home group teacher who are always happy to help. Parents, who due to work or other commitments, do not get the opportunity to meet with their child's home group teacher on a regular basis in the playground are encouraged to e-mail the school or telephone to make a convenient appointment.


The following school staff are available as line managers for their phase:

Mrs A. Ekins - Phase 1 Leader (Nursery children)

Miss A. Northwood - Phase 2 Leader (Reception and Year 1 children)

Mr P. Andrews - Phase 3 Leader (Year 2 and Year 3 children)
