Our Staff 2017-18

We strongly believe in the importance of building closely bonded relationships between children and teachers, and we consider ourselves very fortunate that our small staff and low teacher/pupil ratios allow us to do this. We find that our children happily adapt to different adults and situations from an early age.

A broad background within education allows our staff to apply their unique perspectives and expertise to support all children across the school.  Just as our children have different strengths, so do our teachers. Teachers are assigned to various subjects according to their individual strengths, interests and specialisms. The children are taught most subjects by their homeroom teacher, but also receive specialist teaching for other subjects such as Music, P.E. and Spanish. Coordinators oversee curriculum planning and ensure that continuity, progression and standards are in accordance with our Curriculum.
