Meet the team

Our class teachers are Ruth Appleton and Hayley Wignall and our teaching assistant is Sharon Ockenden.

Learning bags and library

Don't forget to bring your learning bag every day! 

The children can change their books regularly during daily Guided Reading sessions. Please comment on their reading in their home/school reading diary.    

We also visit the school library on Wednesday afternoons, and children can change library books to take home. 

Please read with your child as often as you can.

Class assemblies

Each term, parents and carers are welcome to come to the hall and see a class assembly. We call these assemblies '10 minutes of fame!' They are not intended to be polished performances, just a little window into what children have been learning about. 

If you would like to know when your child's class assembly is, please look at the school newsletter which goes out every fortnight.


In Year 2, children receive at least one certificate per term for their achievements. 


From Year 1 upwards, children receive a home-school learning grid every two weeks. There is more information about this here. From Year 2 upwards, there is also online Sumdog homework. If your child has difficulty accessing this, there is a drop in every Wednesday before school. You can find an appliction form at the very bottom of this page.

Reading with your child is the most valuable way that you can support their learning - we cannot overemphasise this!
