Meet our staff



Head - Mrs Jacky Farnell

Deputy Head - Mrs Fiona Brooks

Classes are organised in 4 phases:


Foundation Stage led by Veena Sonpal

  Year 1 and 2 led by Sophie Barker 

    Year 3 and 4 led by Jennifer Moore

Year 5 and 6 led by Nikola Jackson


Each phase has a team of teachers and teaching assistants.


 In order to ensure consistency for the children, we do not use supply teachers as we feel it is important that the staff know the children and continuity is maintained even when the class teacher is not there.

PPA cover, cover when staff are out on courses, intervention groups and cover for absence (as far as is possible) and other unforseen absence is covered by a Higher Level Teaching Assistant or Teacher.


Staff are always happy to talk to parents, but it helps to make an appointment whenever possible.

You can also email the teacher via the office, using the teacher's name as the subject
