Mrs Lizzie Cattermole

Year 2 teacher and Lower Phase leader

Hello, I am Mrs Cattermole and I am class teacher for Whales class.
I am very excited to be starting a new adventure in year 2 after spending 5 years in Year 1. I have been teaching for 16 years and taught from EYFS through to year 5. I really enjoy developing and nurturing children's ideas/interests and supporting children to become independent learners. I love nature and particularly enjoy cycling and setting off on new challenges.

Miss Viki Killeen

Dolphins Class Teacher

After several years teaching in Key Stage 2, I am so excited to be making my return to Key Stage 1 and Year 2 as one of Dolphins class teachers. I will be working in Dolphins class on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and I cannot wait to dive straight in to learning with you all. I love to see children thriving as independent learners and giving them opportunities to develop their curiosity and love for learning.

Mrs Charlotte Ross

Dolphins Class Teacher

Hello to you, I'm Mrs Ross and I teach Dolphins class on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I've taught at this school for many years now. I've taught over in KS2 and in Early Years but I'm looking forward to the new challenge ahead in Year 2. You'll often find me in our Art Area getting creative or investigating scientific questions in our Topic Area. I can't wait to dive into learning with you all this year!
