We are very lucky to have such a talented and committed teaching team and your child will continue to thrive in whichever class they are in from September 2019.
Miss Patchett will be increasing her teaching commitment from September and we will also be welcoming Miss Ellie Fisher to support the key stage 1 teaching team.
Miss Evans’ contract at Eastnor will come to an end in July; we are very pleased to say she has secured a permanent position at Leominster Primary School. We will all miss her and we wish her every success for the future.
As the school continues to flourish and thrive, the Governors and I recognise that some classes have grown in number. However, staffing across school will continue to be adjusted to ensure all pupils get the full 'Eastnor learning experience'. We will be appointing an additional teaching assistant next week who will primarily work with Miss Clark and Mrs Tart to support teaching and learning in key stage 2.
Therefore, the teaching structure for September will be as follows.
Class 1 - Reception Teacher: Miss Rachel Davies
Supported by: Mrs Louise Layton
Class 2 - Year 1 & 2 Teacher: Miss Rachel Patchett
Supported by: Miss Ellie Fisher and Mrs Louise Layton
Class 3 - Year 3 & 4 Teacher: Mrs Sarah Tart
Supported by: Mrs Jill Scull, Mrs Anita Farnell and Newly Appointed Teaching Assistant
Class 4 - Year 5 & 6 Teacher: Miss Anita Clark
Supported by: Mrs Angela Jones and Newly Appointed Teaching Assistant
PPA Teacher: Mrs Nicola Driscoll
Specialist PE Teachers: Mrs Kate Dawe and Mr Elliot Bees
Specialist Music Teacher: Mrs Kate Cheetham
The staffing structure will ensure that the ratio of teachers/support staff to children remains very high and we are sure that every child in school will continue to flourish next year.
