Welcome to Year 1


Our teachers in Year 1 are Mrs Russell, Mrs Shaikh and Mrs Grilli.  Our amazing Teaching Assistants are Ms Lambat, Mrs Patel and Mrs Riley. 

We welcome all forms of communication as we fully appreciate how busy your days are. If you miss us at the start and end of the school day, we can be contacted via the school office or on dojo.

The relationship between home and school is a crucial aspect of your child’s educational journey, so we send updates weekly on dojo, letters and text messages to keep you fully informed.  We also fully appreciate your support with weekly reading books and ask that you listen to them read regularly at home and ensure their books are brought to school every day. 

In Year 1 we continue to deliver the EYFS curriculum for those children still working at that level as well as teaching the National Curriculum for those who are ready. We believe in developing the individual child and so this involves supporting their strengths and nurturing all other aspects so that the children leave the Year 1 as confident, independent learners ready for the next challenges in Year 2.

PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure children come to school in their school PE kits on these days. Also, please ensure earrings are not worn on these days.
