Mrs Evans (Headteacher)
Mrs Evans joined the school in January 2006. She teaches Class 2 in the morning on Thursdays and Fridays.
We are a small class and I teach them English, Maths and Science. I also teach all the older children every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, and Class One on a Wednesday afternoon. That means she gets to teach all the children in the school which is lovely. The rest of Mrs Evans time is taken up with her role as headteacher. She says of her role "I love my job as no two days are ever the same and I work with some great people. It is a very happy school with a friendly family atmosphere".
