Our Staff

We have eleven classes in our school.  There are 3 classes of Year 3,  Year 4 and Year 6 children with 2 classes in Year 5.  All classes are mixed ability, however children may be grouped for particular aspects of their learning within their classroom to allow them to be supported and challenged within their learning journey. Children are supported within their class by their class teacher as well as our team of teaching assistants.  Children with more specific needs e.g. Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) and English as an Additional Language (EAL) will be supported through more focused individual or group work during the school day. 


In line with Government guidelines, all teachers receive 10% non-contact time in order to carry out Planning, Preparation and Assessment of pupil progress (PPA Time).  In order to maintain continuity for children, PPA time at Nyewood is carried out by established staff at the school by Teachers and Higher Level Teaching Assistants. 


All of our staff, whether directly supporting children in class or not, are dedicated to ensuring our children reach their full potential, feel safe and feel happy during their time at the school. If you wish to speak to any member of staff, please do not hesitate to contact them via the office or directly in person.
