Welcome to Reception
Our Class Aims
In Chaffinch class we encourage children to be kind, to be independent and to try their best. Our aim is for children to learn through play, to be inquisitive about the world around them and to grow to be competent and resilient learners.
Meet our Team
Miss C Fryer-Saxby
I got into teaching around 10 years ago after having worked with children through various holiday and youth clubs. I loved how curious young minds were and wanted the chance to inspire children so that they could be the best that they can be. When I’m not thinking about how I could incorporate glitter into the days’ activities, I love nothing more than to spend time with my little girl or drink tea whilst watching Grey’s Anatomy!
Ms A Evans
I started working at Manor when my daughter was 11 months old (she’s now managing a branch of Marks and Spencer!). I have loved working at Manor as I have worked all over the school, even though I was initially employed to work in FS1. My passion is supporting special educational needs using interventions and specific teaching plans. Working with some very talented staff over the years has enabled me to gain valuable skills and
expertise. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and acting in plays.
Mrs T Slade
I have been a Teaching Assistant for over 20 years. I love supporting the children in their learning and enjoy watching each of their different personalities develop. I like to be creative and come up with a variety of activities that children can take part in to develop their skills and knowledge whilst having fun at the same time.
Mrs J Mackie
I started my career in childcare as a childminder which I did for 17 years before moving to Manor Primary 5 years ago as a volunteer. I then obtained my NVQ progressing to an Early Years Practitioner. I chose this path after my son was born and I realised the importance of providing children with a broad range of experiences and opportunities which were fun and engaging, crafting the children to be confident and independent
