Hello everybody


My name is Gemma Blake-Hatton and I work as class teacher with Mrs Purba and our amazing teaching assistant,  Mrs Mumford as part of the Owls 1 Reception and year 1 team.


I have over 15 years of teaching experience across ages 0-11 and I have three children of my own.

I am passionate about helping all children achieve their potential; academically, socially and creatively. I love teaching art and history subjects and have a secret! Before I became a teacher I once worked as an archaeologist finding old things in the soil!


I am also the special educational needs coordinator (SENCO) for the school. This role means that I support pupils, parents and teachers across the school to ensure that we are providing the best outcomes for our children on the special needs register.


My hobbies include running and gardening and of course looking after my children!

We look forward to welcoming you into our school, the little school with a big heart.
