Welcome to Early Years! We are the youngest part of the school and we have lots of fun whilst we learn! We are a Nursery and Reception unit where we work closely together, following an emergent curriculum that is based around the interests of the wonderful children within our unit.

Early Years can be the child’s first experience of the wider world, outside of the family home. It is therefore essential that this experience is varied, rich and of the highest quality to ensure that strong foundations are built to enable our children to progress through life successfully. Miss Dixon is the classteacher and Mrs Bell and Mrs Hodgkinson work in the unit as teaching assistants.

Please see the powerpoint presentation and leaflet below that gives more information on starting to help your children read and write.


Class Two is made up of our Y1 and 2 pupils. Mrs Alison Birkett is the classteacher and Jill Tarn works as the senior teaching assistant for three days a week. We have exciting times of learning with theme days such as our open museum, pizza delivery service or 'curiosity and fossil hunting' mornings.

Class Three is where our Y3 and 4 pupils

learn. Mr Ellison is the classteacher and Mrs Hodgkinson works as the teaching assistant to support learning. Mrs Hodgson teaches Science on a Tuesday. This years’ curriculum is particularly wide and varied covering the engaging topics of Fabulous Fashions, Rainforests & Volcanoes, a step back in time to examine the Stone Age to Iron Age as well as local history study of Long Marton School. Finally the children will gain a thorough understanding of where their food actually comes from besides the local supermarket!

Class Four is where some of our Y4 pupils and all our Y5 and Y6s work, with a brilliant view out of the window across the Eden Valley to Blencathra. Mr Davis is the class teacher and Mrs Hodgkinson is the teaching assistant who supports the learning. Mrs Hodgson teaches science. The children take their responsibilities as the senior children in school seriously, but also begin to look forward to secondary school. The rest of the school visited recently to look at the animal enclosures made in Design Technology.
