Teaching Assistants

Our teaching assistants are well trained and either work in a support role in class or lead 1:1 or small group sessions.  They are a talented group and are able to provide class cover for meetings and training. 

We have some lovely ladies to look after everyone at lunch time: Mrs Cooke (honestly!), Mrs Seymour, Mrs Nicholls, Miss Grove, Mrs Perkins, Mrs Elliott, Mrs Prosser and Mrs Lima-Smith. 

Nursery:

Our Nursery is managed daily by Mrs Kate Drew and ably assisted by Mrs Sara Steele, Miss Jessica Strachan, Mrs Charlotte Randall and Miss Emma Taylor.  Currently, as Miss Strachan is on maternity leave, Miss Kelly Ballard and Mrs Lianne Gentle support our staft team.  The Nursery is open the same times as the school, from 8.30am to 3pm daily.  We have a range of documents for the nursery which serve the youngest members of our school.  Please see our Nursery page for further detail about our Nursery. 

Office Staff:

In the office you will find our School Business Manager, Mrs Emma Cowley, and Mrs Wendy Wiggett who is our finance secretary.  Please contact us on 01386830462 or use the school office email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Cleaning and Lunchtime staff:

Our school is looked after and cleaned by Mrs Yvonne Cooke, Mrs Annie Seymour and Miss Jane Grove.

Friends and Volunteers

We have a willing and loyal group of parents (and grandparents!) who support our school as volunteers, with reading 1-1 and in groups, with art or drama activities or helping to put together Christmas parties or a masked ball for fun and fundraising.  A more organised group, Friends of Honeybourne, is run by a super group of willing parents who give up their time to put on social and fund raising events to support our school.   Our most recent project was to provide the school with 30 new Chrome Books, to complement our ICT programme!  We are always looking for new members to help and support so please let us know if you are interested.
