Meet your Teachers

Hello, I am Miss Donnelly and I am a Foundation Stage teacher.

I love to read and do creative things and I get to do both of these things in Foundation Stage. We have so much fun! I have a little boy who is 2 years old and we love to read stories together and go for days out. We especially enjoy going to the seaside to build sandcastles and paddle in the sea. I can’t wait to meet you all so that we can have some fun together.

Hi! I’m Mrs Hartley. I teach in Foundation and absolutely love it.

We get to play, laugh and have fun every day. I have two little girls at home who are 5 and 2 years old so when I’m not at school I carry on playing and go on lots of adventures with my girls.

My favourite place to be is outside, you will often find me in my wellies ready for any weather! I also love sketching and reading. I can’t wait for you to join us in September. Let’s have a magical time together.

Hi, my name is Mrs Davis and I teach in Foundation.

I love to spend time with my family.  I like to go on lots of walks with my little boy to feed the ducks or splash in puddles!
I enjoy using my imagination and I can’t wait to have lots of tea parties in the home corner or be superheroes flying through the skies of Rotherham with you! We are going to have so much fun learning together!
