Meet our Team

The greatest resource the school has in meeting the needs of our children is adults. It is the daily interactions between adults and children which have the most impact on learning both academically and personally. We aim for the staff team to work dynamically in order to strive for the best outcomes for the pupils of New Marston Primary School.

Each class has one full-time equivalent teacher but there are several teaching assistants (TAs) who support children throughout the day. The partnership of teachers and TAs is key in supporting children’s progress within lessons; together they will teach, guide and support classes/groups throughout the whole school day. In addition to our regular staff, depending on additional local or national funding, further adults may be appointed on a short term basis to support specific groups of children.
