Mrs. Kirsten Pounds Reception, Religious Education
Mrs. Samantha Moll Year 1, Assessment & Standards Leader, Literacy
I have worked in Years 1-6 at the Dassett, initially as a teaching assistant and now as a teacher for the past 8 years. I particularly enjoy teaching Year 1 as it is the transition from the EYFS to Key Stage 1, a key time where children develop the skills they will build on in later years. I have two children both at Kineton High School and in my spare time I like visiting the theatre, reading and travelling.
Mrs. Samantha Parkes Year 2, SENCO/Intervention Leader, NQT Mentor,
First Aider, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
During my time at The Dassett I have taught Years 1-5 at various times. I have enjoyed the uniqueness of each class and seeing how children's learning develops during their time with us. I feel really lucky to work at such a wonderful school. In my free time I enjoy playing and listening to music, reading and ringing the bells at Burton Dassett church.
Mrs Natalie Collen PE Curriculum and Inter-School Competition, PSHE
(On maternity Leave)
I particularly enjoy teaching English, as children glue together the rules that we cover through exciting topics and produce work they can be proud of.
P.E is a subject I also enjoy, as keeping fit and healthy makes us all feel great and we can have lots of fun building on our skills along the way.
In my spare time, I love nothing more than taking my scruffy little dog, Molly, for a brisk walk across the fields and spending quality time with family and friends.
Miss Rachael Williams Year 3/4 Science, Music and Student Mentor
This is my 6th year at the Dassett and I have previously taught Years 1 and 4 here. This year, I am really excited to be moving into Reception and starting our newest children on their school journeys. My favourite subject is Science and I love seeing children develop their curiosity about the world around them. Outside of school, I love to read, spend time with friends and travel. I also play the flute and piano in my spare time.
Mrs. Georgie Saunders Year 4/5
Mrs. Beth Hanna Year 6, Maths, ICT
This will be my fourth year at The Dassett and my third in Year 6. I can't wait to get started with my new class in a September and look forward to helping the prepare for secondary school. It is a very busy year with lots of exciting challenges for the children. Outside of school I love being in the great outdoors - climbing and hiking are particular favourites, as well as walking my dogs and swimming with my daughter.
