Our Teaching Staff

Mrs Norris                                      Year 1 


We are delighted to have Mrs Norris on board in Year 1 this year. She is enjoying being a 'more permanent' member of staff and she is managing the transition of those year 1 children from Reception, brilliantly. 


Ms. Samantha Moll                   Year 3, Assessment & Standards Leader, Literacy - SLT, MFL


I have worked in Years 1-6 at the Dassett, initially as a teaching assistant and now as a teacher for over 10 years.  I have two children and a Cockapoo called Sidney and a cat called Toby. In my spare time I like visiting the theatre, reading and travelling.



Mrs. Samantha Parkes                  Year 4, SENCO/Intervention Leader, NQT Mentor,

                                          First Aider, Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead SLT, Art and DT


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                          Year 5 PE Curriculum and Inter-School Competition, PSHE 


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 R Science, Music and Student Mentor


This is my 7th year at the Dassett and I have previously taught Years 1,3 and4  here.  This year, I am really excited to be teaching 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 2 - RE Eco commitee

Mrs Saunders has joined us on a full-time basis now and is relishing the challenge of Year 2. 



Mrs. Beth Hanna                             Year 6, Maths, ICT


This will be my fifth year at The Dassett and my fourth in Year 6. I  look forward to helping the children 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.
