Miss Jessica Chance Reception/Year 1,  Science, Early Years SENCO

I have recently joined The Dassett and teach Reception. I have a passion for Early Years and enjoy nurturing children in their first steps of education. In my free time I enjoy competing on my horses Sassy & Oliver and looking after my two very naughty cats!


Mrs Samantha Parkes Year 2  SENCO, Intervention Lead, NQT Mentor, First Aider, Designated Safeguarding Lead, SLT.

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 each child's learning develops over time with us. I feel lucky to work at such a wonderful school. In my free time I like playing and listening to music and ringing the bells at Burton Dassett Church.


Mrs Samantha Moll  Year 3/4  Assessment & Standards Leader, Maths, Designated Safeguarding Lead - 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, a cockapoo called Sidney and a cat called Toby. In my spare time I like visiting the theatre, reading and travelling.



Mrs Nicola Woollard Year 5, Art and Dt Lead

After 17 years as a Goldsmith, I decided to retrain as a primary school teacher so I could follow my passion for teaching and learning. I am continuing to improve my practice through studying toward an MA in Education. Outside of school I love to walk, read, cook, crochet and play board games with my husband and two children. We also have two dogs and two guinea pigs.



Mrs Beth Hanna  Year 6, English, ICT, Student Mentor, educational visits coordinator

This will be my seventh year at The Dassett and my sixth 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.


Mr Spencer Foyle Year 4, PE


I have been a primary school teacher since 2005.  (Prior to that, I worked in industry for ten years.)  Married with two children (aged 18 and 12), my hobbies include hiking, judo, yoga (as I age!), theatre and reading.  Education wise, I am interested in contributing to development of well-rounded,  confident, happy children.
