Parents’ Voice:

Year 1


The brilliant Badgers are taught by Mrs Loaring (Mon- Weds) and the lovely Mrs. Ellis (Thurs- Fri) and their creative TA  Miss Pople.  We are very lucky to have a view of our Pashley farm from our classroom and often have the Pashley chickens join us for our fun Math’s lessons. Both class teachers love taking their children out to the woodlands to explore our beautiful learning environment.
Badgers class fact:
The Badgers love their weekly P.E sessions and are often found enjoying a very energetic P.E lesson with Mrs Loaring. They are a kind and caring class who always work together as a strong team. They love to care and look after our class mascots, Betty and Boris too!


Mr MacInnes teaches the Foxes class this year, he is supported by Mrs Favell.

Mr MacInnes works in Year 1 and is a wonderful and caring teacher who loves all animals, especially birds. He really enjoys taking the children up into the woods or out on the allotment to explore the nature around us at Pashley. His excellent knowledge and passion shines through and inspires the children. He really enjoys football (watching Brighton – my playing days are long behind me!), and he also loves travelling to find exciting and unusual corners of the world. He once went out to teach in Bhutan and even took his friend ‘Joe Crow!’

Class Fact:

“My Foxes class are super-duper mathematicians and love a challenge. We also have a pet crow in our class called Joe who needs a lot of teaching. Fortunately, the Foxes are pretty good at doing that!”


Moles class is taught by Miss Dyer (head of Year One) and supported by the wonderful Mrs Burdett. The class overlooks the woodlands and the back entrance opens to our amazing Pashley Farm.
Class fact:
The Magnificent Moles love a good brain break and dance and anything out door is right up their street! The class are supported by their favourite friend Marty. Marty will choose a special Mole to go home with at the end of every school day.
