Early Years Reception

Miss Suzy Thurmott – Teacher of Class Elm


I have the great privilege of being lead of Reception and Nursery as well as being the Elm class teacher. I lead my wonderful team to ensure that our children's first year in school is full of exciting, real life learning opportunities that enables them to make great progress. I have been a teacher at Hampton Vale since September 2011 and think the children at our school are just brilliant! Every day they make me smile and laugh and impress me with their enthusiasm for learning. In my spare time I love to shop, sing, read and spend time with my partner, friends and family.

Mrs Claire Dainty – Teaching Assistant


I work as a Teaching Assistant and have worked at Hampton Vale since 2012.  After deciding to change my career I have been very lucky to find a career that I really enjoy. Seeing the children grow and develop as they process through the school is a real privilege. At home I spend my time rushing around taking my children to their activities, foster caring for Peterborough Cat Rescue and going to the gym. I also love travelling to new countries now that my children are older and look forward to going to more new places.
