Key Stage Two - Year Four

Mrs Sam Polson – Teacher of Hawthorn Class


I am originally from a small sea-side village just outside of Middlesbrough in the North-East of England. I joined Hampton Vale Primary School in September 2013 and I have always felt like a valued member of the Hampton Vale family. Currently, I am the additional Year Four Hawthorn class teacher. When I am at home, I enjoy going for long walks in the country side with my dog, Roxy, and riding my horse, 'Horrid' Henry.  I have loved my time at Hampton Vale so far and look forward to being here for many years to come.

Miss Katy Gallagher – Teacher of Holly Class


I joined Hampton Vale in March 2015 after being Deputy Manager at a Nursery for 2 years. Prior to this, I trained at University in York for 3 years in Early Years Primary Education. I feel incredibly lucky to be part of such a fantastic team of staff and to have the pleasure of working with such wonderful children. In my spare time, I enjoy shopping, exercising and playing with my Chihuahua, Ted.
