Mrs Miranda Cummings – Assistant Head (Early Years and Key Stage One)

 

I joined Hampton Vale Primary School in Spring 2014 after relocating from Warwickshire where I spent eight years teaching and leading in Key Stage One and the Early Years. I love teaching and helping children to reach their full potential. When I am at home, I like cooking, reading and walks in the park.

Miss Suzy Thurmott – Early Years Key Stage Leader

 

I have the great privilege of being Head of Reception 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.
