A little bit about the adults in Leopard class:


We are very lucky to have two experienced teachers sharing Leopard Class, and an experienced HLTA all week!


Monday - alternate Wednesdays

Miss Heppner



Alternate Wednesdays - Friday

Mrs Prideaux

I am very much looking forward to teaching Year 1  again this year and am very excited to make sure our learning in Year 1 is fun and full of new experiences!


I have been teaching at Barley Close for a very long time (16 years!) and have even been teaching a little longer than that! oh dear that makes me sound very old! 


When I'm not at school I am busy looking after my 3 children and I like keeping myself fit and healthy by exercising and running! 


Please remember that I'm always available for you to ask questions and keep you informed of your child's day. Please come and see me at the door or you can contact me via Class Dojo and I will reply to your message as soon as possible.


Miss Rowley

Miss Rowley is our HLTA (Higher Level Teaching assistant) in Leopard Class. Miss Rowley has worked at Barley Close for 18 years and so has a wealth of experience and techniques to keep learning fun and engaging. When Miss Heppner and Mrs Prideaux have their PPA time, Mrs Rowley will take the class. Mrs Rowley will work in Leopard Class every morning and  in both Year 1 classes during the afternoons.  


When Miss Rowley is not at school, she enjoys going for long walks and photography, as well as spending time with her growing family - Miss Rowley now has two grandchildren.
