Mayfield Church Of England Primary School

Nurturing relationships, inspiring excellence, achieving potential.


Our Staff



Currently there are seven teaching staff working in 7 classes.

Each member of staff, where appropriate, takes responsibility for one or more curriculum areas.

We are fortunate in having an experienced and dedicated team of teaching assistants. Their role is to support teaching and learning, both in the classroom and through withdrawal of small groups and occasionally working one to one. A number of them have specific responsibilities in supporting special needs children. All teaching assistants also undertake one or more sessions of midday supervision.

The office team deal efficiently and effectively with the administrative side of school life. They are particularly important in dealing with our existing parent body, visitors and new parents.


The staff are enthusiastic, hardworking and committed to raising achievement. Everyone is warm, friendly and supportive of colleagues.
