Who’s Who

whos_whoWho's Who

Mr Procter is the Executive Headteacher of Chiddingly Primary School, East Hoathly Church of England Primary School and St. Mary the Virgin Church of England Primary School.

The school is led by Miss Lewis (Head of School) and Miss Purcell (Assistant Head of School) in Mr Procter's absence.

As well as the Headteacher there are four full-time teachers and a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) who works one day each week. There are also trained Teaching Assistants in all classes. In addition we have visiting staff for musical tuition.

Although children spend the majority of their time with their class teacher we feel it is important that they know and work with other members of staff. This helps the children to associate themselves with the school as a whole and also enables us to make the most of particular staff talents. We value the contribution made to the school by the non-teaching staff. These include our bursar, the cook and her assistant, the caretaker and the lunchtime mid-day supervisory assistants, some of whom are also Class Teaching Assistants.
