Hello, my name is Helen (Miss Paynter). I am the class teacher for Frogs class and I am looking forward to teaching you all in September. I have been at Willowcroft for a few years now and this will be my fourth year in Frogs Class. In my spare time I spend a lot of time drawing and painting in my mini studio at home and going for long walks with my dogs. I love spending lots of time outside and I can't wait to explore with you.




Hello, my name is Karen (Mrs Russell) and I live locally with my husband and dog called Alfie.

I have worked as a teaching assistant at Willowcroft now for a few years working in Caterpillars, Tadpoles, Frogs and Dragonflies. My hobbies are crafts and sewing and I love being outside either walking my dog or gardening. I look forward to welcoming you and your lovely children to Frogs in September.


Hello, my name is Amy (Mrs Peach) and I am going to be the class teacher for Dragonfly class.  This will be my third year in Dragonfly class and I am really looking forward to meeting everyone in September. We are going to have lots of fun together, learning about mini beasts, exploring the world around us, making fabulous creations and learning lots of new things.



Hello, my name is Alison (Mrs Harris). I have been a teaching assistant in reception for three years. I am looking forward to welcoming you all to Dragonfly class in September and helping you start your exciting journey at Willowcroft. 




Hello! My name is Kayleigh (Miss Ellis) and I have been a teaching assistant at Willowcroft School for three years. This year, I will be focusing specifically on speech and language interventions and I am looking forward to working with all the new children coming up into reception.


Here are a few photos of our classrooms.
