Reception - Mrs Sumner 2023 - 2024

Mrs Sumner

I am Mrs Sumner and I teach Reception with Mrs Stewart. I am also our school's SENDCO, Mental Health Leader and Science Leader. I started teaching at Northway in 2008 after completing my teaching practice at Edge Hill University. I can still remember the first day I came to Northway for a tour of the school and I was made to feel so welcome by all of the staff and children. There is always such a lovely, positive and happy atmosphere at Northway. In our classroom, we will have lots of fun and I am excited to take the children on a fantastic learning journey!

In the first half of the Autumn term, we will be carrying out small activities to gather a baseline for each child. For more information about national baselines assessments in Reception click on the link below.
