Welcome to Year One!

In Year One, we have a group of enthusiastic and dedicated teaching staff. Our teachers are Mrs Rosser and Miss Broome and our Teaching Assistants are Miss O’Hara and Mrs O’Neill.

In Year One, we work as a team to build upon the foundations made in Reception, encouraging further independence, curiosity and creativity. We strive for all children to reach their potential in a happy and enabling environment. It is a very important year, with a more structured approach to allow children to take ownership of their learning.

We believe in developing a ‘growth mindset’, where children like being challenged and show resilience and perseverance. ‘I CAN’T DO IT…. YET’.

We hope your child enjoys Year 1 as much as we will. For more information, please look at our Year 1 blog.

Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to welcome your child into school and will be available to answer any questions or queries. If you wish to make an appointment with your child’s class teacher to discuss anything further, please contact the school office.


At Park Hill Primary School, we are passionate about the curriculum and always plan imaginative and creative lessons, with the children at the centre of every decision we make. We want the best for our children, and ensure all lessons are suitably supportive and challenging for all individuals and their needs.

We like the children to be responsible for their own learning, and support them to choose work that will challenge their understanding and extend their knowledge.

Please find our curriculum jigsaw here to see what topics we will cover over the Autumn term. Autumn Term 1


Mrs Rosser

Hello, my name is Mrs Rosser. This is my fourth year at Park Hill Primary, where I spent my first two years in EYFS and last year in Year One. I am excited to help these children with their next school adventure and make learning fun!

I love being creative outside of school. I play the drums in a band, and I have played the piano from a young age. I also love cooking, painting, going on walks and penguins!

Miss Broome

Hi, my name is Miss Broome. This is my second year at Park Hill Primary. I am very excited to lead your children on their learning journeys and I love this year group because children at this age naturally make you laugh every day!

In my spare time, I like cosying up on the sofa with a good book or television programme. I also love long walks in the countryside and all things to do with nature, including owls!




As you are aware, parking around the school grounds can be problematic for our school community and the local residents.Today we received the attached, with information from the thelocal authority.

Live Marking!

We are seeing a really positive impact of our approach to giving the children feedback. Not only are they improving their ability to identify successful work, they are also developing their reasoning and evaluating skills by identifying mistakes, and why and how they were made. All of this is helping us to provide opportunities for […]
