New Classes September 2024

I am pleased to be able to inform you of the teachers for the next academic year (September 2024).  Please see the grid below for who is in which class.  


We have restructured the current Reception children before they move in to their new year group, this is the norm for our school.  Parents of children in Reception will receive another email in the next 6 hours informing you of your child’s class teacher.  If you have not received an email letting you know this by tomorrow morning, please come and ask at the school office.

TRANSITION - tomorrow

Please refer back to the transition email sent previously about our plans to support your children in getting to know their new adults.  The first session is tomorrow, Thursday 20th June 2024.  You will pick your child up from their new classroom.  Please see the attached school plans to show where your child’s new classroom is.  All junior parents wait in the junior car park and the children will be brought to you.  Infant parents need to collect from their new classroom. 


Staffing Update

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that Jenna King will be leaving Berkeley Primary School at the end of the academic year.  Jenna has been an invaluable member of our teaching staff for the past five years, and her dedication to our students has been truly commendable. We will deeply miss her presence and contributions to our school community.  Jenna will be joining North Lincolnshire Council in a new role supporting vulnerable / special needs children with short breaks.  We wish her every success in this role.


We are delighted to have recently appointed Natasha Benstead to our teaching team.  Miss Benstead has been with the school on placement in Year 5 since January 2024, so knows the school really well.  She is an excellent teacher and will be teaching in Year 4. 


If you have any queries regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.


Best wishes

Anna Cvijetic
