Welcome to Class 1

Class 1 has the advantage of having not one but two teachers again this year. We hope that this will offer consistency and a smooth transition from Class R where they were already used to this.


Mrs McDonagh (Mondays and Tuesdays) has been at Milverton School for many years (the actual number of years is subject to a strict non-disclosure agreement between the two of us!) and is still as passionate about educating children as ever. Mrs Atterton (Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays), an ex-pupil of the school, is in her 4th year at Milverton School and has been working in the education sector for the last 7 years. We are both parents of children at primary school and, therefore, always have in the forefront of our minds how we would like and expect our own children to be treated and taught and put this into practice in our classroom.


As early years specialists, we adopt a variety of teaching styles to ensure that the needs of all the children are met with a diverse and accessible curriculum. In Class 1 we want the children to feel safe and that they belong and are valued.


At present communication is being done via email. For general enquiries please contact the school office and for questions about your child's learning, please send a message via the class email address. Email addresses are below. 


We look forward to getting to know our children and parents throughout the year.


Mrs Atterton and Mrs McDonagh
