Mrs Emma Russell

Class Teacher, Deputy Head-Teacher, SENDCo


I love to spend my free time either reading (mostly historical dramas),  walking my two beloved dogs or tending my ever growing garden.

As a teacher, my passions are:

To instill a life-long love of learning in all children. 

To support and encourage their natural inquisitiveness so that they grow into independent, caring members of the world.

To help them realise that the world is their oyster and that the sky is the limit.

Our class tree is the Chequer Tree, also known as the wild service tree. Sadly, this native tree is now a rarity but can still be found in ancient woodlands. The name "chequers" may have come from the spotted pattern of the fruit, though some suggest it is from the pattern of the bark. Before the introduction of hops, the fruit were used to flavour beer which could be why we have many pubs in Kent named 'The Chequers'. The berries were sold in Kentish markets and traditionally used as a herbal remedy for colic.
