Teacher in Busy Bees Class. This is a mixed age class containing year 1 and year 2 children.


Welcome to Busy Bees.

My name is Mrs. Cusick and I am the teacher of Year 1 and Year 2. Our class teaching assistant is Mrs. Taylor. In Busy Bees we make learning fun and exciting, always striving for excellence and ensuring every child reaches their full potential.  

We manage this through the following:

  •    Focused group teaching
  •    Valuing every child
  •    Small school setting 
  •    Learning outside the classroom
  •    A broad and balanced themed curriculum which is relevant to the lives of our children.
