Welcome to Kestrels

Kestrels are a collaborative class of children who always aim to be the best people they can be in all areas. We support one another to stay safe, to learn and to enjoy ourselves whenever possible. We have agreed a set of Class Commitments to help us do our best.

Each week, we have a Class Commitment target, both as a class and as individuals, which we work on throughout the week and review on Friday.


Teachers in Kestrels:

I am the teacher in Kestrels and my name is Mr. Easterbrook. I have been teaching for eight years, the last seven of which have been at Bradley Barton. I enjoy teaching all subjects, but especially PE, which I lead jointly with Miss Reid across the school, as well as leading history. I can often be found running football clubs and football matches for the school team. I've just started playing golf, and am enjoying the challenge of trying to become more consistent. Mrs. Portsmouth is the LSA who will most often work in Kingfishers, and both Mrs. Portsmouth and Mrs, Thomas will support children with interventions throughout the week.


Class Dojo:

I will endeavour to get back to any queries on Class Dojo within 2 working days and will only check messages in working hours where possible (9am to 5pm). Please contact the school office if you have any urgent messages.
