Here at Boddington, happiness, confidence and excellent personal achievement are our priorities.We know that our nurturing environment gives every single pupil the confidence to strive for the best, that our creative curriculum inspires learning and adventure and that our small classes ensure academic success.

Boddington develops happy, confident and well-rounded children, giving them the best possible start for life.

The Team

Miss O'Malley
I have nearly 20 years experience teaching children from Birth to the end of Primary school, having started my career in Private Nursery settings. I have been teaching at Boddington for 8 years. 

I feel truly privileged to work at Boddington, in such a close knit, dedicated school community. It is a hidden gem!

Mrs Buller

I have been coming to Boddington School for nearly 10 years, covering as both short term and Long term supply. More recently I have joined the Teaching Team. 

Also working within our classes are  Mrs Hinks, Miss Wakeman and Mrs Carvosso.

Outdoor Learning

We visit Jubilee Fields throughout the year to learn more about the local area and environment. Outdoor learning offers an approach to teaching that has been proven to engage children and improve performance.


In addition to this, our PTA and local Village Hall committee enables us to participate in Forest School, this takes place throughout the year.

Current Homework and Topic Information

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”

At Boddington, we would like to encourage children to read as much as possible. It is our aim for children to develop a love for reading, where they will want to read for their own pleasure. Some children may need further encouragement to read and so we will also be awarding housepoints to encourage all readers. 

 When you read with an adult, please ask them to sign to say they have listened to you. 



Regularly (ideally every day, at least Four times a week)

School reading books are carefully selected for your child.  It is really important for your child to be reading these regularly at home to become more familiar with words thus improving pace and fluency. Being able to talk about and understand stories is also really important, so once the whole book has been read fluently, we ask that your child reads it again at home with an adult who can ask questions and talk about characters and events in the stories. This will ensure your child becomes confident with both sight reading and comprehension. When your child reads their school reading book with you at home, please fill in their reading diary, noting which page you have reached.

All reading books will be changed on a Friday, if your child does not have their previous books in school they will not receive a new book (this is to ensure all books are returned as we have limited quantities).



In line with the National Curriculum, each year group has a specific set of spellings to cover over the year. These will come home at the start of each term in your childs homework book. Spellings are checked in class every Thursday.


Maths and Reading Apps

All Children in Years 1 to 6 have logins for ‘TTRockstars (Years 2/3)/Numbots (Years 1/2) and ‘Teach your Monster to Read’(R – Year2 children who are still consolidating their phonics knowledge). We ask children use these 4 times a week.


Homework books will need to be handed into your child’s class teacher each Thursday and will be sent home on Fridays.


If you have any issues with being able to access the homework activities, please do contact either Mrs P or your child’s class teacher and we will do our best to support you.
