Welcome to Year 4 - Chestnut Class

Class Teacher: Mr James Dawes 

I am a newly qualified teacher following the completion of my PGCE with the University of Exeter. I am originally from Cornwall but have lived locally in Exeter for over fifteen years.

 

I have previously worked for the government for over twelve years and felt a passion for teaching the future generations. This is especially true in regards to making children great citizens and supporters of the local community. 

 

I ensure that my learning environment is calm with emphasis on children taking pride in themselves. This I feel helps the children to be the best they can be.

 

Outside of school I love spending time with my wife and three children, especially trips away camping with friends and family.
