My name is Mrs Stratton and I have been teaching since 2003.  I joined Cottage Grove in 2012 as a specialist reading and writing teacher, working with individual children in Key Stage 1.  I missed being a class teacher and am now teaching in Year 1.  I love working with children and helping them to have self-confidence and take pride in their work.  I currently manage phonics in school and enjoy the challenges if teaching early reading skills.  Cottage Grove is my favourite of the schools I have worked in, due to its diverse and accepting culture.
