Rufford Primary School

Specialist Teachers

We employ specialists to teach sport, computing and aspects of the arts. This means children have the opportunity to participate and excel in all areas – academic, artistic, technical and sporting.


Dave teaches drumming on alternate Mondays through out the year. All classes take part and finish their set of sessions with a performance in assembly.

All children in year 4 have the chance to learn a musical instrument (either flute or guitar). If they wish they can carry on learning in years 5 and 6 and join the local 'Area Band'.


Jay, a professional dancer, works with classes on Wednesdays. He links the dance style to the children's topic work with impressive outcomes.


Mrs Simner, a Primary Computing Teaching and Learning Specialist works with classes across school. We have an impressive computer suite plus laptops and Ipads in school and through Mrs Simner we have access to a wide range of specialist resources.


Lauren, a gymnastics specialist, visits each Monday. She teaches across the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and 2. She also works with children at lunchtime, as well as offering after school gymnastics clubs.
