Our Foundation Team

Miss Jane Raymont

Foundation Stage Class Teacher – Donkeys


I have been teaching at Oatlands since 2001 which was my first teaching job following studying for a PGCE at York St Johns. I have a degree in environmental science and have studied for an HND in agriculture which probably explains my love for the outdoors.

Out of school I have 3 daughters, I have a small menagerie at home including a pony, a cat, a dog, a pig and chickens which keep me busy in my spare time!


Miss Harriet Walker

Foundation Stage Class Teacher – Turtles

I am a true Yorkshire lady at heart, which explains my love of tea! I grew up in a little village near York, and I completed my teaching degree with Religious Education and Theology at York St John University in 2010. Over the last 8 years I have loved teaching EYFS and KS1 in North Yorkshire and Wiltshire.

In my spare time I love to walk my two cheeky dogs in the countryside, improve my photography skills, explore National Trust properties and eat cake.


Miss Vikki Ross

Foundation Stage Class Teacher – Pandas



I became a teacher at Oatlands in 2014. I fell in love with the school when I was a student and have been here ever since. During my time in school I have taught across all of the year groups. I am currently based in Reception. I was born in the North East but moved to Yorkshire 13 years ago. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, eating (vegan) cake, reading books and watching horror films. 


Mrs Diane Warhurst

Foundation Stage Teaching Assistant - Turtles


I started working at Oatlands in 2001 and throughout my time in school I have supported all year groups. I am currently supporting the Turtles Class.

Out of school I am married with 3 lovely children and my hobbies are walking the family dog and every girl’s dream… shopping!
