Miss Rachel Middis (Staff) (Maternity Cover)

I have worked at Darras Hall Primary School since September 2017. I work as a phase leader in upper Key Stage 2 and I’m also one of the school’s English leads. I have been teaching for 15 years in three schools and across all Key Stages with the majority of my experience in Year 6.  I have been a local authority moderator for KS2 writing in South Tyneside and in Northumberland and have recently taken a lead moderator role for Northumberland Local Authority. I joined the governing body in September 2019 in a temporary role.


I have a passion for reading and instilling a love of reading across our school. I also enjoy singing and performing arts and our Glee Club on Thursdays is one of the highlights of my week!
