The Phonics Fox® - North Bucks, South Northants and North Oxon


Tel: 07796 715116

Claire and Jemma met in 2007 when they started working alongside each other at a local independent Prep School.

Claire is a highly experienced teacher having qualified in 1999, graduating with a first class honours degree, specialising in Art and Design. She has worked in Key Stage 1, 2 and the Early Years as well as undertaking a senior management role prior to having her eldest daughter. She has recently become a mummy for a second time during lockdown.

Jemma began her career in education as a Teaching Assistant. Whilst working in this role, she completed her teaching training and qualified in 2013. She has taught across Early Years and Key Stages 1 and 2.  Jemma has two young daughters (aged 5 and 2) who she has thoroughly enjoyed supporting with their early recognition of letter sounds. Jemma specialised in Phonics during her training and mentored a team in her department. This led to her interest and enthusiasm into how young children learn and retain reading skills.

Claire and Jemma are both passionate about children learning through play and practical and creative experiences. They know the importance of making teaching fun and engaging, whilst catering for a variety of ages and abilities.

Claire and Jemma say, "Supporting reading and writing has to be the most rewarding element when teaching young children. They are like sponges, so creating a love of books and stories and igniting an interest in literacy at a young age is always wonderful to see!"

Teaching interactive lessons has always been a priority for both Claire and Jemma. Their aim is to develop firm foundations on which to build children's knowledge before starting their school life. Happy, confident children thrive when learning is fun. This is the ethos that Claire and Jemma will promote through their sessions. They are looking forward to becoming part of The Phonics Fox® team.

My older boy starting The Phonics Fox class when he was 2 and has progressed so well. The way Chloe runs the class is amazing as my boy will copy and do the same through role play at home.


My younger boy also loves the classes and from 15 months he started saying the letter sounds. Both of my boys have developed so much from going to these classes so can’t recommend them highly enough and thank Chloe for all the hard work she puts in.
