Lower School Team (N, R and Y1)

                   Welcome to Lower School!                 


It is my pleasure to welcome you to our Lower School Team page on behalf of the staff and pupils in Nursery, Reception and Year One. Each team and Year Group in Shiphay have their own section on our website.  Here's where we share our learning and you can find out more about what is happening in school. 


I was fortunate to join Shiphay Learning Academy in January 2018. Prior to this, I taught locally in Torbay for thirteen years where I gained leadership experience. I am a qualified Special Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) and have had many successful years in this role. My specialist subject area is Science, with a particular focus on Outdoor Learning and Environmental Science.


In September 2019 I transitioned from Middle School to Lower School and am based across Early Years where I have assumed the role of Lower School Team Leader. If at any point you would like to contact me I can be reached via


Best wishes
