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. There will also be links to curriculum jigsaws, home learning tasks and other useful information.


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. 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
