Shirehampton Primary

Teaching Staff

As well as our teaching staff covering each classroom, we also have full time and part time PPA (planning, preparation and assessment) teachers who cover the 10% non-teaching time for each full time class teacher.  We also have a modern foreign language (MFL) teacher, Carmen Garcia, who teaches Spanish right across the school including Nursery.
