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.

Our Teachers from September 2023

*Each class has been assigned a place name starting with Shirehampton for Under 3's and stretching further afield as children move up the school.
