My name is Mrs Skakich and I work in Jungle Class. I joined the school in September 2019.

My name is Mrs Allsop and I work in Woodland Class. I joined the school in September 2019.

Hi, I'm Gemma Ryan and I joined the school in February 2017. I work as a 1:1 teaching assistant in Desert Class. Before joining the team at Shillingstone, I worked in a SEN school in various roles for nearly six years. I am part of a large extended family. I do not currently have any children but would like to have some in the future. I have many hobbies outside of school: I really enjoy baking yummy treats; reading pretty much anything; going to the cinema; taking photos as reminders of amazing days out; listening to music and going on road trips to music festivals.


I have been working at Shillingstone Primary School since 2004, across all classes. Both my daughters attended the school and my eldest has become a teacher herself. I have run the school breakfast club for 10 years. This year I have moved back to Desert Class, after working in Woodland Class for a number of years. Outside of school, I enjoy walking, cooking, gardening and reading a good book.


I moved to Shillingstone with my family in 2010 and joined the school in March 2011. I work as a teaching assistant, currently in Ocean Class and I am a member of the PTA. I have recently trained as an ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant). My youngest daughter attended the school and is now attending Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form in Wimborne. Shillingstone Primary is a fabulous place to be, especially with the wonderful views we have here! I like anything arty! Outside of school, I enjoy baking and decorating cakes, cycling, walking my dog with my family and doing cross-stitch.
