Hi, my name is Michelle Lowe. I joined the team at Shillingstone in September 2014 and was working as a 1:1 teaching assistant in Woodland Class. Since September 2016, I have been working in Jungle Class, supporting the Reception children in our school. Before joining Shillingstone, I previously worked as a teaching assistant in Blandford and have always thoroughly enjoyed working with children, watching them grow and develop over the years. I live in Blandford with my husband and two children, both of which are in Desert Class. Outside of school, I enjoy baking, cycling and spending time with my family.
I have worked at Shillingstone Primary School for over 11 years, working in Key Stage 2. During this time I have worked as a 1:1 teaching assistant with 2 different children. Since September 2013, I have moved to Woodland Class, supporting the younger children in the school. My daughters attended this school and are now both at University. I enjoy my job very much and work with some great people. Outside of school I enjoy cooking, gardening and cycling.
My name is Mrs Saunders and I joined the team at Shillingstone Primary in May 2016. I work as a 1:1 teaching assistant in Woodland Class. Previously I have worked in nurseries and pre-schools and thoroughly enjoy working with children. Outside of school, I enjoy travelling abroad, photography and walking my puppy, Winifred, with my husband, John.
Hello! My name is Sally Moseley. At the moment I am working in Ocean Class as a 1:1 teaching assistant, which is a role I very much enjoy. I joined Shillingstone School in September 2008, when I started in class 3. I have 3 children who spent their primary years at this school, one of whom has Special Needs. My outside interests include gardening, sports, cross stitch and walking my dog.
Hi, my name is Kirsty Sellick and I joined the school in September 2014. I work as a 2:1 teaching assistant in Ocean Class at the beginning of the week, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. I am one of the main first aiders in the school. For the last 15 years, I have been a children's nurse and I am now enjoying my new role working at Shillingstone Primary. Outside of school, I am very busy being mum to my 3 boys. We spend most of our time bike riding, walking and anything else outside!
I have been working as a Teaching Assistant here at Shillingstone Primary School for over 13 years, some of it in Class 3 and more recently in Class 4. As well as supporting the children in Desert Class, I am also the ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) in the school. As I live in the village, many years before I was a pupil of the school myself and later my 4 children also attended Shillingstone School. My eldest grandson is now in Desert Class, in Year 5 and his brother is in Woodland Class, in Year 2. Their youngest brother will be joining the school in the future! As you can see Shillingstone School has been part of my life for many years with many happy memories. My interest include: walking the dog, cycling, keeping fit and playing with my grandsons.
I moved to Shillingstone with my family 3 years ago. I work as a 1:1 teaching assistant, currently in Desert Class and am a member of the PTA. My youngest daughter attended the school and is now at Sturminster Newton High School. It's a fabulous place to be, especially with the wonderful views we have here! I like anything arty! Outside of school, I enjoy cycling and walking my dog with my family.
