Just a few of our teachers in Barnstaple

Mrs Holly T

Qualified and experienced primary school teacher now running my own messy play/playgroup business. My last teaching job (left August 2021) lasted for 6 years teaching across the primary and secondary curriculum to children/young people with SEN, SEMH, behavioural and all learners with ECHP in place. My extensive experience here allows me to attune well to a whole range of learning needs I may be faced with and I enjoyed the challenge of every day being different to the previous. The idea of tutoring is really exciting because I am able to adapt my teaching style, lesson content and use of language to really engage my young person without the external noise of other children and the environment which in a mainstream classroom can be a negative experience for learners with additional needs.
