Sally has extensive experience in mainstream and special education in EYFS, KS1 and KS2. After graduating she taught Year 2 at a primary school in Surrey, UK and took on the role of Science Coordinator and teacher liaison to the board of governors.

Sally then became the team leader for Year 2 at an international boarding school in Arusha, Tanzania. She was part of the pastoral care team looking after the boarding students and organising weekend activities and trips, as well as coaching sports teams and establishing a school garden and recycling scheme.  Sally has also taught Year 6 at a school in Kent in the UK and designed and implemented their new curriculum.  

Sally has enjoyed being part of the teaching team at Dover Court and working with the other IPC Co-ordinators to establish the new curriculum.  She has recently received dyslexia training and is able to effectively meet the needs of dyslexic learners. She continues to be involved in different sport and enjoys coaching rugby and netball.
