I am delighted to welcome you to All Saints, Babbacombe.

We are a small, friendly primary school providing an exciting, personalised curriculum for our pupils. We aim to create a happy, safe and nurturing environment, with high standards of teaching in all classes and extra support for those who need it. We are committed to working closely with parents and carers to ensure every child enjoys their time at school, develops a love of learning and achieves their best.

We provide many opportunities to develop each child's unique gifts and talents, whether academic, creative, sporting, or musical. As a Church of England school we hope to plant seeds for a lifelong Christian faith, which will support and nourish our pupils as they journey through life. 

My team and I look forward to working with you and your children.

About the Headteacher

Born and raised in London, my first degree is in the History of Art. I was planning a career in the Arts, until I was asked to run some workshops on a children’s summer play scheme. I had so much fun, I realised that primary teaching was what I wanted to do… After completing my PGCE and qualifying as a teacher, I taught for 15 years in Northamptonshire before relocating to Devon in 1999. I have been headteacher at Babbacombe since 2006; I love working in education and feel privileged to share in the lives and learning journeys of so many children and people. I am very proud of our school and feel very lucky to work with such a talented and committed team of staff and such fantastic children.

I spend my free time enjoying the outdoors: walking on Dartmoor, and trying to keep my garden and bees under control! I love cooking and baking cakes for my family and friends, and am always threatening to open a tea shop one day! I am a keen Arsenal supporter and live in a village just outside Torquay with my husband, who is a tutor and lecturer in renewable energy technologies (and a lifelong Chelsea fan).

Our School

Our school is a place where everyone feels part of the family,

Our school is a place where everyone’s welcome,

Our school is a place where the light bulb is introduced to every child’s head,

Our school is a place where dreams are accomplished,

Our school is a place where tears and fears are demolished,

Our school is a place where education floats and maybe, just maybe,

by the end you’ll know where you want to go.
