Staff and GovernorsBack
Pippa is our whole school SENCO and Wellbeing Co-ordinator. Pippa studied History and European Studies at UWE in Bristol, representing the University in their Sailing team. Loving Bristol so much, she went straight on to complete her PGCE.
Moving to Surrey, she began her career in KS1, quickly becoming KS1 lead. Pippa joined Ripley Court in 2021 as our Head of Nursery, leading a forward-thinking team and expanding the Nursery.
Always having had an interest in additional needs, she returned to the classroom and in 2012 qualified from Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre with OCR level 5 qualification with distinction. In 2015 Pippa took over the SEN department and became our SENCO. She is a passionate expert in her field. Following extensive work with a local and highly respected Clinical Psychologist, Pippa widened her skills in 2019 and became a Youth Mental Health First Aider. Pippa is also our school ELSA lead, working on emotional literacy skills.
Pippa loves being ‘green’ and supports Mrs Cumberland in the Green Team. She has two children who both went all the way through Ripley Court and is happiest being creative and taking up lots of new hobbies. She loves yoga, being outdoors: running, in the garden, looking after her chickens or on the Pembrokeshire Coast path.
