Ullesthorpe Church of England Primary School

Mrs Allen - Head of School & Year 5/6 teacher

It is my great pleasure to introduce myself as your new Head of School here at Ullesthorpe CE Primary School. I look forward to getting to know this wonderful school and its community very well over the coming weeks and months. Please feel free to introduce yourself to me at the school gates.

Amazingly, I am now into my third decade of teaching and have taught every single year group! There have been many ‘favourite’ year groups and classes for me – my mind keeps being changed as each time I move to teach a new year group or class it becomes my favourite! I have just completed eight of these many teaching years at a local IPAT sister-school and now look forward to continuing my professional learning journey here at Ullesthorpe. I have been extremely privileged to be able to support many wonderful children through a portion of their primary school journeys.

I enjoy teaching and learning as part of a committed staff team and I am enormously proud of the nurturing that we all give to allow the children in our school community to flourish. I love to set high expectations and challenges for the children that I teach and see them gain the confidence and skills to reach those heights. Three of my regular sayings in the classroom are:

'Read More to Achieve More'

‘All Writing is BEST Writing’

‘Choose First Best to become your BEST.’


Words, words, words… My very favourite subject of all is literacy and I am never happier than when seeing children improve and excel with their own reading and writing. At home, our house is full of books and we have encouraged our own two children to become bookworms like their mum and dad!
