Sally Beard

HLTA - Shooting Stars & Supernovas, Family & Learning Mentor

Hi, I’m Sally Beard, I have worked at St Anne’s Infants since 2004. My 2 boys, Sam and Josh attended St Anne’s as did my husband many, many years ago.  I started my career in catering but once I became a parent and then a volunteer in school I realised that my passion was in education. I left my job and went to train as nursery nurse, qualifying in the year 2000. After a couple of years working in another school I found my way back to the place where my heart has always been.  I first worked in the Reception classes, which I loved. I then gained my HLTA and forest school qualification and gradually my role changed. I now work as our family and learning mentor, which ticks all of my boxes. My time in Shooting stars and Supernovas is busy, varied and at times hilarious. The children make me smile every day, well most days! I now have the privilege of working with our wonderful families, they inspire me with their positivity, openness and resilience.   Weekends and holidays are enjoyed by spending time in my caravan in Devon, where I love to walk, read and spend time on the beach, I have even been known to challenge myself on the paddleboard or wakeboard, look out for me if you’re in the area!


Jo Sowerbutts

Teacher - Shooting Stars & Reading Specialist

Hello! I am Jo Sowerbutts and am part of the Inclusion team here at St Anne’s. I joined the school in 2012, covering class teachers across the school and then trained as Reading Recovery teacher in 2013 so specialize in supporting children to become independent readers, a role which I love. Having completed a degree in French (a long time ago) I lived for 5 years in France, teaching English and then returned to Bristol to train as an Early Years teacher. I have taught Early Years and Key Stage One in various schools in Bristol and Padua in Italy. I worked as a Consultant for South Gloucestershire Local Authority, leading the development of Primary Languages but after 6 years, missed being part of a school community and working more directly with children. I love working with the children, parents and my colleagues at St Anne’s. Half of my time is now spent in Shooting Stars where I have the privilege of working with a fabulous group of children and colleagues.

I have 3 children – Nellie, Felix and Leo a husband and a dog called Barney. To relax I cook, sing in a choir and read.

Becca Reid

LSA - Supernovas

At 18, after finishing my A Levels I left home to travel and work around Australia on my own for 12 months.  Afterwards, I returned to my love of theatre and went to study at the Dartington College of Arts in Totnes where I met my husband.  He too loved to travel so once he’d completed his degree we travelled to America, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and India.  We then moved to Bristol in 2005 and I went to work as a Probation Service Officer within a drug management team.  Although I loved my job, we worked hard so I could stay at home with our two young children and once they started at St. Anne’s I soon began volunteering to listen to children read, helping on school trips and then applying to become an SMSA.  I was fortunate to spend 18 months working within the school’s Nursery and now I love working in the school’s fantastic Inclusion team.

I have worked at St Anne's for nearly 20 years in a variety of different support roles. I currently work with Reception and Key Stage 1 children delivering interventions to support them with their reading, writing and maths. I love getting to know the children in a small group and seeing the progress they make. In my spare time, I enjoy getting out into nature, walking in the woods, but most of all, I relish the time I get to spend with my granddaughter in Devon. 


Abi Brown


Hi, I'm Miss Brown, after teaching for 5 years in Special Education and mainstream schools I worked for a civil engineering company for 10 years in Health and safety, streetworks and NVQ training initiatives, during which time I had 2 children.  When my eldest daughter started at St Anne's Infants School in 2015, it became the signal for me to return to my first love of working with children. Initially I was a class based LSA in Year 1 and 2 and now love being part of the inclusion team at St Annes. I also cover leadership time in reception and have been given the fantastic opportunity to train as a Forest School Leader.  When I have free time I mostly spend it outdoors with my family and friends in the woods or by the sea!
