Who's Who

Come and meet the staff at our school!



Mrs Naomi Philp


Mrs Philp is our Headteacher, Mrs Philp is also Head teacher of Dunster First School.

Mrs Philp is also temporarily overseeing the running of Cutcombe CoE First School as Head teacher until September 2019. 

Mrs Philp is also our Designated Child Protection and Safeguarding Lead. Mrs Blackmore, Miss McEntee and Mrs Hickman are deputy safeguarding leads. 

Mrs Philp is on site at our school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  However, Mrs Philp can be contacted at any site and the school office staff hold her diary if parents, carers or other visitors wish to contact her.  

When Mrs Philp is not onsite, Mrs Blackmore is the senior teacher in charge of the school and day to day educational activities, supported by Miss Sparks who is the SENCO onsite. Mrs Angela Hall is the school 'executive' SENCO working across Dunster and Timberscombe schools. 


As part of the Moorland Federation and sharing our Head teacher with Dunster First School we can share our expertise of staff and make the most of all the skillsets across all our schools. This pools our resources, and strengths helping us to offer the best educational experience for all our pupils and families.
