Teaching Staff


Find out a little about our teachers here at Portreath School.


Mrs Emma Allen

Having escaped an early and misdirected career in the finance sector, Mrs Allen currently teaches Class 4.  She feels privileged that she has had the opportunity to work in a variety of roles within education, both within Portreath School and working for Cornwall Learning. She loves working and learning with others, whether it is with an individual pupil, whole classes or with adults. A passion for inclusion and overcoming barriers to learning have led her to her current role as Special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCo).

When not working in school with children Mrs Allen is usually surrounded by animals instead and currently gives a home to 4 horses and 3 ponies – only some of which are hers! She loves music, reading and spending time with friends and family.
