Julie Lumley

I have worked here since 2021. I love my job; each day is different! I try to spend as much time as I can with the pupils who attend Coastal Park. It is really great getting to know the children and I try to make them laugh all the time! The children who attend Coastal Park are happy and enjoy school.

At our school we offer a wide range of activities as well as our core curriculum subjects. Our pupils can choose to go swimming, cycling, boxing, animal welfare, skateboarding or catering to name a few. At Coastal Park we listen to the pupils; we regularly ask them what activities they would like to undertake and we try to make it work for them.
