‘Where every moment is a learning opportunity’

Main Slideshow


My name is Sarah Smith and I have been working as a TA at Montacute School since April 2021. I am very much enjoying the challenging and rewarding environment and being part of such a wonderful, committed team. 

Before coming to Montacute I worked as a Deputy Manager of a local Preschool, gaining my level 3 Early Years Educator Diploma. Having had some experience of working with children with learning disabilities, I decided that these were the children I wanted to work with.

Previous to working in Early Years I worked in the healthcare sector as a Healthcare Assistant at Swanage Hospital and also providing cover at Poole and Salisbury Hospitals too.

When living in Scotland for two years, my Husband and I were approved by Angus Council to be Foster Carers after very intensive training. We provided respite care until moving back to Dorset. Being a Foster Carer is a role that I have every intention of taking up again in the future.
I am a Mum to one daughter, adore animals, owning two dogs and a horse and would love more!
