Lynne Murphy

Assistant Head Teacher for Teaching and Learning and Designated Lead for Safeguarding, with additional responsibility for Food, Art and Creativity

I have been extremely fortunate in my career to work at Epinay School for 29 years in various roles and capacities. I started life in the early days as a year 7 pastoral teacher; teaching Food Technology, Art and English teacher, moving on to a subject leads for both Food and Art. In recent years, I progressed to senior teacher with responsibility for Cognition and Learning and Creative Partnerships. My latest position is as Assistant Head and designated lead for safe guarding, a role which is demanding but incredibly rewarding.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending precious time with my family and friends. I have passion for sporting activities whether it is watching my beloved Newcastle United or participating in spinning and body combat classes at my local gym.

I enjoy travelling around Europe, exploring new places and sampling the local food and culture.

Both personally and professionally, I want to continue to strive for positive outcomes for all the young people who I have the pleasure of working with. I would like to further develop my leadership skills to ensure that the embedded outstanding practice and vision of Epinay School continues for many years to come.
