Year 3 Team

Sharon Murphy

I have been at Crabbs Cross for three years now and feel thoroughly at home here!  I have taught in all year groups and have returned to Year 4 after teaching in Key Stage 1.  I am very passionate about the curriculum and love planning and teaching lessons which inspire and engage children.

Outside school, I live with my husband, two daughters and our old dog Scottie.  We really enjoy walking and often spend hours trying to follow maps and getting lost!  I really enjoy reading and love watching films with the family.

Lucy Gibbons

Hello, I'm Lucy Gibbons and this is my first year teaching at Crabbs Cross although I have previously taught across a number of schools in Worcestershire and Lancashire. I'm enjoying getting to know everyone and have been very excited to get outside in Forest School with my class this term.

Outside of school I live with my husband, our two children and our dog. I love to be outside walking, cycling or doing some gardening. I also enjoy the chance to make things and particularly like sewing and printing.

Marion Priestley 

Hello, I’m Marion Priestley.  Having spent 14 years teaching at a school in Birmingham, I joined Crabbs Cross Academy in 2016, where I have been very lucky to work with a fantastic team of staff and children.

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two children, who like to keep me very busy!  When we’re not out and about playing in the local park or exploring National Trust properties, I like to relax by getting ‘lost’ in a good book.
