Year 2

Mrs Vicki Stavrou

Class Teacher

Hello I’m Mrs. Stavrou and I feel privileged to teach Year 2 and continue their learning journey in KS1, whilst getting them prepared for KS2. This is my fourth year working at St. Newlyn East Learning Academy and I’m very lucky to be part of a unique and special team.

I am also the Design & Technology and Science lead for the school. As a graduate of psychology, I’m interested in the scientific study of behaviour, and I love the inquisitiveness that both the subjects bring out in children.

Out of school, I love going on long walks and spending time exploring Cornwall’s gorgeous beaches with my husband and two children. One of our favourite pastimes is looking for sea glass, and we have built up quite a generous collection! I have a passion for reading, the theatre and getting into the latest box set on Netflix. In the summer time, you might spot me trying to surf-something I’m persevering with.

Mrs Jo Bentley


Hi, my name is Ms Bentley, I have worked within the trust for 6 years. I gained a degree in Teaching and Learning 2 years ago and hope to complete the final year to become a teacher in the near future. I am extremely proud to work at St. Newlyn East School and love my role as support teacher within Year 2.

I have lived in Newquay for 25 years and am so grateful to live by the sea and call Cornwall my home. My home itself is very lively, I have 3 children, Rhys 16, Calum 15 and Maisie who is 9. We spend our spare time walking Ralph, our Westie-Poo, on the beach or at the local woods. I absolutely love reading and spend most evenings at home relaxing with my family and a good book.
