Rachel started Ipsley in September 2014.  Since then she has gone from strength to strength in spite of a condition that means she needs tripod sticks to navigate inside school and a walking frame for the playground.  She approaches each new day and each new task as something to be grasped with both hands and made the best of.  Her enthusiasm and zest for life are truly infectious.

She has recently challenged herself to walk around school with only one tripod stick and academically has progressed quickly, moving to a higher set in English.  In the true sense of the word she lives life to the full and we are pleased with how successfully she has integrated into life at Ipsley.
