Welcome to Year 3 – Silver Birch Class

Class Teacher: Mr Sam Butler

This will be my third year teaching at Redhills Primary school having joined from a large primary school in Tiverton. I am passionate about developing the community feel in the school, with the Blue Sky Café and school farm being areas of the school that I am excited to see develop throughout the year. 

It will be my seventh year as a qualified teacher and my third as part of the leadership team.


I started my journey into teaching at the University of Gloucestershire where I studied Sports Education before returning to Devon to complete my Initial Teacher Training at the University of Exeter. Before teaching I spent a lot of time working and volunteering in a number of roles within education including, delivering afterschool clubs, promoting disability sports and supporting residential trips.  

Outside of school, I enjoy watching and participating in many sports. I also spend a lot of time exploring the countryside with my wife and dog, Oscar.
