Staff

We have a diverse team of staff members who bring a wide range of experiences and backgrounds to our school.  This includes those who are recently trained and new to education, as well as those who have been part of Linwood Avenue for ten years or more.
This mix of backgrounds and experience helps us to draw on various perspectives when reaching decisions and developing our schools learning programmes.  Like in all successful schools, teamwork is an essential part of what we do to meet the needs of our children.
