Avenue is a very large school and there are around 110 staff members, including 57 teachers (some part-time). We have a large leadership team where teachers share the responsibilities normally associated with a head teacher or deputy head teacher in a smaller school. You may find this structure diagram helpful in understanding how the leadership at Avenue works.
Any issues that you have that cannot be dealt with by your child’s class teacher, should go to the Year Group Leader, and from there to the Phase Leader.
Phase leaders have responsibility for a two-year age group, which is eight classes (240 children) in most cases, which is the size of an average school.
