After the children, the staff are our most valuable asset.  We are fortunate to have a stable and committed staff team.

Many teachers and teaching assistants have worked at SWOY for many years, and several were pupils themselves. Some staff have also been parents, as their children have travelled through the school - so, we all want, and work hard for, the very best for our children.
