Ashlie Linfield - Teacher


I am Ashlie and I have been teaching since 1995.  I began teaching in mainstream schools but quickly realised I was drawn to those children who found traditional teaching methods a barrier to learning.  I moved to special education and have spent my career learning everyday about teaching neurodiverse children and adults.  I firmly believe that all children only learn when they feel safe, secure and are having fun.  

I am primary based but have worked with children from nursery to secondary and in recent years with adults in supported employment.   

Outside of school my interests are in the arts and I enjoy visiting galleries theatres, music festivals, travelling the world and skiing. 


At home with my family my passion is horses and I have three ponies Bracken, Spirit and Mcginty and this is my happy place.
