At Ainslie School, we have many 'behind the scenes' specialist teachers and staff that work together with classroom teachers to develop a balanced and engaging curriculum program for your children. These staff members either teach or lead specialist curriculum areas, are part of a team that provides early intervention and inclusion support, or are part of the business management and maintenance team who ensure the smooth running of the school.
