Mr D. Lennon

Head Teacher and BSAT Team Leader


Keep up to date with my blog as I try to keep you all informed of the fantastic work within The Linden Centre and Education.

Monday 20th July 2020

So, we have all completed Autism Education Trust (AET) training today followed by a meeting about our Special Educational Needs support as a school preparing for next year. 

We are all looking forward to the well deserved break and so I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of the members of The Linden Team for their support over the year. The Linden Centre would not be as successful as it is without you! 

We are also waving goodbye to Mrs Byrne as she leaves us to have a baby. Enjoy your maternity and we look forward to seeing you back with us soon. We wish you all of our love throughout the next year - remember where we are :-) 


Well, that is it - See you next term. 

Over and out

Well, there goes another school year - and what a year is has been. 

I am sat here thinking about the year we have all been through and how many young people we have supported through our Linden Centres and BSAT Team throughout Telford and Wrekin. I am really proud of the progress made by each and every student.

As a staff team, we are absolutely gutted that we have not been able to say a Linden Goodbye to all of those leaving us but we know you will be back to see us as you progress through your next stage. 

Please remain safe over the Summer holidays and we look forward to welcoming all returning students back to school on Thursday 3rd September 2020 in your new school uniforms. 


Have a lovely holiday!

End of year reports have been sent out to parents. Please read your child's report and share it with them also. We have included targets for students to continue to work on and provided attendance and academic information.

We are very proud of each and every single one of you! Your reports have shown the progress that you have made.

Well done!

Well, Who knew that today is 'World Chocolate Day' or even that Chocolate day is even a thing?

Luckily today, Mrs Hollands jumped to the rescue with a packet of Maltesers, Minstrels and Dairy Milk Buttons.


We have all been working really hard today preparing to welcome back our Secondary pupils continuing with us next year and so the chocolate has helped provide that extra energy.


All Teachers and Teaching Assistants have found out which centre and class they will be teaching next year and I look forward to sharing this news with you all.

We understand that transition this year will seem a bit strange but we will support this by 'Virtual Transitions' and spending the first two days in September as a class to welcome you to the school.

I hope you are all okay still and managing to keep on top of I-XL.

See you all soon.

Where did that Summer term go?

Well, I'm sat here today looking back over the term since I took on the role of Headteacher. I've sat in silence for a good 20 minutes just reflecting over the changes over the past six months and looking at how far we have gone.

We started January with three provisions, each of them could easily have been filled up with young people requesting places to support their assessments and requiring an iintervention placement.

With the support of BSAT joining The Linden Centre team, we have been able to support even more transitions and this has now opened spaces up for more students.

We have developed our latest provision, provisionally named 'The Hub' but now known as Linden Secondary Specialist School and the curriculum across the Assessment and Intervention Centres and Specialist Schools have been changed to reflect the full National Curriculum.


Whilst we have had many changes this term, it has been a very difficult term with Coronavirus and not allowing us to support all learners as we would have previously. This has been made even harder with our students transitioning to new placements for September.

Colleagues have been busy preparing end of year reports and planning for the new curriculum.  

I hope that you are all staying safe and I look forward to seeing as many of you back as we can.

Well, we have just finished our first day as a 'closed school' only open to those with EHCPs and Vulnerable Children.

I would like to thank each member of the team for their committment to each centre. Supporting with learning and childcare in addition to making school lunches and delivering them across Telford and Wrekin to those who benefit from free school meals.

It has been so quiet today!

Please believe me when we say that we are not enjoying this, we would love to have each of you back in school right now. We truly miss you and can not comprehend how the next few weeks/months will look.

Whilst you are not in school, please remember that we will be making contact with you via telephone and you can access teachers in school via teams, skype or telephone should you need any further support.

Keep using I-XL, this will help you and we will make sure you have enough work set to complete.

See you all soon and stay safe!

Hello to all pupils, parent/carer(s) and all stakeholders,

Firstly, I would like to wish you all a very Happy new Year.

For me, I saw in the new year surrounded by my family and friends (at a silent disco) and I couldn't wait for the clock to strike midnight, as this was the time that I officially took over as Headteacher of The Linden Centres.

I can't wait to get started and to see you all.

Have a fantastic few days and I'll get around to see you all soon.


Kind regards,

Mr Lennon
