MEET THE HEAD TEACHER: Tina Rodwell-Lynn


Tina Rodwell-Lynn has led Blackawton Primary since September 2016. She also teaches Year Five and Six, which means she can stay ‘hands on’ with the children and not forget why she joined the profession in the first place. “I know it sounds like a cliché but I really do think the best part of teaching is knowing you’re making a difference and helping to develop the next set of global citizens.” Tina did her teacher training in city schools in Portsmouth.

confidence as they test their abilities in a real life context. Over time they learn to assess risks to keep themselves and each other safe. We focus on life skills such as independence, teamwork and resilience; teaching them practical bush craft skills like safe fire lighting and campfire cooking.”
