At Shaw Primary, we have a very strong and experienced team. Leadership is delegated, and all voices are listened to. Shaw is a happy school where all staff share the school's vision and contribute towards it. This vision is also shared by the children as individuals, classes, the school council, the eco council, and as a whole school. They believe that their school is the best school, and so do we!
