Amie - what a breath of fresh air you were! Completely devastated for your family, friends and all of NPA. You really were taken too soon but I am sure your memories will live on forever. All my love ❤️
such an inspiring amazing teacher taken far too soon we will always love and miss you more than words can describe. Your amazing teaching has made an incredible impact on everyone. We will never forget you Mrs Linton. Lacey and family Xxx
Amie, your dedication to teaching, enthusiasm for life and that beaming smile will stay with me always xx
Amie - in working with you over the years throughout the Transition phase from primary to secondary, it was always clear to see your care and love for the children you taught. You knew each of them inside and out, and were always ready to celebrate all they had achieved in their time at Norton Primary. This great insight and ability to build compassion and relationships with the children in your care, is truly deserving of the inspirational quality that you had in abundance.
As an Academy, we will continue to pray for you, your family, your colleagues and all the students at Norton Academy.
Rest grant to her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace, Amen.
I had the pleasure of working with Amie for a short time, but she left a lasting impression. I could tell in that time how much she loved reading , teaching, and understood how to ignite that spark in the children. I’ll hold onto the fond memories when I see the ‘loop’ on the rollercoaster - a perfect example of your enthusiasm. You will be sadly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your friends and family.
May you rest in peace, Amie. X
I thought that as the days passed, I'd find the words to express my sorrow for the loss of such a wonderful colleague. But whatever I write, it can never encapsulate how much Amie meant to all the children and staff at NPA. Such an inspirational lady with a love for life and literature, taken from us far too soon.
Rest in peace dear Amie, love "Suz" xx
Dear Amie, I remember so well the first time I met you at interview – your passion, enthusiasm and energy bowled me over and continued to do so as you joined NPA, it was a genuine privilege to work with you. Your positive, can-do attitude rubbed off on everyone, adult and child alike, and instilled self-belief into so many pupils who were lucky enough to know you. Nothing can adequately express the sadness of your loss Amie but know that the impact you had on so many will continue to shine brightly. My love and thoughts to all who are feeling your loss and most especially to your family. Rest peacefully Amie x
So hard to find the words to say how much you'll be missed Amie. You were inspirational to both pupils and staff. A born teacher with a lust for life and a wicked laugh. I feel so proud to be able to call you my friend. You'll always be in my heart. Xx
This is truly the hardest message I have ever had to write. Amie you know how terrible I am at expressing myself when writing, I always said I needed to be in your classes. We have shared so many good times together over the years, even watching the Boro. You have always been so passionate and you have had such a positive impact on everyone around you. You will be greatly missed at school by everyone but never forgotten. Much love to all her friends and family xx
Dear miss linton .. my greatest condolences are with your family as you will be massively missesd by anyone who had the pleasure of meeting you were such a vibrant happy person who never failed to make everyone smile like taking selfies at class trips and dressing up as the men from holes with mrs Lowes and re-writing our song for our 2016 leavers song -7 years x you loved and cared for everyone and always made me smile when telling us about new things that were happening like your daughter starting school x words will never truly describe how much you will be missed and the team at norton primary have shaped the person I am today and have inspired me to one day teach and have such and influence as you have x
Such tragic news, you will be missed massively. Working with you on after school clubs and robinwood was always so much fun. We would proper belly laugh the whole time! My thoughts go out to your family x
We were so shocked and saddened to hear the terrible news.
Miss Linton you were a fantastic and inspiring teacher to all, always full of life and enthusiasm and it was evident that you genuinely cared for all your pupils education & well-being.
You were always on hand to talk & listen and were often the last teacher in the playground talking with a parent.
Thank you for all you gave to my children whilst they attended NPA. Emmie thought the world of you and her confidence grew immensely whilst in your class last year.
NPA will certainly not be the same without you.
Our prayers and thoughts are with your family .
Thankyou so much for the kindness, help and support that you gave me. You were the best teacher i could ever ask for, you will always be in our hearts. Kye and family x
Thank you for everything you have done for me and for always helping me through my struggles.you will be missed by many. RIP Miss Linton 🙏💔xx
We didn't have the pleasure of getting to know you Amie, but your reputation was such that I was thrilled that you'd be teaching Jaynie for year 6 in September. She would have absolutely thrived with you. Your loss is going to affect so many people who knew you, but it's also sad that so many children will miss out on you sharing your passion and encouragement. Much love to everyone who is missing this lovely lady from their lives xxx
I feel really sad that you are gone. I was looking forward to you being my teacher in September and excited about joining the book club because I love reading just like you. I'll miss you 😔💔
I haven’t been able to face opening this. It all just seems so surreal, how could it possibly be!? You are one special lady Amie. You touched the hearts of so many and NPA won’t be the same without you. Love always ‘Harps’ x
I was really looking forward to you being my new teacher, i had met you a few times and heard you were a big football fan, my heart goes out to your family you will forever missed r. I p miss Linton x
Miss Linton you were such a lovely teacher and always made everyone in the class laugh you were a kind and lovely teacher I will never forget you Miss Linton may you fly high with the angels love from Bailey x
Amie....... Strong, passionate, dedicated and so enthusiastic. A tragedy to see such a lover of life taken so early. Love and prayers to your family and all at NPA
I'm so very sad to be writing this,
You where the most caring and kindest teacher. You always supported me in everything I done, in and out school, you made me enjoy school again,
I just wish I could have told you how much I looked up to you, you will never be forgotten Miss Linton.
Having to tell Ella and Charlie that you were no longer with us was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. The world has been robbed of a truly inspiring teacher; your enthusiasm for reading will live on. You had an amazing ability to get to know your pupils so well, and guide them to be the best version of themselves they could be. We are so grateful for the past 3 years where you have been part of Ella and Charlie’s lives, the words written in the end of year reports, and leaver’s books by you will be treasured. I hope that in time your family and friends will find comfort knowing how many lives you did touch, which shows just how very special you really were.
Our love and thoughts go out to your family, friends and everyone at NPA.
You will never be forgotten. xxx
I’m truly heartbroken that one of the nicest teachers in my school has passed away. 💔
It has been so difficult to write this: with all the thesauruses and dictionaries I still wouldn’t be able to find the right words.
It was obvious from when we first met each other that you would make a fantastic teacher: you were so passionate and enthusiastic about everything, especially reading. You’ve inspired so many young minds and it is a tragedy that so many children won’t have the opportunity to be taught by you. Your memory will live on at Norton Primary and in the hearts of the children you inspired.
Amie, over the past few days I have tried so many times to put pen to paper; words can not express the sadness I am feeling inside.
You were not only a colleague, but a friend who was always there to listen to and encourage me on so many occasions. But most of all you were always on hand with a terrible cup of coffee.
Your passion and enthusiasm for teaching was inspiring! I was lucky enough to be apart of many of your lessons and witness the impact you had on the children's lives. You constantly strived to ensure each and every one of them were able to succeed.
You have left a massive hole in our NPA family and will be missed terribly.
A beautiful, kind soul taken far too soon.
This is not a goodbye, this is a see you later chick. Rest well lovely. Xx💔
Amie, you have inspired the minds and touched the hearts of so many. I have benefited from your honest, supportive and inspirationally positive attitude in a professional capacity and you have shaped the hearts and minds of so many pupils and colleagues in your day to day work. These are achievements which will never be forgotten. My thoughts are with your family, friends and colleagues at this unbelievable time.
I was really looking forward for having you has my year 6 teacher in September you will be missed loads 😢 R I P
R.I.P Miss Linton you will be sadly missed by us all Harley was looking forward to having you as his teacher in September and now his sad you've gone, I will miss serving you your brownies on a dinner time, keep flying high, Kayleigh, Harley & Harry Finn xx

Miss Linton you were a terrific teacher. Millie remembers been in robin wood and encouraging her to do the activities which she was so nervous of. You really have been taken too soon and you will missed by many people. Rip miss Linton 😢
Although our boys didn’t have you as their teacher, they both thought the world of you we were so saddened to hear that your amazing light had been extinguished far to early, you will be missed by all, and will always bring a smile when we think of you Kris said he knows you will be looking down from heaven xx
Myself and my son Finley were absolutely heartbroken on hearing that devastating news on Wednesday, you truly were a fantastic teacher who genuinely cared about each and everyone of your pupils. Y6 had the strangest and saddest end to their primary years last week and everyone will miss you xxx
Amie- you were a true inspiration, Both myself and grace can’t believe you have gone. You touched the lives of so many people and you will be truly missed. Grace loved to read with you and you encouraged her love of books which because of you she will continue to learn and grow. Sleep tight miss Linton love your little book worm grace xxx
I was deeply saddened to hear of mrs Linton passing as she one of the teachers that brought the best out of 2 of my sons.. mckenzie who moved upto secondary last year and Dylon who moves up to secondary in September.. they both have extremely fond memories of her.. mine is how highly she spoke of both my boys in our parent teacher conferences especially Dylon who has always been dubbed my demon child by family an friends. She taught him there’s a time for fun an there’s a time for learning.. And I will forever be greatful to her for bringing out the best in him an what he is actually capable of. It’s thanks to her he discovered his love of maths which I adored her for. And Mckenzie always spoke highly of her and the way she took the time to give him that little extra one on one time once he found the courage to ask for help. I will forever be indebted to you mrs Linton and I hope your at peace.. good night, god bless.. gone but never ever will you be forgotten.. xx
You were Such a wonderful teacher who always had a smile on your face. In assemblies the emotion You showed with how proud you were of the students was so genuine that it impacted everyone. The reading competition between year 6 I will always remember by your face when entering school, could always tell which class was winning! I will make sure Thomas keeps on reading. Thank you for all you have given to every student, teacher and parent...a truly beautiful person inside and out. R.I.P Miss Linton xx
Miss Linton I was really happy to be getting you as my year 6 teacher in September. I love books as much as you do and I really enjoyed been in book club sharing books with you. I will keep reading to make you proud. I will miss you love Olivia xx
I have sat here for so long trying to write the words, their just isn’t enough. When we recieved the tragic news, myself and Kaci were devastated, we still are. Amie, I can't comprehend that you have gone when you still had so much to give. What a wonderful teacher! You had such a passion for teaching, helping kaci achieve her best Through her sats and preparing her for secondary, you have been such a vital part of Kacis journey and we are so glad she got to spend her last year with you. Your passion for reading will continue to be passed on to all who enter the NPA library and will help guide Kaci through her secondary school years. My love and thoughts are sent to your family, friends and colleagues at this sad time. Forever in our hearts Amie you will never be forgotten. Your legacy lives on . Fly high, love nikki, kaci and family xx💔
Amie, you were a beautiful, kind-hearted young woman and you touched the hearts of all who knew you. I’m finding it hard to believe that I will not see your smiley face at the office door saying ‘Morning lovelies’ or ‘Morning lovely ladies’.
You are forever in my thoughts, with pride I speak your name and even though life goes on without you it will never be the same. Goodnight beautiful XX
Amie, I remember when you started at NPA, your enthusiasm, dedication and cracking sense of humour shone through straight away, you were such fun. Parents of the children you taught always spoke so highly of you and the impact you had on their children, your family can be so proud of everything you achieved.
You were taken too soon but your memory will always live on. Fly high with the angels, we will miss you always xxxx
Amie, I still can't comprehend that you have gone when you still had so much to give. What a wonderful teacher! You had so much passion for teaching, helping children achieve their best and so much respect from all your pupils. Your passion for reading will continue to be passed on to all who enter the NPA library. My love and thoughts are sent to your family. Fly high, love Laura xx💔
Amie - I have found it so difficult to find the words this week. We became such good friends from the day we started working together in 2013, and have shared a passion for teaching and a good friendship ever since. When I left Norton Primary in 2017, it would have been easy to drift apart, but you did not let this happen. You were very regularly in touch, and were always the driving force behind making sure our meet-ups happened every few months. Our last one had to be cancelled due to lockdown, and our next was already planned in for next week. I will continue to think of you so much, particularly when I am teaching, and I am heartbroken to think you won’t be at the other end of the phone to share my experiences with at the end of a long day. I will miss you incredibly. You’ve left a special legacy which will be honoured by friends, colleagues, pupils and your gorgeous family. Miss you always.
To Amie - one of my closest friends and to one of the most inspirational and dedicated teachers I have ever known. You touched the life of so many, both pupils and colleagues alike. You were tragically taken far too early and had so much more to give. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to work so closely with you at your time at NPA. Your determination to always achieve the best outcomes was infectious and invaluable to the pupils in your care. As your mentor colleague and friend, you would constantly refer to me as your hero and inspiration, yet you were the inspiration to so many and will always be my hero. You supported my family and I through some challenging times and equally were there to share the cherished times; my girls came to think of you as a second mum – although YOU would say that you were more like their big sister, as I so often needed to look after you too! Already, I feel comfort from the fact that our “three young musketeers” will always be there to support one another; Andrew, Mark and I will ensure that they continue to make lots more everlasting memories. As I sit and write this now , they are together creating chaos and having new adventures. Your legacy and your love for reading will always live on in the children you have taught and your family whom you loved so much. I only wish that you were here to see how much of a difference you have made.
Love you chick - miss you, like you wouldn’t believe. Sleep tight beautiful. xxx
Amie you were such a kind, enthusiastic and inspirational woman that I had the pleasure of knowing. An amazing teacher so passionate about teaching and the students. You were such an inspiration to all and will be deeply missed RIP XXX
Such sad, sad news to hear of your passing. You were a vibrant funny person who I have had the pleasure to work with and be around.
Your memory will live on in the hearts of all the people that have the privilege to know you.
Rest well x
Amie, we became good friends over the last few years and what a good friend you were to have: loyal, witty and lived life to the full; I miss you so much already. As a colleague you were the best: inspirational, passionate and always on hand with a cuppa. I will make sure Charlie treasures the book you gave him and whenever we share a story I will be thinking of you. You were a special person Amie and I feel blessed to have had you in my life. You will always be in my thoughts. Lots of love always xxx
A professional privilege to have known Amie and her peers on the Teaching Leaders cohort. An uncompromising belief in children and a fantastic ambassador for NET. Thoughts especially with her family, friends and colleagues / pupils. Thank you Amie for serving children and doing so with an infectious passion. Sean and team
It breaks my heart to write this. Amie you were a breath of fresh air and ray of sunshine within our academy. You brought light whenever you entered the room and will continue to do so through all the hearts you've touched. You will be forever missed and my thoughts are with your beautiful family at this time xxx
I left Norton Primary quite a few years ago now, I've graduated through KS3, and going towards my GCSEs, but I couldn't have arrived to the place I am without a TA like you. I remember you teaching me ICT in Miss Pickering's room in Year Five (randomly), and I remember you being so happy and funny. I've always been in denial that someone I have, or had, such a brilliant connection with, can just be taken from me; how wrong was I? We'll find justice, we'll find remembrance, we'll find love. Thank you for everything you've done; your sacrifices, your help, your smile. Because of you and the NPA staff, I aced my SATs, ended up in first set in NSA, and am on my way to success. I will devote my success to you, and I'll fight for justice for you.
- Harley Clarke, and the rest of the Clarke family.
Amie, you are truly loved by all who knew you and will be a huge loss for so many. Thank you for being the one to welcome me with open arms when I started NPA. You were the best NQT bud. Always motivating and encouraging me and sorting me out when I didn’t have a clue what to do in year 5 😂 You truly are one of a kind and an amazing, naturally talented teacher and mother. You will be talked about by your pupils for years to come . My thoughts and love are with your family. Sleep well and see you soon❤️
Beautiful, caring and with a lust for life, you have touched the lives of so many. As a dedicated, inspirational teacher you invested in every single one of your pupils and you will always be such a significant part of their primary school journey. We shed heartwarming tears in Joshi’s parents’ evenings because you recognised his potential and more importantly you enabled him to recognise his potential and go on to achieve it. Your passion for reading was infectious and this legacy will remain in our NPA family, always. Our thoughts are with your loved ones. You have been taken from us too soon, and it will take time for us to heal but we will heal together. Forever in our school, forever in our hearts. “If I had Wings”... time to fly high gorgeous, with all our love, The Loftys ❤️
Amie, you were an amazing, inspiring woman who I had the privilege of working with as part of our NPA family. You filled our school with kindness, enthusiasm, a HUGE love for reading & lots of cups of tea! Things will be very different without you around, but I know you will live on in so, so many ways! Keep shining bright, thinking of you always! Lots of Love Nic x 💖
Amie, your dedication, enthusiasm and creativity had a massive impact on children’s lives not only at NA but as far as us here in Bolton. For the short time we knew you we are grateful and you will always be remembered. Our thoughts are with your family, friends and colleagues.
Not only fantastic teacher with a passion for education and getting the best for her students but a lovely person who was a credit to work with. RIP Amie, thoughts with all family and friends.
Amie, words can not express how much we are all going to miss your beautiful smile, bubbling personality and your dedicated passion towards teaching. Your NPA family will keep your memory alive, we will share with the children some special stories and talk amongst our selves about all the fun nights out we had and the strange but funny chats in the staffroom!! You are an absolute inspiration , a generous, kind warm hearted young lady who focused on nothing but your family and career. I have known you for 6+ years and that has been a privilege and an honour.
Amie, you have left a big hole that will never be replaced. Your smile, determination and kindness I will never forget, you will always be in my thoughts. Spread those wings now Amie and fly high xx
I have searched for the right words and still they will not come. In this case they are just not enough. I will miss you so much. You were not only a colleague but a friend and we bonded over our love of reading. You were always giving me new recommendations and I will forever remember you stood at the front with your class novel in your hands.
You were a fantastic teacher and always so positive. Without a doubt you made such an impact on the children and school. It just won't be the same without you.
I promise I will look after the library for you with the same passion you had and try and recreate our ideas.
Miss you always Amie
Amie, You were an amazing teacher and also a great friend. Born to teach, your enthusiasm, energy and drive were infectious. You brought out the best in so many people - children and adults - myself included. Outside of school your heart was with your beautiful family and friends who I know will all be feeling your loss immensely. I can’t say goodbye Amie, because I still feel you in my heart, so I will just say “till we meet again”. Fly high my lovely, Lou xx
Amie, I can’t put in to words how much I will miss you so I thought this poem would help express the great sadness in my heart.
For a second you were flying
Like you always wanted to
Now you’ll fly forever
In skies of azure blue
We’ll see your smile in every ray
Of sunshine after rain
And hear the echo of your laughter
Over all the pain
The world’s a little quieter now
The colours have lost their hue
The birds are singing softly
And our hearts are missing you
Each time we see a little cloud
Or a rainbow soaring high
We’ll think of you and gently
Wipe a tear from our eye
Gone but never ever forgotten!
P.s I hope you like your reading display xxx
I only knew you for a short time Amie, but you were a lovely, genuine person with an infectious personality.
Miss Linton had the most amazing positive impact on my daughter last year in year 6. Upon the few times i emailed her whilst the pressure of SATS took place, she responded professionally and with compassion. Parents evenings bursted with positivity and I knew how proud she also was of my daughter. She championed for her success and learning. I knew my daughter was in great hands and as a parent gave me confidence, reassurance and as a family we felt truly supported.
I hope those who loved and knew her find some comfort in your memories of her.
Miss Linton you were my teacher for 2 year (y5 and y6) you brought me as far as I am now in education and I’m very thankful for that. You went to soon you and are sadly missed by millions of pupils, staff and parents. You were a lovely inspirational teacher who brought a smile on peoples faces as they went home from school. Heaven gained another lovely angel 👼rip never forgotten xxxx
Lots of love and sadness from Freya and family ❤️👼xxx
Amie, I will miss your smile, energy and kindness. Your limitless enthusiasm and passion to get us all reading!!!
You inspired everyone around you, and were so loved.
No words can describe how much you will be missed. xxx
Amie touched the hearts of so many pupils, the children at Frederick Nattrass spoke so fondly of her. Amie's enthusiasm and passion to teach was inspiring. She was very special and we are so thankful to have known her.
Amie we all know what an amazing teacher you were and how much the children loved you. You were also such a genuine friendly lovely person that has left us far too soon. In the words of William Cullen Bryant “And we wept that one so lovely should have a life so brief.” Amie we shouldn’t being saying goodbye so I’m just going to “See you later.” Rest in peace fly high xxx
shocked and stunned at your passing Amie. You were great with the kids and had real passion for your profession. I'm devastated for your family and all who knew you. Rest well. Jon
It was a privilege to work with such an enthusiastic and passionate teacher. You were a true shining light amongst us all. Your dedication to both the children and your colleagues was second to none. Everytime I pick up a book to share with the children, you will be in my thoughts and missed every day. You will be forever in our hearts Amie x
I only knew you briefly Amie, but in that time I learnt quickly that you were a shining star. Only last week I was describing you to the DCEO as someone who had real talent, creativity, and drive and that you were someone to watch out for. So sad. X
with a very heavy heart I want to wish your family and friends our deepest condolences you are 1 in a million and my children benefited immensely from having you as their teacher and will be greatly missed but will always hold very fond memories of you and the excellent teaching/friendship brandon had I hope your family find peace you will be missed! By everyone that knew you.
Amie, a bright spark, a breath of fresh air and a true teacher at heart. Your enthusiasm was infectious, your character unique and your journey had just began.
Amie had passion, enthusiasm and talent and we were all very lucky to work with her. She made a difference!
You will be so missed Amie. Our thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
Deeply saddened by the loss of such a lovely young teacher. She seen the best in all her pupils, and helped both my girls but especially Charlotte. Charlotte is devastated, as are all of us.
Sleep tight Mrs Linton you will never be forgotten and will be missed greatly. Love and best wishes for your family.
Love the Frost family xxx
I never met Amie but I have seen how her loss has impacted on so many. My heartfelt condolences go to her family, friends, pupils, colleagues and all who knew her. It is always very difficult to lose someone but to lose someone in such tragic circumstances is even more heartbreaking x
Although we never met you, your enthusiasm, dedication and passion has made a difference to us down here in Halifax through your work. We know you'll be missed.
From all of us at Mount Pellon.
I had the privilege of seeing Aime as a TA and watch her develop into one of the most skilled teachers I have seen. She was so dedicated to her pupils. Her love of reading was infectious and I know she passed this on to all of her pupils. She had such high expectations of herself and this was reflected in the amazing work she did. She has left a lasting legacy; I know her pupils will speak of her as an inspiration in the years to come. Sincere condolences to her family, pupils and colleagues. Aime, we will miss you so much.
It was a total pleasure to get to know you during our teacher training and then get to work with you over the last few months. You are such an inspiration and will be hugely missed by all. Xx
There are no words that satisfactorily express how much Amie will be missed. Such an amazing teacher and a wonderful young lady. As a trust, we were so lucky to benefit from her talent and enthusiasm. The children in Norton Primary were blessed to have her in the academy, but her work, her contributions, benefited many more across the trust. Often when you interview people for a teaching post, they will say that they want to make a difference. Well Amie, a difference you certainly made! Forever in our hearts and thoughts.
Although I only got to know you a short time ago, it was a pleasure for me to have had the opportunity to work with such an inspirational and highly regarded teacher. It was obvious the children adored you and that you were a phenomenal teacher. You will be sadly missed. Mrs Dyer x
Amie, you have left such amazing memories for children and staff. I was looking forward to the new role you had just been promoted to and the amazing things I know you would have achieved for the children you so passionately cared for - this was so clear to see.XXX
Your gone now but not forgotten I can't say this you your face but I know you can hear me I'll see you again you never really left I feel you walk beside me I know I will see you again I'm so blessed to have known you in my life xx God bless always be your caretaker Mr A.x
There are no words for just how much I will miss you Amie. You were truly amazing and touched my heart more than you will ever know. I would sit in awe in your classroom as you skilfully crafted the learning so every child could achieve no matter what their barrier was. I only wish you knew just how good you were. Life at Norton Primary will take some adjusting to without you there ... to be honest I don’t think we will ever get over it.
