Further details about the role

The Post

We are looking for a full time teacher to teach in one of our classes. There are four part-time classes in the Nursery school and three forms of entry in the Infants school. Each teacher is supported by a full time teaching assistant.

The Federation

Thomas Wall Nursery and Robin Hood Infants federated in September 2007. We share a site and in joining together, we have created a very large early years unit including an assessment unit for nursery-aged children with complex communication difficulties.

We are situated near to the centre of Sutton in an area consisting mainly of owner occupied homes, but with pockets of severe social deprivation.

There are 394 children on roll, housed in twelve classrooms. Children are well motivated, polite and very communicative. Positive attitudes and self-esteem are important features of our school ethos. We have many awards and accreditations including PQM, Primary Sports Mark and two excellence awards for high attainment. Our end of Key Stage 1 attainment is very high and we work hard to maintain this. We have a friendly and successful Federation.

Relationships between staff, children and parents are very positive and behaviour is good. We are well supported by a very effective governing body. The whole staff is committed to equal opportunities and there is a strong team spirit. We teach a broad, creative curriculum that teachers and their assistants plan and review within their teams. There is good support for new members of staff, excellent opportunities for Professional Development and generous PPA time for teachers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what our school is about. Further detail can be found on our school website: www.twn-rhi.org.uk.

I very much look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely

Mel Bracey

Federation Headteacher
