About Buckton Fields:

Buckton Fields joined the Preston Hedges Trust as a brand new, two form entry school in September 2021. Proud of our exceptionally strong links with the community, and with the school’s brilliant neighbouring businesses, these strong links enrich and complement our creative curriculum and core values.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside, we enjoy studying natural beauty at Buckton, not only on our doorstep, but also more broadly as conscious citizens with a love for the world we live in. Our focus is on celebrating every child as an individual; inspiring children to be passionate, empathetic and resilient in everything they do. We are committed to the wellbeing of our children and are determined that every child has their best possible start to school life, experiences an outstanding curriculum, reaches their full potential, and grows to be a happy, confident, well-rounded individual.

About the Role:

Your role will be to ensure that the children you work with are happy, safe, and engaged with creative and innovative learning opportunities. You will support and enable them to reach their full potential socially, emotionally, physically and academically, building confident and resilient young people.

The successful candidates will be excited to master and implement our unique curriculum, to understand our approach to learning, teaching and pedagogy and to work collaboratively with colleagues who are passionate about providing all our children with the best learning experiences possible.

At the heart of our success in delivering the region’s highest standards of education is the Trust-wide commitment to organisational values – One Team, Ambition, Drive and Excellence. People are truly at the heart of all that we do, operating as one team across all areas of the Trust, we have a collective passion to make all our schools excellent.
