Job summary

Dear Reader,

Our teacher at Whitchurch Primary School is leaving us, for a while, to have a baby after Christmas and we need someone to help us learn until she comes back. We think our school is incredible. It would be great if you wanted to come and teach us. The children at Whitchurch are kind and generous to each other and we are respectful. We hope you’ll come and visit us soon to see how lovely we all are here !

Love from Sebbie, Isla, and Florence.
