Thank you for your interest in joining Nether Edge Primary School. This is an excellent opportunity to join a great school and to play a key role in shaping the provision of education for our children.
Nether Edge is a happy, successful, cohesive and ambitious 3-11, two-form entry community school in the south west of Sheffield. We are currently over-subscribed and have approximately 450 pupils. They come from a wide range of diverse backgrounds; whilst the proportion of disadvantaged and SEND pupils is just above the national average.
Children enjoy coming to school, work hard and are exceedingly well behaved.
We employ just over 60 staff. Leaders, teachers and other staff are talented and very committed to the children and our shared mission.
The school site is made up of two large linked Victorian buildings. Pupils and staff work in a well-resourced and well- maintained learning environment. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard and visualiser, and are consistently arranged to support learning. The trust continues to make substantial investment in the school environment and IT each year.
The school is a partner in the Mercia Learning Trust. This a coherent, highly successful and really supportive partnership of six schools (3 primary & 3 secondary) in the south and south west of Sheffield. Pupils currently transfer to either Mercia or King Egbert Secondary Schools, both of which are members of the Trust. Partnership brings unrivalled access to expertise, great practice. CPD and career progression.
I hope you will visit the Trust and school websites, our school and then apply for this exciting and important role.
