Further details about the role

Cultural Fit

Our school is developing all the time. We have implemented a curriculum whose drivers are possibilities, community and independence. We are a school at the heart of our community, and we feel it is important for our children to have a developed sense of their locality and be proud to be part of it.

Our curriculum and our pedagogic principles underpin the school culture.

  • We believe we can all improve, children learn from staff as well as from each other.
  • We believe in the potential of all children to learn
  • We engage in deep thought about challenge and quality
  • We provide opportunities to practise skills that have been learnt so that over time automaticity is achieved.
  • We sequence all learning in to small steps with children’s starting points taken in to account
  • We have an openness to feedback
  • We develop worked models that communicate quality and success
  • We take ratio in to account where over time learners take on more of the learning load
  • We believe that children should be given feedback at all points of the learning journey

We focus single-mindedly upon providing the best teaching we possibly can for our children. If you want to become an even better teacher than you are now and want to work hard on your practice, thenthiswill be the school for you.

Working in a school where you are not aligned with the culture can be a miserable experience. So…we both need to have alignment if you come to work here!
