If I am successful in gaining an interview, how will this occur during the current COVID-19 pandemic?
Due to the current situation we may plan to interview remotely using a video call. We would ensure that candidates who were successful in gaining an interview were supported with the technology so that this process is seamless. We will provide you with details of the process with your interview invite.
Our advice would be that those who were successful in gaining an interview should prepare as they would for a face to face and dress smart casual. We will allow plenty of time to ensure that you are able to answer our questions in full and you will not be judged if you are having problems with your technology.
We will leave plenty of opportunity for questions at the end of the interview, and we will spend lots of time talking and unpicking your answers. Please come prepared to share anything you’d like that we didn’t cover, or any questions you have about it. We really appreciate your adaptability in these unprecedented times.

About Shinewater Primary School

Our staff, children and governors would like to offer a very warm welcome to Shinewater Primary School and Little Sunshines Nursery. Shinewater is a vibrant, inclusive and family orientated school with a strong community ethos. We have created a safe, respectful, inclusive, creative and challenging environment that prepares the children to be motivated, independent and positive members of their community.

The Shinewater team is highly dedicated and always goes above and beyond the call of duty to secure excellence in everything we do as we firmly believe that our children deserve the best quality education. We have consistently high expectations and provide experiences that enable the children to meet them.

Shinewater has a creative and forward thinking curriculum that takes children on “learning adventures” that enables them to develop a range of knowledge and skills through the various curriculum subjects and enrichment opportunities. Shinewater employs specialist teachers in Computing, Outdoor Learning, Maths, English and Physical education in order to inspire the children beyond the National Curriculum requirements.

We firmly believe that a valuable education should be centred around the ‘whole child’ in terms of their well-being and academic achievement. Each child is given a range of opportunities to thrive so they make excellent progress and achieve their full potential.

Our School motto is “Together We Shine” and we are proud to be the Headteachers of this enthusiastic community of learners with a fantastic staff team, dedicated governors, supportive parents and happy, engaged children.
