  • Have high expectation for yourself and your pupils

  • Have a commitment to helping all our children learn the curriculum and develop into well rounded young people
  • Have desire to go that extra mile and make a difference
  • Have a good understanding of the national curriculum and a willingness to engage in further professional training and development
  • Be open to working as part of a team to improve outcomes for all pupil

Further details about the role

About us:

We have over 400 children on roll and share our school building and grounds with a 52-place playgroup. Our staff are a mixture of experienced and newer teachers and leaders working in close partnership with our amazing team of support staff. Our grounds and school building are well maintained, with many breakout spaces for learning including a separate PPA room for teachers. Our children access their learning in a variety of ways and make use of the latest technologies; for example, children have access to over 150 Chromebooks and over 100 iPads. This provides numerous opportunities for effective learning to take place.

We take staff development seriously with weekly opportunities for teachers and teaching support staff to receive current training. Many of our staff undertake additional training e.g. NPQs and the school supports them to do this. Our staff room is a relaxing environment where staff can hopefully escape from the hustle and bustle of class and everyday school life.
