  • Have the ability to build productive and collaborative relationships

  • Have excellent IT skills

  • Be organised, with excellent attention to detail and be able to work to competing deadlines

  • Understand the need for a culture of safeguarding in all aspects of school business

  • Be versatile and forward thinking


In return we can offer you:

  • A truly child-centred, friendly and holistic school

  • A strong team and school community

  • A safe and nurturing environment for our staff as well as our pupils

  • A supportive and solution focused SLT who are dedicated to school improvement


As well as:

  • Progression pathways

  • Access to an Employee Assistance Programme

  • Comprehensive whole school and individual CPD programme

  • Onsite parking

  • A well-equipped staff room, access to school lunches and a central location with many amenities in a very short walking distance


We all know a picture speaks a thousand words and a visit to St Matthew’s is the only way to understand why you will want to work here. Call Amy Ingleby on 01582 723970 ext 2012 to arrange a visit.
