This is a wonderful opportunity for a colleague to join our thriving and successful school to assist us in achieving even greater success. The school has been through change in recent years including joining the Lighthouse Schools Partnership (LSP) Multi Academy Trust alongside a number of our feeder schools and Gordano and Backwell and Churchill secondary schools. Through this we are developing work of a mutually beneficial nature.

The school has a distinctive charter and ethos which is unashamedly child-centred and emotionally intelligent in the way relationships are managed between staff, parents, students and governors. The school has a House system at the heart of its culture with vertical tutoring as a key facilitator. There are four houses - Bilbie, Hauteville, Moreton and Rodney.
