Eastrop Infant School and Nursery is a two-form entry school for children aged from 2 to 7 years old. We work very closely with Southfield Junior School and there will be opportunities to work with colleagues at both schools for training, networking and information sharing. We share many families so the close relationship between schools is hugely important to us.
We are one of the founding schools of Grove Learning Trust, an aspirational, supportive trust keen to work collaboratively with others. Other schools in our trust are Southfield Junior School, Wroughton Infant School, Wroughton Junior School, Oakhurst Primary School, Peatmoor Primary School, Millbrook Primary School and Shaw Rdge Primary School.
At Eastrop Infant School & Nursery we work to ensure that no child is left behind and that the unique identity of our school is protected, celebrated and valued for the contribution we make to ensuring children have the best education and experiences. We also passionately believe that by working together with other schools, the children are able to have a better quality of education that all children benefit from and where no child is left behind.
The role of Class Teacher is ideal for someone who is a team player, has good communication skills and is flexible and organised. The successful applicants will need to use their initiative to ensure the good progress of all pupils in their care.
