What the school offers its staff

Frederick Bird is a large 3/4 form entry, spacious, well-resourced Primary school serving the Hillfields community of Coventry. Our committed staff team are always looking to do more to genuinely promote the life chances of our children.

We are currently in the process of joining Inspire Education Trust who have been supporting us with school improvement from the wider Teaching & Learning team since November 2022. We are very excited about this new partnership and can already see the difference working alongside the Inspire team. With our Ofsted inspection being very recent and the fact we are moving into a Trust, we now have at least 3 years to continue to develop to secure at least ‘Good’ at our next inspection.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and suitably qualified Teaching Assistant to join our friendly, supportive team. Working with Teachers and Leaders across the school, the successful candidate will support the development and education of our children, including those who have special physical, emotional and educational needs.
