  • Can work well with colleagues across the school, the Trust and in our local community;
  • Are organised, thorough and take pride in what our school achieves, by going the extra mile for the children;
  • Are hardworking and resilient;
  • And … have a great sense of humour!

In return, we can offer:

  • A warm, friendly and supportive atmosphere;
  • A dedicated and experienced staff team very well supported by parents and governors;

  • A pleasant and spacious learning environment;

  • A Trust ‘Workload Charter’ to alleviate workload, which includes a Flexi-PPA day, no meetings week and a staff council who listen to the views of our workforce;
  • Opportunities for personal development across three schools in different contexts.
  • Finally, but most importantly, amazing children!
