The Head teacher is a forward thinking leader who has built a strong community atmosphere in the local area which has helped to improve attendance and behaviour.

The school is smaller than average and has a 30 intake across the Reception class. The children arrive in school working behind expected age related levels. There are also a number of children with behavioural needs and special educational needs.

The working hours are not flexible and you will be expected to work in the KS2 year groups. Potentially, the Head teacher mentioned that the successful candidate will need to be able to work across Year 4 and Year 5.

The school is also connected to a local Diocese and so they are regularly inspected to ensure they are upholding the Christian ethos on a daily basis. You will not have to be a practising Christian but you must be able to following the Curriculum and support the children as they progress through school.

A number of candidates have already worked in this school in the last 18 months. The feedback has been very positive and notably every candidate has passed comment about the support you receive when you work in school.

This role will be pay-rolled through Teaching Personnel and so all vetting must be processed accordingly.
