Teaching Personnel are currently looking to appoint a teaching assistant on a long term basis (at least one term) to work on a 1:1 basis with a child in Y4 who has funded support for his learning needs and behaviour.

The Head teacher in school has commented that ‘the boy is very polite and hard working, but does need to be kept within strict routines as this can affect his behaviour.

The school has recently received a GOOD Ofsted grading in a full inspection- With the behaviour of the children and leadership being mentioned as the driving force behind the high standards of attainment in school. The school is located within a challenging catchment area, and the majority of children do arrive at school working below expected levels.
