Organisation is key to monitor the progress of our pupils, and you will maintain an up-to-date knowledge and understanding of teaching areas and key intervention support for our children, provide clear goals, constructive feedback, and maintain progression records.

·       A teacher with a flair and passion for primary education who will embrace working and teaching within our ‘family’ – and bring new ideas and practices to engage both the children and the staff. 

·       An individual who will truly add value to our school and strive to think outside of the box. 

·       An individual that can work well on their own, but know when to ask for help and seek guidance openly.
