This is a great time to come and work at our school as we implement a new way of structuring playtime focussed on the needs and interests of the children ensuring that their wellbeing and safety is at the heart of everything we do.


We can offer you:

This is an exciting opportunity to come with us as we embark on our journey to be a beacon school, a hub in the community. We are a good school with a strong aspiration to provide the best education possible for our children. Our forward-looking outlook affords all staff the chance to be creative, collaborative and develop the skills, passions and attributes of all children. A good sense of humour and an appreciation of life and respectful, positive connections are really important to us – do you have these?
