We welcome applications for this exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and highly motivated class teacher to join our school to cover a period of maternity leave from February 2018 until July 2018. We are an outstanding and inclusive school where staff and children thrive in a wonderfully supportive school community. We are committed to the education of the whole child, and believe that children flourish in an environment in which they feel safe and cared for. In our school, children achieve their full potential happy in the knowledge that they are appreciated for their individuality and their achievements. We achieve high academic standards for all children and believe that this is best accomplished through ambitious teaching that is engaging, innovative and personalised to children’s needs. In order to develop both curiosity and a lifelong love of learning we engage children in learning experiences which motivate and deepen their understanding. We are proud of our innovative and learning centred school.
