With our new nursery opening in August 2021, this is an exciting opportunity for two Early Years Assistants to join our team in setting up our new nursery. The successful candidates will be enthusiastic with excellent interpersonal and communication skills and will share our passion for ensuring the highest possible quality of learning for our young children.
Frogston Primary School is a new non-denominational school established in August 2020. Our P1 pupils are currently based in Valley Park Community Centre. We will be moving to our new school building within the new housing development to the south of Frogston Road East later this term. The school is part of the Gracemount High School cluster, along with Gracemount Primary School. The school will be an integral part of the community both educationally and socially. The school will have enough room for 420 pupils, alongside an early learning and childcare facility and inspiring outdoor spaces. The school is being designed to reflect the Council's new "Vision for Playgrounds". Our nursery will have capacity for 80 pupils and will offer a mix of term time and full year places for 3-5 year olds and eligible 2s.
