Contribute to the overall ethos, work and aims of the school

In return you will receive:

Excellent professional development as part of the school team and be given the opportunity to inspire and impact on others
A welcoming environment that is supported by committed, dedicated colleagues
A school which is reflective and strives for continual improvement
A supportive Governing Body who are committed to bringing around rapid improvement and ensuring the well-being of all our pupils

We are committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. This post is working in regulated activity.
