  • Small class sizes, with TA support
  • A challenging and stimulating place to work
  • Staff who are committed, friendly and are willing to go that extra mile
  • Delightful children who are ready to learn and are supported by the whole school community
  • A well-planned curriculum with a broad range of resources saving on teacher time, but with the freedom to use your professional skills to adapt and bring the curriculum alive.
