As a school we are completely dedicated to providing a holistic approach to learning with a team of highly motivated and caring education professionals who want nothing but the best for each and every child.

OFSTED (April 2018) reported that the:
‘school is a very caring and inclusive community.
Leaders rightly pride themselves on ensuring that pupils are well supported
and ready to learn. All staff, including members of the therapeutic team,
work hard to support pupils’ personal development’. 

We employ our own Specialist Teaching Assistants for high-quality interventions and there may be opportunities to move to this role within the school. 

Our children know exactly what they are looking for in a Teaching Assistant:

  • “Someone who listens and includes us all”.
  • “ Someone who doesn’t mind mistakes because that’s how we learn”.
  • “ Someone who tells us what we need to do next in order to improve”.
  • “Someone who makes learning fun”.

At Whitley Park we don’t just teach, we enable our children to learn the skills to become independent lifelong learners, enabling them to flourish and enjoy success in a world full of opportunities.
