  • The knowledge and skills to identify gaps in pupil progress and meet diverse pupil needs in varied, creative and innovative ways
  • Knowledge, skills and strategies to further develop good and outstanding teaching for the benefit of all pupils

In return, we can offer you:

  • The benefits of an inclusive small school feel in the context of a school that is continuing to evolve
  • A culture which supports creative and quality teaching
  • Pupils with positive attitudes to learning, who are hardworking, caring, resilient and proud to attend their school
  • The support of dedicated, skilled and caring school colleagues and a governing body who are committed to delivering the very best for pupils
  • Parents who are willing to get actively involved in their children’s learning.
