We have had another successful year and now wish to recruit a new member of staff. The Governors of this happy, friendly and very popular school wish to appoint a Nursery teacher for September 2018. We want really good, kind , caring and committed teachers who love teaching young children and you in turn will love teaching in our school.

The school is very heavily over subscribed, high achieving and very well regarded in the local community it serves.

Our school setting was recently featured in the November 2017 Ofsted Survey "Bold Beginnings" about Early Years provision.

The school is set in peaceful attractive grounds and is very well resourced. This is especially the case in music, sports and ICT with the lastest Touch Screens, suites of iMacs and trolleys of high resolution iPads for every class. Every teacher is provided with the latest MacBook Air and an iPad to help them deliver high quality teaching and learning.

The Nursery itself is a stand alone modern building with extensive outside play areas. Generous non-contact time is provided for a wide variety of music and lots of sporting activities.
