We are an outwardly facing school in a beautiful part of the country and have strong links with our local community as a Rights Respecting School.  We are committed to managing staff workload and have a Staff Wellbeing and Stress Reduction Working Group.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.  We accept applications from all potential candidates including NQT, main scale and UPS colleagues.  Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Head of Design & Technology Faculty, Mr Stuart Woodhall woodhalls@colfox.dorset.sch.uk or 01308 422291.  Visits to the school are also warmly accepted.
