• a dedicated leadership team, who are committed to supporting and developing colleagues; 

• excellent professional development and promotion opportunities; 

• smaller class sizes to facilitate rapid progress across the curriculum.  

You will be: 

• passionate about teaching and learning;

 • an innovative and reflective practitioner who is keen to learn; 

• positive, with a ‘can do’ attitude; 

• committed to improving the life chances of every child.
