Tremorfa Nursery is a friendly, welcoming, diverse, and inclusive nursery school with a strong community spirit that is a hub for families within the community. Our 2019 Estyn Inspection judge our well being and attitudes to learning, teaching and learning and care support and guidance to be excellent, describing the school as “an exciting, safe and happy place…this outstanding provision contributes significantly to the highly positive attitudes that children develop toward learning at a very early age”
As part of a cluster, Tremorfa collaborates well with neighbouring schools, sharing best practice and experiences and has excellent links with a broad range of community partners. We encourage innovative outdoor learning and are fortunate to have a varied outdoor space, well developed Forest School provide numerous and unique learning opportunities across the curriculum. We are a rights’ respecting school and aim to develop pupils in such a way that they understand the world they live in.
As a school we operate a culture of reflective practice and action research, continually seeking ways of developing the school to provide the highest quality provision for our young children and families. Parents are encouraged to participate in the life of the nursery both in their children’s learning and through engaging in activities to promote their own continued self-development and the successful candidate would need to prove their ability to build trusting relationships within our vibrant and diverse community.
It is essential that the successful candidate can demonstrate their appetite for and experience of innovation and can confidently articulate a vision of teaching and learning that incorporates the new Curriculum for Wales. The ability to lead, inspire and motivate staff and pupils to achieve their full potential is essential. We are looking for a commitment to the inclusion of every child and ensuring that all pupils have equal opportunities to access a broad and balanced curriculum.
Our goal is for our children to leave nursery as independent and interdependent learners who are confident, secure individuals, able to demonstrate care and respect for others and to form positive relationships with other children and adults. We are looking for an experienced and empathetic leader who can demonstrate the ability to create strong relationships and who has the vision to enable the partnership between our school, carers and community to continue to thrive.
