This is an exciting opportunity for a KS2 teacher with a TLR2 for curriculum design and innovation to help shape and develop the school as it grows.
At the beginning of September 2018 we moved into our brand new school and it's really important to us that our new teachers share our commitment to making it a real Community School. Our children all live locally and come from many nationalities. Parents are very supportive of our school and we have incredibly enthusiastic and dedicated staff. Our Estyn Inspection July 2019 said. There is a strong team ethos. All members of staff feel valued and work together well.
