‘The school is a caring and inclusive community with strong levels of respect, trust and co-operation between staff, pupils and parents.’ Estyn July 2019
We are a new two form entry school with an 80 part-time place nursery in north east Cardiff. We welcomed our first Year 6 cohort of pupils in September 2021. In the last few years we have been building and developing our provision and pedagogy in readiness for the new Curriculum for Wales and look forward to being immersed in this innovative new curriculum bespoke for our learners. This is an exciting opportunity for two temporary teachers (one in KS2 and one in early years) to help further shape and develop our school for the future.
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.’
The Headteacher and Governors are seeking to appoint two temporary, hardworking and enthusiastic teachers to work within our FP and KS2 teams. The successful candidates will be able to demonstrate:

• An exciting learning environment with excellent outdoor provision
• a wide range of exciting opportunities for continuing professional development and creating the new curriculum for Wales in our school
• motivated, confident pupils who have a very positive attitude to school and learning
• supportive governors and parents
