We value our teachers and ensure they are provided with the necessary resources, support and CPD that will enable them to flourish. This includes:


  • weekly PPA with your year group colleague (in addition, we also provide regular assemblies for preparation time);
  • ongoing CPD within Staff Meetings (e.g. Child Protection, SMART training, Chrome Book training, coaching);
  • a laptop;
  • an IPad Air;
