    The school is well staffed and has been able to attract professional and experienced people to lead and implement the first phase of its development.  As a growing school we expect to need to recruit staff regularly over the coming years.  As well as requiring specific experience and qualifications for individual roles, we expect all staff to have a high standard of English and mathematics, and to share our commitment to ensuring that every child makes the maximum progress in both academic learning and personal development.  All new staff are subject to full reference checks and will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to ensure that they are suitable to work with children.  Most vacancies will be advertised on this page, as well as in local and, where appropriate, national forums.


    Volunteering

    We welcome requests for volunteering in school, from those who simply wish to contribute to the growing sense of community in and around the school and academy, and from those seeking school experience prior to applying for jobs or training.  Volunteers can be deployed on an occasional basis or can assist specific classes or activities more regularly.  As part of the vetting process for volunteering, those who may have close or regular contact with pupils will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to ensure that they are suitable to work with children.   Our expectations for visitors and volunteers are laid out in an information leaflet which can be dowloaded below.
