‘The children investigate, explore, and independently test out their ideas to find answers to problems set. Their interest in these tasks is sustained. They clearly enjoy learning.’
EYFS Ofsted March 2018.
Governors wish to appoint an enthusiastic practitioner to join the team of The Bemrose School. The role would be to work with our established EYFS team and we will look at skills sets of candidates to determine suitability in line with the needs of our children.
We are looking for a teaching assistant with energy, vision and rigour who is undaunted by the occasional setback.
Are you the sort of practitioner that:
  • Is determined that all children will succeed, no matter their circumstance or background?
• Will instil a belief in children that they can achieve? •
Would like to be part of a team that give all children an education that enriches their lives to become lifelong learners.
  • Would one day take part in creating wanted posters for a missing teddy and the next day dress up as a superhero supporting our PSHCE curriculum!
‘There is much joy in this school. Pupils’ value their teachers, and the rich and diverse community in which they learn. Pupils’ behaviour in Key stages 1 and 2 is exemplary. Pupils’ thrive in this highly inclusive school.” Ofsted March 18.
