Our Head Girl and Head Boy said:

“We are looking for a teacher who will create the best learning experience possible. They will help the children and teach fun lessons. It is important that they are a good role model who will inspire the future children. They must make sure that children’s voices are heard. They need to be kind-hearted, funny and entertaining whilst doing a serious job. They need to laugh and not be boring because this makes the children want to come back! They need to laugh at their own mistakes. They should follow our school values. Please see our personalised message to you on our school website.”
