    • Be resilient, use your initiative and be flexible to adapt to pupils’ changing needs.
    • Work collaboratively with dynamic, forward thinking staff with high aspirations for our children.
    • Show commitment to your own professional development and be willing to work flexibly and adapt to the needs of the school and its pupils.

 The Schools offer a caring, friendly and welcoming environment and are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of their children.
