Due to its location the school is lucky to sport a diverse mix of pupils, some who have only been in the U.K for a relatively short period of time. Candidates will be required to work with pupils with varying degrees of spoken and written language so need the patience to deliver methods of learning with this in mind.

The school is a two form primary with normally 28 pupils per class. The school was rated as 'Good' by Ofsted in 2010 and now wishes to push towards 'Outstanding' The Senior leadership team are committed to making the school the best possible primary in the area; they can only achieve this by having the best teachers and support staff in place to put in to practice their plans and ideas.
