We have a One Person Policy at the school. No matter if you are a student in the Entry Class or are the Principal, we believe that we are all of equal worth. Each of us has hopes, dreams, ambitions, strengths and weaknesses. Whether teaching or support staff we all work towards achieving the one school vision.
We value highly skilled staff who are experts within their field, but we also value those who may be new to teaching or their area of expertise who have a wealth of prior experiences, or are young and have a burning passion to help other young people grow and develop as learners.
We value flexibility in staff, particularly those who can contribute their talents in a range of areas across the school, inside and outside the classroom. Currently we are interested in staff who have specialist skills in the following areas;

@TC we believe that the more caring and capable adults modelling positive learning behaviours that students are exposed to in their classes, the better. We strongly encourage student teachers to take placements of 6 months in the school. These graduates work in tandem with our own experienced teachers in the delivery of the curriculum and often team teach to provide greater access to expertise and assistance for our students.
All student teachers and volunteers undergo a screening process, including a Working With Children check, and our existing staff always retain the responsibility for the class. Whilst we do not always have an immediate need for the skills offered we are keen to build our bank of volunteers.
