School Direct – Entry Profiles

What we are looking for:

In this School Direct Trainee position, you will learn to become an enthusiastic, creative and skillful primary teacher.

You will be working in a small infant and pre-school, and will be placed in either the Foundation Stage or Key Stage 1. A passionate and hard-working staff team will take every opportunity to support and encourage you through your training year. The school emphasises the development of the whole child, and whilst it is proud of its improving academic track record, it places great importance on ensuring all members of the school community are valued, nurtured and cared-for.

You will be a member of the newly established consortium of North Midlands schools working with the Minster Teaching School Alliance and Nottingham University, and as such, you will be a member of a tutor group and participate in a wide range of activities offered by both the MTSA and the Consortium.

Why train with us?

All Saints CE Infant School is a smaller than average infant school, with 88 pupils on roll aged from 4 to 7 years. In February 2014, we opened a Pre-School in the community centre belonging to our church, All Saints, and we now offer places to children aged from two years.

Our school is situated in the ex-coalfield village of Huthwaite, and all our pupils come from the immediate area, which is one of socio-economic deprivation. We are increasingly over-subscribed. Attainment on entry to Reception is generally well-below average, but pupils leave our school at roughly average levels. Our academic results have shown consistent improvement over the last three years and pupil progress is outstanding, but we are not complacent and invest a great deal in continuing professional development and in educational research with local universities. We are among the first schools in Nottinghamshire to work with two year old children and are in the process of evaluating the impact of this.

As a Voluntary Aided Church of England School, we have strong links with our church, other local church schools and the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. Our commitment to partnership working led to our formal collaboration with Selston CE Infant and Nursery School in September 2014. This partnership is strong and evolving all the time, enabling us to build capacity, particularly among the staff teams. The two teams work effectively together and support one another very well. This has enabled us to offer even greater support to trainee teachers in each school.

Over the last three years, All Saints Infants and Selston Infants have jointly hosted four trainee teachers through the SCITT programme (School Centred Initial Teacher Training). Of these, one completed the course with a grade of ‘outstanding’ whilst the other three were graded strong ‘goods’. All those seeking full-time employment as newly qualified teachers were successful in gaining posts for the following academic year (3 out of 4). One trainee was employed at All Saints Infant School.
