An introduction to Farmilo Primary School and Nursery

Farmilo Primary school currently have 255 pupils on roll aged 3 to 11.  We are a high achieving school with the majority of pupils achieving Age related expectations in Reading, Writing, Maths and GPS at the end of Key Stage 2; in addition, children make good progress in all areas of the curriculum through high quality teaching.

The area of Pleasley on the outskirts of Mansfield, within which the school sits is currently under major development with new houses being built.  Numbers continue to rise due to the good reputation of the school with many children travelling from out of the catchment area.

Our most recent Ofsted in September 2017 graded the school as still being a Good school. This is an achievement that we are all very proud of and will continue to strive forward and build on this further.

We are recognised within the Local Authority for our Partnership work and have supported some schools with developing teaching across the year groups including the Foundation Stage. We also support other schools with Leadership & Management strategies to improve attainment. We have recently joined a collaboration with 3 other local primary schools where we intend to build on the quality of teaching and learning by sharing good practise.

Gilthill Primary School (with Maths) 

Holgate Primary & Nursery School 

Do you have what it takes to inspire and motivate our children? Do you feel ready to be part of an extremely exciting opportunity within Nottinghamshire? Then read on …

HOLGATE PRIMARY AND NURSERY SCHOOL in Hucknall is looking for a School Direct Trainee. As part of this position, you will experience all aspects of the Primary Curriculum across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Our children are looking for us to find them a highly committed individual who has the desire and potential to become an outstanding teacher. You will be working alongside a professional and hard-working collaboration team at Holgate Primary and our partner school Sutton Road Primary. The successful applicant will need to be enthusiastic, inspirational and an excellent team player who is able to demonstrate good communication skills and flexibility in supporting partnership working with different members of our staff.

Your application should demonstrate you:

  • Truly enjoy working with children and strive to be the best you can be.
  • Have high expectations of yourself and of the people you work with.
  • Are well organised and demonstrate a real commitment to team work.
  • Are reflective of your own practice and are prepared to take risks.
  • Believe learning needs to be enjoyable and exciting in order to ensure accelerated progress for all.
  • Are prepared to be accountable for ensuring you secure high quality provision.

In return we offer you...

  • A fantastic opportunity to work within a well-established collaboration within Nottinghamshire.
  • Excellent Continual Professional Development opportunities that will support you ‘growing’ in the direction you would like to aim for.
  • An array of resources to enhance your provision including a brand new school building.
  • An experienced and extremely supportive team of staff across two collaborated schools who are passionate about working hard (and playing hard too!)
  • Some truly inspirational children of whom we are all very proud; they make the schools an absolute pleasure to be part of.

Holgate Primary & Nursery School previously consisted of a Junior School Building and an Infant School & Nursery Building which opened in 1951, both of which were single story buildings and housed on the same site. Up until the end of August 2014 the two schools were separate schools. The new Primary School and Nursery opened in September 2014 with the amalgamation of the former Annie Holgate Junior and Annie Holgate Infant Schools and we were extremely fortunate to move into our new school building in January 2016.

Both schools within the collaboration are geographically 9 miles (20-minute drive) apart and serve very similar catchments. Due to this we have become more securely linked in our planning, provision and monitoring to ensure support at all levels is able to be provided as and where it is needed to secure improvements and benefit both schools’ future growth. Not only does this provide a fantastic opportunity to quality assure all we do together, but it also supports workload and more efficient use of staff expertise than would be possible in a school working in isolation.

Things are already moving at a fast pace improving teaching and learning within the schools in the collaboration and this will be an absolute priority to continue to improve further on.

We feel we offer a supportive, friendly and collaborative staff to work alongside, a well-resourced and vibrant atmosphere to work in and some very special and wonderful young people to teach who we personally feel very privileged to work with and would not swap for the world!

You will be working in a middle-sized Primary & Nursery School, and will be placed in either Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2.  A supportive, experienced, and hard-working staff team will find opportunities to support and encourage you through your training year.  As a school, we believe that every individual is valued and makes a valuable contribution to school and we aim to ensure that every member of our community strives to be the very best that they can be – whether this is in fulfilling their academic potential, or experiencing the wider aspects of school life.  We promote tolerance and respect for others and are fully inclusive at all levels, believing that every child is entitled to engage with the life in their community-based school.  We work hard to ensure that our children learn how to become accountable for their own actions and also how to recognise the need to support others with theirs, so that they are prepared for the challenges and choices they will meet throughout their life.   

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?

An introduction to Jacksdale Primary & Nursery School

Jacksdale Primary & Nursery School is a middle-sized school, with a nursery which offers up to 30 hours provision, with wraparound care.  We have a one form entry in F2 and Key Stage 1, progressing to 2 form entry at Key Stage 2 as we have intakes from local infant schools.  Currently, we have 231 pupils on roll, including nursery. 

Our school is situated in the ex-mining village of Jacksdale, which sits on the border between Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, with the majority of our pupils coming from the immediate catchment area (though we are seeing an increase in the number of pupils enrolling from Derbyshire).  Our cohorts are predominantly from white, working class backgrounds and this in itself brings challenges on a local level – it is imperative that the British values of tolerance and respect are embedded so that our children are able to engage in the wider world.

Attainment on entry to Foundation is significantly below average, and our academic results have fluctuated in the past 3 years, though with increased opportunities for CPD and quality first teaching, the impact on pupil’s progress and attainment is increasing rapidly.  This was particularly evident from our reported results for EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 results in July 2017.   23% of our pupils are in receipt of Pupil Premium funding and we have seen the positive impact of using relevant and timely interventions to enable this vulnerable group to achieve the equivalent outcomes, and at times out-perform their peers, in both progress and attainment.

We have strong links within the local community and try to engage with as many stakeholders as possible – establishing links with the local church, businesses, library, and participating in community-based events.  We are currently seeking active engagement in local sporting events and this is an area in which we hope to achieve more success.  We work in close collaboration with our family of schools and with the wider school community – working alongside a number of schools from across the region to guarantee quality assurance through assessment. 

Over the last 3 years, Jacksdale Primary & Nursery School have provided teacher training placements for Nottingham Trent University, Bishop Grosseteste University and Derby University.  We also work alongside West Notts College to provide opportunities for teacher assistant training.  Of those students who have completed their placements with us, all have been successful in gaining teaching posts with immediate effect – one of the students is currently employed at our school and refused employment opportunities which arose before our vacancy so she could start her career as a member of the Jacksdale team.

Larkfields Infant School 

What are we looking for?

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

In general, we are looking for people who have the potential to become outstanding teachers and school leaders of the future. You should be committed to inclusive and comprehensive education and believe passionately in the difference education can make to young peoples’ lives. You should possess genuine enthusiasm for the subjects you will teach and be able to communicate your understanding to others. Some experience of working with young people will be an advantage.

An introduction to Larkfields Infant School

Larkfields Infant School is a very popular infant school, located in the heart of a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Nottingham near to Junction 26 of the M1 motorway. It is an open plan school with six teaching areas set in extensive grounds. Numbers have risen steadily over the past few years and in September our number on roll, 180 pupils, will represent full capacity.

Larkfields Infant School provides a rich and varied curriculum with lots of opportunities for children to learn and experience success in many ways. We believe that Larkfields is a school where children enjoy their learning, develop well socially and emotionally, and make good progress across the whole curriculum. Historically, pupils came to the school attaining in line with or above national and local average. However, over the last five years the majority of the cohort have come in attaining in line and below the national expectation and this continues to follow a downward trend. We are beginning to see a change in the characteristics of a typical Larkfields child both in their academic and social skills. Our dedicated and hardworking team is devoted to providing the best possible education for the children. They support one another and assist each other with professional development; this experienced team have the capacity to nurture new trainees.

We have joined MITTA for the forthcoming academic year and are looking forward to welcoming our first trainee teacher this September into FS2.

The school has not had an Ofsted inspection since September 2007 when we were graded ‘outstanding’ in all areas. Perhaps the quote from one of the parents still best sums up our school; ‘Larkfields is a fantastic school, because it’s friendly, well run and committed to every child.’

An introduction to Muskham Primary School

The school accommodates 209 pupils with a catchment area covering a large rural area including North Muskham and the surrounding villages of South Muskham, Bathley, Little Carlton and Cromwell.  The school enjoys strong community links with the local play group, out of school club and, although not a church school, St Wilfrid’s in North Muskham.

The ethos of the school is centred upon the motto “Wisdom and Caring”.  This motto epitomises the entire staffs’ genuine commitment to coupling high academic expectation and achievement with a whole-team dedication to the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.  Our children have remarkably high potential and respond well to the wide variety of learning opportunities presented to them.  Their families rightly hold high aspirations for their development and achievement and are keen to be involved in their children’s learning.  The role of each class teacher is vital in order to successfully achieve the shared aims of the school community.

We pride ourselves on being proactive and effectively utilising the latest developments in teaching and learning. We share our own expertise and harness those of others within the local professional community, working closely with the partnerships that we have forged with the Tuxford Collaboration; the Minster Teaching School Alliance and Together for Newark.

2018-19 Secondary School Places Available

Elizabethan Academy

An introduction to The Elizabethan Academy:

When we converted to academy status in 2012, we were worried that joining a chain or a federation would mean the loss of many things that make The Elizabethan such a vibrant and unique place to work and learn.  This is why we chose to become a stand-alone academy.

Partnership working is important to us, and we have contributed to – and benefited from – three Teaching School Alliances.  We also have very close links with our Family of Schools, and academic and social transition from primary to secondary is carefully planned and monitored.

We are an 11-18 school; Years 7 – 11 are based on the Hallcroft Road site, with Years 12 and 13 educated at Retford Post 16, a shared provision between The Elizabethan, Retford Oaks and North Notts College.  Both sites enjoy modern, purpose built facilities.

Ofsted graded us “good” in 2011 and again in 2014; however, this is not how we measure success.  We believe that education is not just about preparation for exams, and we have a comprehensive Student Leadership Programme which supports students in developing vital skills such as team work, confidence and resilience.

Rushcliffe School

An introduction to Rushcliffe School

Rushcliffe School really is a successful, vibrant and friendly place for pupils and staff alike. We have a simple mission statement 'everyone will be given the chance to shine brightly' and this underpins everything we do at the school. We seek out any opportunity to showcase the talents and abilities of our pupils: giving everyone the chance to shine brightly means that happiness and success are much more likely to follow. 

A great many of our pupils achieve high academic standards and we ensure they are given the chance to stretch themselves and aim for outstanding success. For many years Rushcliffe has been one of the highest achieving schools in the region at GCSE and a high percentage of Rushcliffe Sixth Form students move on to study at the most prestigious universities. We are also very proud of the work of our dedicated team working with pupils who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities; they ensure that pupils of all abilities and needs achieve well and develop the skills they need for fulfilled and successful lives. 

There is so much more to Rushcliffe than outstanding examination success. We believe that for a young person to truly shine brightly they should be encouraged to get involved in the Arts, to enjoy and perhaps excel at sport, to raise money for charity, to visit other countries, to produce magazines, to read widely and become well rounded, thoughtful and happy individuals: Rushcliffe is an experience that will equip pupils for life. 

I'd advocate visiting Rushcliffe in order to see what happens here on a daily basis it's a remarkable place.
