An introduction to the Awsworth Primary & Nursery School

Awsworth Primary & Nursery School is situated on the A6096 between Ilkeston and the Eastwood and Kimberley By-pass and is only two miles from Exit 26 of the M1.  The school is a modern building, re-opening in September 2002 as a result of Awsworth Infant & Nursery School and Awsworth Junior School amalgamating.  The school occupies a pleasant site surrounded by a large playing field and hard outdoor play area.  The school serves the close-knit communities of Awsworth, Babbington and Cossall with pupils from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds.  As a popular school we also attract 40% of our pupils from outside the catchment area.

There are currently 295 full-time pupils on roll divided into ten classes in the main school and a Foundation Unit offering 39 places in the morning and 39 in the afternoon for part-time pupils.  There are two dining areas, a hall and two library areas.  The school is wireless throughout and well equipped with a computer suite and a class set of iPads.  The Foundation Unit is a separate building adjacent to the main school.  In addition to the Head Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher there are currently nine other FTE Teachers and a 0.2FTE Teacher with responsibility for Pupil Premium.  They are well supported by a large team of Teaching Assistants.  Our primary aim always is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is underpinned by the core subjects of English and mathematics.  We are also proud of our achievement of two national school awards recognising our commitment to global learning and children’s rights.

The school takes part in a number of competitive and non-competitive, inter-school sports activities.  There is a regular programme of residential visits for pupils in Y3 - Y6, these have included visits to Castleton in Derbyshire, the Isle of Wight, the Lake District and Wales.  All staff also take pupils off the school site for day visits to enhance the curriculum.  There is a strong tradition in the school of a comprehensive range of extra curricular activities.   At the present time the following activities are undertaken at lunchtimes and after school: art, cooking, mindfulness, Zumba, gymnastics, dance and a range of different sports.

The school is at the heart of the village community.  Parents, friends and members of the local community are made welcome and become actively involved in many aspects of school life.  Governors take their responsibilities seriously, taking an active role in the management and life of the school.  Where appropriate they attend training courses, become involved in discussion groups and make visits to keep themselves informed on current issues.  The school’s most recent OFSTED Inspection was in March 2014 with a very successful outcome for the school.  The overall judgement was that Awsworth Primary & Nursery School is a good school.

An introduction to Brierley Forest Primary and Nursery School

We are a busy school with lots of opportunities for children to develop their learning and social skills. We have a wonderful, purpose built school and a fabulous site offering a range of sporting activities and plenty of space to learn and play.

We believe in giving children a stimulating and motivating curriculum and have 3 drivers at the heart of our curriculum; developing independence in learning, broadening children’s understanding of the wider world and maximising the potential of a full range of partnerships.

We are proud to provide an Enrichment Offer for all children in our school that allows them to explore their own interests and talents. The aim of this provision is to open up new opportunities and experiences. The enrichment offer is timetabled to run throughout the school week alongside of our classroom-based learning and offers anything from cooking to climbing. The sessions are provided by motivated members of school staff who are keen to share their own interests and talents with the children. Since implementing the Enrichment Offer, staff have noted how well the children concentrate and engage in lessons when they return to the classroom. The programme changes on a regular basis so there are always new opportunities for the children to discover new talents and interests.

Our children and parents speak highly of our Rainbow Room and Busy Bees, where our Key Stage 1 and 2 nurture provision takes place—a vital part of our offer for our children.

At Brierley Forest Primary and Nursery School our parents are a vital part of the team. As well as working closely with parents to ensure that our children are well supported with their learning at home, we also welcome our parents to a variety of events throughout the year.

Brierley Forest Primary and Nursery School is situated in the Carsic estate, on the outskirts of  Sutton-in-Ashfield town centre.

Holgate Primary & Nursery School (Primary) 

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 a member of the newly established consortium of North Midlands schools working with the Minster Teaching School Alliance (MTSA) 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.

An introduction to Jacksdale Primary 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 225 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 generally below average though the reported assessment data show that the percentage of pupils leaving our EYFS class is generally in line with national expectations.  Our academic results at KS2 have shown an upward trend in the past 3 years, with increased opportunities for CPD and quality first teaching having made a positive impact.   27% 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 have recently become much more active in participating 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.

Over the last 3 years, Jacksdale Primary & Nursery School have provided teacher training placements for Nottingham Trent University Nottingham 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.

 

Selston C of E Infant & Nursery School (Primary)
 

What we are 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 nursery 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. 

Your application should demonstrate that you possess:

  • Effective communication skills
  • A commitment to work hard on the course

An introduction to Selston C of E Infant and Nursery School

Selston CE Infant and Nursery School is a smaller than average infant school, with 57 pupils of school age on roll aged between four and seven years.  In the nursery, we cater for 40 children aged between three and four years in a morning and afternoon session.  We are currently exploring the possibility of working with children from two years of age.

Our school is situated in the ex-coalfield town of Selston.  Only a third of our pupils live in our immediate area, so the majority of our children travel from further afield.   Attainment on entry to Reception is generally in line with the national average, but pupils leave our school well above age-related expectations, showing outstanding progress.  This has resulted in Ofsted awarding us ‘outstanding’ for the last fifteen years.  However, we are not complacent and invest a great deal in continuing professional development and in developing links with other educational institutions in our area. 

As a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School, we have strong links with our church, other local church schools and the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham.  In September 2014, we entered into a formal collaboration with All Saints CE Infant and Pre-School.  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.

An introduction to St Mary Magdalene

St Mary Magdalene CofE Primary School is a small primary school situated in a former coal mining area and is part of the Sutton Centre Family. The school and family deprivation indicator is broadly average and most children are of White British heritage. A growing number of families now speak English as an additional language, or come from minority ethnic groups.

Our school is distinctly Christian in character and in 2014, we joined the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham Multi Academy Trust. The school is full and currently admits 210 pupils: 30 per year group from Reception to Y6. We have no catchment area and selection is based upon the admission criteria which prioritises sustained and regular church attendance by parents and is very popular in the local area. St Mary’s has strong links with St Mary Magdalene Parish Church and the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. In October 2017, the school was recognised as Outstanding in every category in the SIAMS inspection. Our last Ofsted inspection was in 2007 when the school was graded as Outstanding. Our academic results are consistently above national averages but we are ambitious to further improve our pupils’ outcomes, and to ensure that we as educators continue to enhance our skills through engagement in continuing professional development and educational research.

All members of the school community – children, staff and families - are valued, nurtured and cared-for in an environment of high challenge, low threat. Our staff work closely with other local schools and many of them have supported trainees through SCITT and School Direct programmes. Two of our current teachers trained with us and were employed at St Mary’s following the successful completion of their course.
