We are offering an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic person to join our community. Working together with our great staff team you will inspire our Year 1 children and contribute to our development as a school. Our community is built on enthusiastic learners, committed staff, supportive parents and governors. In December 2017 we were judged Good by OFSTED, with Outstanding for Personal development, behaviour and welfare. Ditchling (St Margaret's) C.E. Primary and Nursery School is a village primary with 207 children on roll, aged 2 - 11 years, currently organised across 6 classes plus nursery. From September 2022, we are aiming to separate our EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 children for their morning learning; this means we can offer really targeted support to meet the children’s needs, whilst still giving the benefits of working in a mixed-age class in the afternoon. We would be looking for our Year 1 teacher to work 4 mornings a week 8:30am-12 (0.43 FTE).
