  • Someone who has a good understanding of the EYFS curriculum and of child development.
  • Someone who will share responsibility of key children and be responsible for keeping observations and updating children's records in relation to their learning.

We are a school that can offer you: 

  • Excellent Continual Professional Development Opportunities that will support you to grow in the direction you would like to head.
  • A hard-working and extremely supportive team of staff at Sutton Road Primary School who are very friendly and caring about all they do.
