"I love our school as we are very welcoming to everyone. We are a very diverse school which is great! We have lots of visitors and trips and our teachers are the best and help us with our learning. They are supportive and funny." - Year 6 Pupil

Beeston Fields is a forward-thinking school who are proud to part of the Flying High Partnership. We have a great opportunity for a F1 teaching assistant to join our EYFS team.

Beeston Fields has been on a significant improvement journey. Through the support of the trust, and a clear vision for our children the school now has in place strong foundations to deliver on our ambition to create the ‘best school in the universe’.

The successful candidate will form part of our incredible, driven and ambitious team, who are determined to deliver the best possible opportunities for our children.
