Watergall Primary School

Watergall is an exciting and diverse school. Our motto ‘Aiming High, Including All’ encapsulates our high expectations of all, strong pastoral care and aspirational focus on raising achievement. The school is a place where children are known and valued as individuals and where they can thrive academically and socially. Visitors comment on the special atmosphere, friendly staff and politeness of our children.
Our governing body support the school well. We also have excellent links with the local community and took on the management of Watergall Children and Family Centre in July.
We encourage applications from dedicated teachers looking to ‘make their mark’ and bring something extra to our school. In return we provide a high level of support and professional development for teachers at all stages of their careers. This includes planning as part of a team, coaching and mentoring, tailored CPD and a chance to develop your own areas of interest and expertise within school.
We recognise that teaching is a demanding profession and that work-life balance is important in ensuring we bring the best of ourselves to work. Our recent independent staff survey put our school in the top 10% nationally for staff well-being and job satisfaction. It highlighted strengths including the friendly, caring ethos, respectful and supportive relationships and opportunities for personal development. As a staff, we listen to the needs of our colleagues and work hard to support each other towards our shared goal of improving children’s minds and lives.
Please do take the time to visit us; we look forward to meeting you.
