This runs through everything that we do within school and we have high expectations for our children. We are seeking to appoint a committed, enthusiastic and positive play practitioner to join our team of friendly, experienced staff in our before and after school club, Valley Explorer’s.

The successful candidate will be responsible for supervising the children in the before and after school club, delivering/collecting children from class or to their parents and assisting in the preparation and delivery of safe, creative and appropriate play opportunities.

A good attendance record is a must. We provide an inclusive learning community where every child really does matter.
