Working at Allhallows Primary Academy: Allhallows Primary Academy is a one form entry primary academy for students between the ages of 5 to 11. The academy admits a maximum of 30 children per class and we work closely with our sister school, Stoke Primary Academy. As a rural school, we have many exciting opportunities for the children to work with the local community and currently we are involved in a project with Slough Fort and The National Lottery Trust with Allhallows Church. These exciting projects mean that our curriculum is further enriched and the children become global citizens as well as learning about their own local community.
The academy prides itself on maintaining a ‘Good’ in it’s latest Ofsted inspection in 2019. We follow the International Baccalaureate which focuses on the development of the whole child, both in and outside of the classroom, with an emphasis on inquiry-led learning, encouraging our pupils to challenge, question and take ownership of their learning. In order to achieve this, we believe in the importance of building strong partnerships between the adults and pupils in our school, ensuring all learners to succeed and benefit from the relationships formed within a caring and encouraging environment. Therefore to be a successful candidate you need to be passionate, dedicated, proactive and caring.
