Getting into Teaching - DFE

For more information from the Department for Education about getting into teaching, have a look at their website.

Teach First
Whilst St. Cecilia's is not eligible for the Teach First programme, you may find the
programme valuable.

Support Staff

We have a large support staff who work alongside children to help them learn effectively.  Some staff work with the class in general and with small groups of children.  Others are specialist staff who work alongside children with special education needs or disability.  Classroom based non teaching staff usually need to have a minimum of English and Maths at GCSE.

This video from Unison provides a useful insight into the work of school support staff.




At St. Cecilia's Catholic Primary School, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in all circumstances and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. To read more about our commitment to safeguarding please view our safeguarding policy.
