Due to the retirement of the current post holder the Headteacher and Governors wish to appoint an efficient and reliable caretaker.

In return we can offer:
• The opportunity to be part of a friendly, successful team in our small, village school
• Opportunities for further training and development
• A well-maintained school environment

Where our roles are customer facing and you are required to speak to members of the public, the ability to converse at ease with customers and provide advice in accurate spoken English is essential for the post
