Two Vacancies

 We have two vacancies here at Streatley.

1. Lunchtime play and keep safe assistant following our lovely lady Mrs Thatcher’s change in personal circumstances requiring her to be at home. 

Do you want to be part of our amazing school?

The children and staff would love you to come round and meet us. There are 98 pupils and no more than two handfuls of staff. Currently many lovely parents volunteer at lunchtime to help us. We’d really like stability and so that our headteacher can keep the library open on a Monday, continue to support children with other projects they come up with and be available- she currently has to do both or choose. 

2. Teacher in Foundation. It is at least 1 year of loveliness. 15 pupils confirmed. Indoor and outdoor classroom. Wellies, overalls and dirt all available. Imagination, creativity, huge vocabularies and great personalities available. Supportive governors, head, staff and parents. Come and have the best year ever! 

Look under What’s on tab. See you soon.

Request for Match-funding

Many companies throughout the U.K. offer employees the chance to boost their fundraising efforts by ‘matching’  the money they raise. It really is money for nothing and FoSS could double the amount of money it raises with very little effort.. if you do think that your employer has a scheme in place please let your class rep know.

FoSS meeting

A FoSS meeting will be taking place at 8.00pm on Monday 9th January at The Bull, all welcome. Please come along.
