Are you the sort of person that we are looking for? Are we the school that could help you develop and challenge yourself as ateacher?  Are you looking for a role where your contribution will be celebrated and the impact of you on our children is put right at the heart of everything you do?  If you answered yes to those questions then Sunnyfields Primary School is the place for you!

Sunnyfields Primary School is a thriving community that works hard to challenge all that work and learn here.  The school is led by a strong leadership team who are passionate about teaching and learning.  All members of the Sunnyfields community push the boundaries to ensure that we constantly meet and exceed our very own high expectations. 

The school was judged as a good school in all areas and outstanding in EYFS and for behaviour and safety.

Leaders have been strategic and effective in supporting improvements in teaching. Robust monitoring and strong training opportunities for teachers have led to improvements in pupils' outcomes.  Pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. This means that a high proportion reach the expected standards for their age in these areas and an increasing proportion exceed these standards. Teaching is engaging, with skilled questioning encouraging better oral communication from pupils. Questioning and other checks made in pupils' books are used well to inform planning by teachers, meaning that pupils' needs are met closely. Pupils' conduct is excellent. They are self- motivated and do their very best at all times of the day. This is the case during playtime and lunchtime, as well as when they are in lessons. They display very positive attitudes to learning. The curriculum is strong and has contributed to the improvements in school. In particular, it has supported very positive behaviour and engagement in learning.’  Ofsted June 2017.
