William Booth Primary & Nursery School is looking for a motivated, energetic and organised individual to become part of the Breakfast Club team.

William Booth is an average sized, thriving 210 primary school with a 60 place Nursery, very close to the city centre.  The school is set on a fairly large site and considerable efforts have gone into making the most of the site to provide our children with an appropriate and stimulating outdoor environment.

Visitors to the school always talk very enthusiastically about the quality of the learning environment and the highly tangible warm, inviting and positive ethos. A quote from one of our visitors encapsulates William Booth very well: “There is something special about the place the moment you step through the door.  It is a haven for everyone in the middle of a very busy city”.

The school was last inspected by OFSTED in January 2014. Some of the main findings were that:-

  • The school is a GOOD school.
  • Standards are rising rapidly and pupils are making good progress in all age groups.
  • Carefully considered support for all pupils helps them to improve quickly.
  • Behaviour is good throughout the school and lessons are interesting.
  • Teaching is good and outstanding and staff work very closely together.
  • Pupils enjoy a wide range of subjects and the rich mix of after-school activities.
  • Parents strongly agree that the school is led and managed well.

We serve a varied catchment area and our children reflect a variety of social, cultural and academic backgrounds.

  • To encourage children to eat a substantial breakfast, whilst encouraging correct etiquette.
  • Administering basic first aid and recording incidents in the first aid book as appropriate and provide written correspondence to the parent/carer
