Working with us
Take some time to browse through our Newsletters, they will give you a good flavour of what life is like at Wray Common.
Professional Learning Opportunities
Wray Common offers a wide range of both in house and externally led development opportunities aimed at securing best practice at all levels of teaching and learning. We have an outstanding NQT induction programme and teachers have the opportunity of working toward Lead Practitioner status and supporting other schools. A balance between improving specific areas of individual practice, pedagogy and subject knowledge as well as a focus on pupil wellbeing, behaviour and pastoral needs, ensures that the needs of the children and the teaching professionals are met. Research based, peer supported, enquiry led lesson study forms a key part of our professional development programme. A recent CPD audit noted ‘some incredibly strong findings particularly around CPD culture and processes”.
School-based teacher training (SCITT)
Wray Common partners with Surrey South Farnham School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SSF SCITT), an “outstanding” primary Initial Teacher Training provider. Training as part of this SCITT programme gives you the opportunity to learn ‘on the job” . You benefit from working and learning every day at Wray Common and getting an immediate insight into what teaching involves. Trainees benefit from working with dedicated, experienced mentors in a supportive and forward thinking environment.
Wray Common Primary School highly values parents and others who volunteer to help out with school activities. In the demanding world of education, volunteer helpers are a great asset in helping teachers to offer a much broader and differentiated curriculum. They can make the most exciting and rewarding of activities which teachers wish to promote actually possible and we hope to encourage your support, contributions and assistance. Parents and other members of the community have many skills which can be deployed in a school for the benefit of the children’s education and indeed, many school activities would be at risk if it weren’t for your help. Volunteering is open to anyone who wishes to be one, providing they can fulfil all the Safeguarding Children requirements. If you are interested in volunteering or would like to find out more, please contact the school office.
Wray Common Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
