Initial teacher Training
Our school is part of a growing number that are leading the way for more ‘schools-led’ Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in Doncaster.
This is really important to us because it means that we can choose the very best candidates and develop them into qualified teachers. Being able to choose who and how we train as teachers and doing that locally helps us in delivering the best outcomes for all of our children in Doncaster.
We are an active member of the Doncaster Teaching School Alliance – ‘Partners in Learning’ and we are currently seeking applicants to start training from September 2019.
The Alliance of schools works with the ‘Doncaster ITT Partnership’ (a Partnership of Doncaster schools and academies in our Teaching School Alliance and the Local Authority) as the accredited ITT Provider.
For further information, please see the following link:
Please ‘Follow’ the Doncaster ITT Partnership on Twitter, re-Tweet us and ‘Like’ us on Facebook - please use @DoncasterITT & #TeachDoncaster if possible.

We are pleased to announce that we will be starting RAINBOWS again at the end of September during the school day. We will be having weekly support groups for our children. We have successfully run this programme over the last 3 years.
If your child is part of a single parent family, a step-family, has experienced the death of a loved one, or is struggling through a painful experience, this will be an opportunity for him/her to share their thoughts and help them to deal with them.
When something significant happens in a family, the entire family is affected. Even
We have some very caring trained staff who are willing to help the children put their feelings into words, building a stronger sense of self-esteem, and begin to accept what has taken place in the community. All discussions will be treated confidentially and each person is asked to keep the confidentiality of the group.
If you would like your child to take part in the RAINBOW programme, please make an appointment to see Mrs Wood. Permission forms will need to be signed by a parent/carer, and each child will receive their own letter to explain the RAINBOW programme.
The support group will meet every week.
Early help is preventative, by providing support to families when a need is identified or as soon as a problem emerges at any point in a child’s life, from conception, through childhood and into adolescence. It can also prevent further problems arising by building resilience with families to find their own solutions in the future.
It should not be seen as a specific service, but any service, and crucially how services work collectively through tailored support packages for specific needs in individual families.
If you have a concern about a child or have an Early Help enquiry please call Early Help from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, on 01302 734110.
