Our Lady of Peace Primary and Nursery School is a three-form entry school with an attached nursery. The school is a Catholic Voluntary Aided school within the Diocese of Northampton and has close links with the parish of Our Lady of Peace Church in Burnham.

Their aim is to promote the best interests of each child and celebrate their individuality and uniqueness so that they are able to meet their full potential by working in partnership with parents as a community that follows Christ.

Driven by strong values that match those of the school, the successful Trainee Primary Teacher will work amongst a supportive and friendly team with access to fantastic CPD opportunities. This support, in collaboration with your Premier Pathways network, ensures you will thrive on your professional learning journey.

We know that two full years in a school will enable you to become a confident and reflective practitioner. Through rich experiences in a consistent setting blended with online learning and insightful residentials, Premier Pathways develops you at a steady pace.

Our salaried programme supports you financially, whilst both a University Tutor and Premier Pathways Mentor nurture your academic progress and wellbeing. This unique combination of no tuition fees, educational support and peer network allows you to focus on the fundamentals of teaching and learning and refining your practice.

The first year of the programme will see you join your school in a support role capacity, working towards the standards of a Teaching Assistant apprenticeship. This will equip you with the skills, knowledge and behaviours required for a successful career in education and allowing you to practice them within the context of your school.

The second year is when your PGCE will commence, taught by the highly esteemed University of Buckingham. Your teaching timetable will increase as you put your theoretical understanding and practical experience to effect, remaining at a pace that is both challenging and comfortable.

Our Lady of Peace Primary School has high expectations driven by caring individuals who are dedicated to the needs of all children in their care and are hoping for a Trainee Primary Teacher who can embody these values. The school has a strong community spirit and happy atmosphere, made possible with the support of their committed team of hardworking staff, Governing Body and parents.
