Chesterton Primary School staff page

Our team of staff work with great enthusiasm, passion and skill to support the varied needs of our community. Our class teachers lead the learning in each classroom and are supported by Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Higher Level Teaching Assistants (HLTAs). HLTAs lead learning as part of teacher PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) time and are skilled in covering classes at short notice when there are staff absences.

Along with the academic needs of the children, our staff play a key role in supporting the safeguarding, social, domestic, emotional and health needs of our children and their families. Alongside the work with our children and families are the business, administration, site and maintenance responsibilities that are part of ensuring a school with around 200 people in it each can can operate efficiently and effectively.

The dedication shown by our staff, and a willingness to ensure the needs of the children, community and school are met, ensure the team is a success.
