Loughborough Primary School is a two form entry school in
Loughborough's Head has been one of the first schools to
declare its support for the principle that only qualified teachers (or teachers
on an employment based route to QTS) shall teach whole classes.
The Headteacher is very respectful of the views of the
unions and has had to manage a period of difficulty, respecting the concerns of
teachers' unions and support staff. This was the feeling of both NUT and GMB
when problems arose due to budgetary concerns way back.
Relations with the unions are usually good and we have an
NUT recognises the committment of the school to teachers,
pupils and parents. We have reps in the school and so no one need feel
isolated. If it is your intention to apply for a permanent post there, Lambeth
Teachers Association has no hesitation in supporting your decision.
