Safer Internet Day

Safer Internet Day 2021 celebrates the amazing range of information and opportunities online, and its potential to inform, connect and inspire us, whilst also looking at how young people can separate fact from fiction.

The campaign focuses on how we can know what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. It will explore how influence, persuasion and manipulation can impact young people’s decisions, opinions and what they share online.

Are you interested in training to become a Primary school teacher?

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.

We would be very interested to hear from you if you are thinking of becoming a teacher, or if you know someone who is. We’re looking for people who have a full honours degree (or will have by next September); already have their English, Maths & Science GCSEs (at least a Grade C or equivalent); possess a passion for teaching and want to inspire young people to fulfil their potential.

We’d be delighted to meet with you for an informal discussion about the exciting teacher training opportunities available, so please contact the school to arrange a convenient time. We can also provide you with support and guidance on your application form and possibly offer you some experience in school if you feel that you’d like a ‘taster’ of what teaching would be like.

Or come along to one of our local ‘drop-in’ sessions over the coming months – see: for details

No appointment is necessary, so you can just turn up to find out about ‘Schools-based’ Initial Teacher Training

For any further information on what becoming a teacher might involve more generally and to find out how to apply for teacher training please go to: or
