St Martins Church of England Infant School
About our school experience
When you start your experience with us you will be assigned a year group and a class teacher. We would expect you to be hands on and get involved. Your class teacher, in discussion with you, will arrange for you to observe a range a subjects and year groups so you get a full experience of life in a school. We might ask you to listen to children read, support them during a lesson / break time. Work with them during their lessons. You would be part of a year group team so you would attend year group meetings and experience staff meetings. Also if there were any PTFA events or outings during your experience we would encourage you to attend them.
The best experience is when you throw yourself into the day to day sessions. Be proactive and have a go!
As a school we are advocates for the School Direct routes as you are embedded in school life from the very start
