St Eugene de Mazenod
Catholic Primary School
'Go shine in the world.'
What our teachers tell us about their experience of our school
I think that I have become a more explicit and more expert teacher since working at St Eugene's. The staff training we have had shows a clear and explicit way of teaching. This has now become my classroom practice.
The coaching model at St Eugene's means that I am being supported to develop my skills all of the time as a teacher, both in subject knowledge but also in pedagogy. I have never really had training in pedagogy (how to teach) before I came to this school. The coaching is practical, detailed and helpful.
It is a wonderful place to work and everyone is pulling together as a team to work with the children's best interests at heart.
There is a brilliantly positive and welcoming atmosphere at this school. Everyone who works here from the head to the teaching assistants is passionate about education and really cares about the children.
The staff are a lovely, supportive group of people to work with.
I am happy with the lovely children in my class and the support given by the school. There is always careful thinking about teacher workload and realistic expectations.
I am happy with how much l am learning and growing as an educator. I feel I am gaining expertise and experience that will prepare me for a future career in education.
