Positive comments and feedback from members of staff
“Here are some positive things about working at Wolsey House. The way in which the staff work together as a team is important. We can turn to each other for help or advice and know that there is always support when we need it. The children are an obvious positive. To have a child turn to you and say “now I get it”, after I have explained something, is one of the best feelings I can have. When I can help a child to understand something they have been struggling with, I know I am in the right place, doing the right thing. As long as I smile while I work I know the school has a positive effect on me.”
“I feel that Wolsey House has provided opportunities for career progression for staff across the school, in most departments and for varying job roles. I think that the subject leaders are very proactive and as a result, all subjects are well planned and delivered with consistency across the school and there is always plenty of opportunity for enrichment activities which relate to all areas of the curriculum. It goes without saying that the children are the best thing about working at Wolsey House. The many different cultures, religions and backgrounds are well accepted and celebrated, making the children even more fun and interesting to work with.”
“The (All) staff work so well together as a team and support each other. There’s always help at hand!”
“I enjoy working at Wolsey House because of the friendly atmosphere within the school and the helpful attitude of both staff and pupils.”
Wolsey House Primary School has been my life for 21 years. In that time, I have taught in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. People often ask me why I have never moved on to another school. My reply is always the same. I love the place - I love my colleagues, the children and the parents. I am immensely proud of my ‘Wolsey family.’ Why would I want to work anywhere else? My current role is Additional Learning Needs Coordinator. This has given me the opportunity to work even more closely with the children and their parents. I am relishing my new role.
The staff are a really supportive group and encouraging towards one another. I know that when any supply teachers or visitors come into school they have always said what a warm and welcoming school it is and they prefer coming here to anywhere else! The Universities that we are affiliated with also thank us for our support and commitment to supporting and mentoring students (we have the certificates to prove that).
Although I haven't been at Wolsey House long from the moment I considered applying I felt welcomed by each person I met. Once I had been offered the job, I came in one evening before Christmas to fill in some forms and was made to feel part of the team which really made an impact on me. Any questions I had were answered with care and I felt supported. During the first week I have been overwhelmed with people checking I'm ok and offering help and support if I need it. It's like joining a big family that just wants each of us to be the best we can be.
