School Direct opportunities with the
â€˜Colebrook â€“ Goddard â€“ Covinghamâ€™ trio of schools
We are a trio of contrasting schools who can offer a wide range of opportunities to trainee teachers. Firmly focused on improving outcomes for children, we provide staff and students with extensive professional development opportunities to enable pupil progress to be our top priority.
Our contrasting schools include; Colebrook Infant Academy, a two form entry infant school where â€œchildren make good progress from the moment they enter the schoolâ€ Ofsted 2014, Goddard Park Community Primary, a large urban school with a Childrenâ€™s CentreÂ and Daycare where â€˜high expectations and positive ethos are shared by all to support learning. The school motto sums this up very well, â€˜Everyone learns – everyone caresâ€™ Ofsted 2013 â€¦.. and Covingham Primary, a two form entry â€˜happy and harmoniousâ€™ (Ofsted June 2014) school where â€˜caring for pupils and promoting successâ€™ is our key focus. Our dedicated, professional and friendly staff will ensure your first steps into the world of teaching will be positive, effective and enjoyable.
â€œI very much enjoy working at Covingham because weâ€™re all always learning, our professional development needs are always well catered for which helps children make progressâ€ (member of SLT).Â
â€œWeâ€™re a happy school where relationships between staff are excellent; I can always go to anyone to seek adviceâ€ (class teacher).

I have really enjoyed my placements at Goddard Park and Colebrook. There have been many opportunities to learn and develop my skills in these friendly and supportive schools. Communication between schools worked well, so at all times, I felt I belonged.Â
