About the School

This OFSTED rated 'GOOD' school is a long standing establishment that was founded within the 19th century, with the present site being open since 1957. Everyday the school welcomes 210 children through its doors, who are aged between 4 and 11 years.

They hold strong religious values very highly here, and religious education is central.

Within OFSTED's latest inspection in 2019, they reported that all the staff and governors hold a shared vision, which underpins everything that is done within the school, which consequently makes it a happy place to be. They stated that behaviour is 'exemplary', and that 'pupils are polite, courteous and respectful'.

Milestone Education is a committed Equal Opportunities Employer and will not discriminate on the grounds of age, gender, race, ethnicity, disability, or sexual orientation.

Successful applicants will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check via the Disclosure and Barring Service. Our HR and Safeguarding team will be there to support you throughout the process.

But, I don’t want to register with a supply agency, why should I sign up with Milestone?

We get it. Supply agencies can’t always deliver exactly what you’re looking for, but that’s where we’re different…


We’re an education platform service who partner with schools and MATs to support their recruitment, training and wellbeing needs. It’s in our interest to secure you a role you’ll love, in a setting you’ll want to stay in, with a view to progressing your career. If that’s what you want!


Our HR and Safeguarding team consistently go the extra mile to complete your checks as quickly as possible - at no cost to you. To put so much hard work and valuable time into completing these checks and then NOT deliver the opportunities you are looking for…? Well, we’d go out of business pretty quickly! 

How much does it cost and how much will I be paid?

Our services to you are completely free.


Costs will only incur if you require a new DBS or OSPC, but don't worry - we can still put you forward for interviews while the applications in process, so you won't miss out on all the exciting opportunities!

All roles are paid in line with Teachers Pay and Conditions, or are matched with each school’s salary guidelines for the role you undertake. We'll always negotiate the best possible pay rates that reflect your hard work, experience and qualifications.
