A Great Place to Work

At Tapton we work hard to foster the right conditions to make the school a great place to work. When new staff join us they join our family. We know our staff are our greatest resource and we recognise that we are all learners with the capacity to develop and improve, no matter what our career stage.

As a Teaching School we have access to the funding, resources and expertise needed to grow and develop all our staff. It also means we can embrace a range of opportunities to work with other schools and organisations.

Our recruitment and retention rates are high and we believe this is in part due to the fact that we listen to our staff and regularly seek feedback on how we can support and nurture them to become the best they can be.

Our Wellbeing and Workload Charter sets out the 11 things which can cause excessive workload or anxiety amongst staff. We have acted on all of them and are committed to reducing workload overtime. 

Our staffroom committee and happiness and wellbeing group work together to organise social events, opportunities to show appreciation and our end of term staff celebrations.
