Flexible Working

We try and offer flexible working to staff where possible to support them both in their home and work life!

"Flexible working has changed my life, I have a much better work/life balance which has aided my well-being. I am still getting excellent performance management reviews and I am much more able to keep learning and improving in my job. I hadn't realised that I could do this and would advise all to consider what might benefit them. There is a process, but you are well supported, and guidance is given. I am much happier at work and I think that is reflected in the quality of my work. I feel alive and renewed."
"The school has supported me to work flexibly to enable an excellent work-life balance along with giving me the opportunity to ensure my childcare needs are fulfilled."
"Since I started my flexible working it has really helped manage a better work life balance. This has really helped with my mental health."
"I cannot thank the school enough for the level of support they have demonstrated in my request for flexibility, whilst dealing with a family member becoming ill and home-schooling three young children during the lockdown. Never, have I worked for such a flexible, understanding, and supportive employer. I felt 100% supported in every aspect and I could not have managed to balance my home and working relationship without the schools continued support and assistance. Many thanks for your compassion and understanding."
