Working at Thomas's

Working at Thomas's

Members of staff at Thomas’s work extremely hard as members of inspirational, supportive and enthusiastic teams. And be it a warm unicorn coat for playground duty, morning coffee or fresh fruit at break times, Thomas’s knows that small, thoughtful touches make a difference and teachers and members of the support teams feel so well cared for.

Members of staff across Thomas's collaborate frequently with one another, exchange ideas for best practice, develop knowledge and skills and devise new ways of teaching. More experienced teachers mentor the newer members of their teams and everyone learns from each other. 

 

 

The Thomas’s People Strategy has been designed to promote a culture that reflects Thomas’s values, to develop a stimulating and motivational working environment for staff and to support the achievement of the Group’s aims and vision. 

As an equal opportunities employer, Thomas's is committed to the equal treatment of all current and prospective employees and does not condone discrimination on the basis of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity or marriage and civil partnership. Thomas's aspire to have a diverse and inclusive workspace and strongly encourage suitably qualified applicants from a wide range of backgrounds to apply and join the Group.

Ethos for Members of Staff

Most importantly, Thomas’s encourages everyone in our community, pupils, parents and teachers, to be kind. Wellbeing is at the heart of everything that we do. Without it, we cannot successfully encourage children to grow physically and emotionally. Thomas’s always reminds us, as employees, how important we are to them and why we are all part of the Thomas’s family.

Professional Development
PROGRESSION

Professional Development

At the heart of staff support is continuing professional development. Whether that is our ongoing in-house training relating to school development priorities, supporting a teacher to undertake a Master’s degree or another postgraduate qualification, offering further training to support staff, encouraging the establishment of a new idea in school or providing mentoring and support for newly qualified teachers; the journey towards excellence is paramount. Thomas’s want their staff to be as successful and fulfilled as they possibly can be. We offer various CPD routes through our partnership with the National School of Education and Teaching and staff have also received their MAs though the University of Roehampton and the University of Buckingham. We offer a Graduate Recruitment Scheme through T3 - Thomas's Teacher Training and teaching assistants can pursue the QTS route into teaching if they wish.
