Welcome toSt Martin & St Mary Church ofEngland Primary School


Site Security


Adam, our Janitor, finishes working in school at the end of next week (27th January 2023) and as yet we have been unable to fill his role in school. Until we can, we need to employ somebody on a part-time basis to unlock the school each morning, unlock our school gates and make sure the school site is ready for the staff and children to arrive. This might involve checking our boilers, gritting, clearing any rubbish etc. None of this would be particularly technical. Timings would be from around 7.30 until 9.30am each weekday morning when school is open but this could be negotiated.


If you, or someone you know in your family or local community, might be interested in this work for the short term, or potentially the longer term, please do contact school via the It would be really good to have a conversation with anyone interested in this role.


Please feel free to share this request across community networks and social media. Many thanks.
