Freemantles is very proud of our staff team. They are a hugely committed and dedicated team who genuinely have the best interests of the pupils at heart. The class teams are made up of a teacher, a lead assistant and classroom assistants.
Generally, a class has 9 pupils and a total staff team of between 4 and 6 staff.
In addition to the class teams that parents will get to know well, there are a number of other staff teams across the school, which it is useful to be aware of.

The Leadership and Governors at Freemantles are committed to further improving staff wellbeing and fulfilment. It is clear that staff wellbeing will impact directly upon pupil wellbeing, therefore we take a variety of steps to ensure staff know that they are valued and can have a good work-life balance.
As a part of our commitment to fulfilment we have in-house trainers in the main interventions that we use, and we utilise training opportunities to ensure that all staff are able to develop their skills so that they can implement them effectively in class. From September 2019 we will be utilising the final hour of a Friday for staff training to ensure that we can deliver the interventions with great skill, at the highest quality.
