Our Vision and Values


Why Work for Us

Welcome from the Headteacher

Dear applicant,   IMG_3467

Allow me to extend a warm welcome from all governors, staff and children of Friarage Community Primary School. I am delighted you have shown interest in joining us and I look forward to sharing with you what makes our school a very special place to work.  

I am proud to be the Headteacher of an inclusive school, which provides a nurturing, safe and inspiring place of learning at the very heart of Scarborough town. At our very core, you will find teamwork and commitment, which makes our vision of ‘together we can’ a reality.  

The school is unique; it serves a diverse community with 35 – 40% of its pupils having English as an additional language. The school is proud of how it supports all its pupils to learn and succeed.   

You will find a real buzz about our school and a palpable sense of energy, excitement and a love of teaching and children. We are looking for a colleague who shares the same ethos and values, understands our local context and can provide the inspired teaching our children thrive on and deserve!   

This is an exciting time to join us. As part of the Coast and Vale Learning Trust we are working together to share, learn and create a primary hub our area can be proud of. Through our Trust we are able to access the support and resources from The Scarborough Teaching Alliance, which means as a staff member you have a wide range of colleagues, tools and resources to help you develop not just in the classroom but beyond.   

I hope that you will take the time to come and see and experience for yourself the welcoming atmosphere and purposeful learning environment that makes our vision a reality.  

Good luck with your application. I look forward to reading it.  

Cheryl Cappleman, Headteacher
