The Gower School prides itself on its very high ratio of staff working directly with children. The level exceeds levels set by Ofsted, so our children get lots of individual attention.
We also invest heavily in our staff team both in terms of Continuing Professional Development and sponsoring staff through longer-term qualifications. This ensures that The Gower School is a great place to work and that our skills and knowledge are updated constantly.
Many of our nursery staff have been with the school for years – one has even been with us for sixteen years! The Gower School has 47 employees who have worked with us for over three years, 30 employees who have worked at the school for over five years, and 8 employees who have been with us for over ten years – something we are really proud of.
But the nursery school is a great mix of experienced and new teachers whose fantastic contribution to our children’s development and The Gower School’s success are marked each year in a special anniversary event for our staff. You can see a document showing all our nursery staff’s dedication and service.
As a small central London school, The Gower School can sometimes suffer in the same way as other local companies who employ good overseas staff, which often find issues with visas and accommodation. As an employer of many female staff, we inevitably lose staff when they become parents too, although that isn’t always the case as we work very hard to offer part-time and flexible work to suit new parents and ensure as much continuity at the school.
