Mount Pleasant Lane Primary School

Primary St Albans District


Part of Spiral Partnership Trust


We would like to extend a very warm welcome to you as a prospective applicant for a job at MPL. If you haven’t visited our school yet, please do so as we are extremely proud of the children here and the interesting and creative work that they do. We would be delighted to show you round the school and let the children speak for themselves! Our aim is to provide all of our children with the highest possible quality learning that builds on the foundations laid down with them by their parents in their earliest years. We value excellent academic achievement as well as children’s learning in other areas – we also have an excellent track record in sporting achievements. We want children to be excited about their learning and we work closely with parents to make sure this happens. We strive to make sure that our children achieve their potential and, in addition, are equipped with the skills they need to thrive and enjoy learning throughout their lives. In order to achieve these outcomes, we have taken an innovative approach to learning to learn and use a creative approach to curriculum planning. MPL became an academy in July 2018 and is part of the Spiral Partnership Trust. We have a Published Admission Number of 45 and the school caters for children of all abilities and backgrounds, in line with the expectations of the National Curriculum. We serve every member of the community and we celebrate the diversity that exists amongst our children and families. In our most recent OfSTED inspection (Feb 2015) the school was judged as ‘good’ in all areas. We were pleased and proud of that outcome and are now aiming for even better. We welcome applications from candidates who are committed to helping us achieve that goal. We are confident that if you are successful in applying to work at MPL, your time with us will be enjoyable and satisfying. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
