Our Village Primary School, St John the Baptist in Ruyton XI Towns, wants a Gardener to come once a week to encourage and educate the children about Gardening.
To start as soon as possible.
Must enjoy working with children, have lots of patience and good gardening knowledge (for the many questions)
Must be willing to be CRB checked - and having a greenhouse would be an advantage.
Contact the school office on 01939 260445
Interviews will be conducted by the children after Easter.

From the Royal Horticultural Society magazine `The Gardener`
Children in England could be taking gardening lessons at school from September 2014 under new Department of Education proposals to revise the National Curriculum.
A new outline for teaching says pup[ils should learn practical skills and knowledge in horticulture so that they can cultivate plants for food or for decorative displays (flowers!).
The proposed curriculum changes apply to children in primary and secondary schools ages 5-14 (Key Stages 1-3).
