Midday Supervisors (MDSA)

The Times Educational Supplement put it best when they said, “Midday supervisors are the lynchpins of an army of support staff that patrols school playgrounds and cafeterias to ensure pupils are fed, appropriate behaviour promoted and order prevails.”  If this sounds like the kind of rewarding challenge you’re looking for and you want to help create a positive environment for young children, why don’t you consider becoming a Midday Supervisor at Balfour Primary School?
