    I'm wanting to look into getting into Primary School teaching but I'm not sure what the best way in is going to be?

    Any advice?!

    matter of opinion but the most common is a BA Education from A levels.
    some graduate training but most PGCE's do secondary

    You'd need a degree and C or above in Maths, English and Science.
    Once you have that you can apply for a PGCE via UCAS, or if you haven't completed a degree yet, you could go straight for a 4y degree in education via UCAS.
    You need to pass a numeracy and literacy test too.
    You need 10 days minimum experience in the phase you want to work.
