    I'm making a guess too!
    I think that they have left out the punctuation.
    They are giving examples of the type of school that you have worked in. It could be a Junior School, mixed. (this last one is a real guess!). Or Infants. Or Secondary. Or a College.
    I reckon that the most important thing is that you put down there something that they can recognise. So write Jun or Inf or Prim or Sec. But if there's room, write it out in full.
    Have you read all the advice about job seeking: Here's a summary:

    I think the M is for middle...but I only know that because I spent many happy years teaching in two of them.

    But a very old fashioned term to say Junior, Middle and Infant. Most it is Primary or Secondary these days.

    Of course! Duh!
    My boys were at middle schools - but they are in their 40's now . . .

    Well, those are what I imagined them to stand for, so maybe I'm not as thick as I thought!
    Can I have the job now?

    I thought J M & I meant Junior, Mixed and Infant, but it is a very old fashioned term.
