It is not often that our school seek to advertise for a class teacher position, as we have been very fortunate in retaining excellent staff, or upskilling previously dispondent NCT's/ECT's to fulfill their ambition to be primary teachers.  However, we are now seeking to appoint a new class practioner as maternity cover for the rest of this academic year. 

We are seeking a teacher with enthusiasm, patience, creativity and reflectiveness.   Someone who can work independently and as a team player, making the difference to our children's lives and that of our families. You would be joining our team of experienced, exceptional staff who are commited to the  community of Crockenhill Primary School.  Here we work together and support one another to be the very best we can be.  We have the same drive - to make a real and tangible difference to our children, encouraging independence and motivation.  We have high expectations and provide a secure, safe but challenging environment, where mutual trust and respect amongst every member of the school community is fostered, enabling every learner, both adult and child to reach their full potential.


If you share in this vision and want to be part of our wonderful school, you would be joining a commited staff who enjoy coming to school each day.  Our children are enthusiastic learners and they want a happy, passionate, outstanding teacher to give them the best possible learning opportunities.

In return, we can offer:

  • Fabulous children
  • Ongoing professional development
  • A commitment to staff workload and a work / life balance
  • Laughter
  • Chocolate, biscuits and cake!

We are looking for a class teacher for  KS1  to start maternity cover as soon as possible.  The school would accept applications from qualified teachers as well as ECT's to nurture and develop as they begin their journey into teaching  You are welcome to telephone the school for more information and to make an appointment to visit the school.
