Are you an inspirational, enthusiastic teacher who has high aspirations for your pupils and for yourself?  Would you like to teach in a school with lovely children and a great staff team?

We are in search of a class teacher with a passion for providing exciting and stimulating learning experiences for our children, someone who puts the children at the heart.  We are an 'Outstanding' (OFSTED and SIAMS) school but we still have plans to develop our school in so many ways and have a desire to see everyone flourish along the way.  Would you like to join us?

As a Church School we live by our Christian Vision and Values. Love, Learning and Laughter are key to all we do and we learn together, celebrating everyone’s achievements along the way.  We educate every child to reach their full potential; the children are the reason we are here!  Our Vision drives everything and is the map for our journey as a school.  Life at ‘The Endowed’ is rewarding, we make learning enjoyable and challenging; we are never complacent and constantly aim to improve all we do.

The right candidate will show the qualities of an ‘Outstanding’ teacher and be willing to blossom in their vocation as an essential part of a successful and experienced team.

You will benefit from working with the most amazing children and supportive parents; a dedicated and friendly staff, an outstanding Governing Body and our local churches; our local schools as well as continued support for your professional development. There will be an expectation that you will lead a curriculum subject.

If you feel that you would like to and are able to become part of The Endowed family; that you have the necessary experience to build on and the confidence to suggest changes, ours could be the school for you. Come and join us and ‘let your light shine’.

Visits to the school are strongly encouraged prior to invitation for interview.  We would love to hear from you and to arrange your visit.  Come and get to know us all, and us, you.
