We are looking to appoint a passionate and enthusiastic teacher to join our Trust and work as a Key Stage 2 Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages across our five primary schools.  This is a temporary contract to cover maternity leave.  

Do you hold QTS in the appropriate age range and experience teaching KS1/KS2 (or relevant qualifications/experience at secondary level) and possess a capacity to teach a foreign language (equally, a discovery programme of many languages would also be an exciting proposition)? 

If so, then we would encourage you to apply for this exciting initiative to raise standards in teaching of modern foreign languages at Key Stage 2 level within our Trust.

 The successful candidate will be joining a supportive and nurturing Trust, which really puts the children at the heart of everything it does. Our ethos is centred around providing the highest quality care and education for every child in our school community. As a result, we have a team who support one another and help work together in the best interests of the children.

We have a unique personal development programme to support teachers’ continuing professional development. We ensure that teachers have access to high-quality, innovative training which reflects the latest developments in education. A range of opportunities are also available within the wider Trust. All training is personalised to meet the individual needs and ambitions of our staff.
