We are looking for the best possible candidates who will share our vision and:

  • Complement our amazing team
  • Support our school ethos and values and contribute to them through their own strengths, interests and talents
  • Share our view that pupils’ personal development is a fundamental part of their learning
  • Can be flexible and are willing to adapt to the changing demands of primary teaching, particularly in a one-form entry primary school
  • Are fun to be with and inspire children and adults alike with their enthusiasm and commitment
  • Have determination and commitment to ensure that children have the very best experience

We are a school that believes in investing in our staff and would ensure that you receive quality support and on-going CPD opportunities wherever you are in your career path.

We would very much like to hear from you so please contact us and ask to speak to the Headteacher to discuss this opportunity further. We look forward to hearing from you.
