Do you have energy, drive and enthusiasm? We need a dedicated, caring individual to lead one of KS2 classes as they continue their amazing learning journey at Cobham. We are looking for teachers that 'stand out' to join the most fantastic teaching team and we will guarantee that you will be well supported and guided in this new adventure. This role is available due to maternity leave requirements, thus its fixed term nature and the role will be from February 20 until July 21, but who knows what the future will hold!

We need your commitment to ensuring that all children reach their full potential and that you subscribe to Cobham’s motto of ‘Caring, Proud and Successful!’ Caring of each other, the world at large and all the people within it. Proud of who we are, our own achievements and those of others within the school family. These in turn, make us successful as learners, people and as citizens of the world.

An extensive knowledge of  the National Curriculum and all it entails is essential. You will undoubtedly need to be a hard working individual, who is extremely well organised, flexible and a great team player. You must be extremely strong in Assessment for Learning strategies to ensure that our children in KS2 are developing their independency skills and resilience. Extremely positive behaviour management is essential as your every word, action and behaviour ensures that you are the best possible role model to our children at all times. We hope you would also subscribe to our School TRUST values of Tolerance, Respect, Unity, Strength and Truth. If you think that you might fit the bill and that you would like further information please contact Mrs Styles, our office manager to arrange an informal visit. A visit is highly recommended to gain a true feel for the school. Visit our school website too to see what we are all about!

Information about the school

Cobham Primary School provides a fun, adventurous, learning journey for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. There are 219 children on roll. The class sizes range from 30 to 32. Every class has a ‘super’ teacher as well as a full time ‘fantastic’ Teaching Assistant. The school site is a picturesque one with many outstanding outdoor features. We benefit from having a full-sized playing field and two playgrounds. We also utilise many of the local areas of natural beauty to enhance our children’s learning. Classrooms are large and attractively decorated. The school, a listed building, was opened in 1874 and given to the village by the Earl of Darnley, who lived at Cobham Hall, and whose coat of arms adorns the school crest. Our school library with its beautiful mural and our well equipped ICT suite are used extensively to engage children in their learning.

We are looking for a colleague to join us who is hardworking, thoughtful and highly motivated to give the best of themselves for the benefit of our children.

In return we can guarantee support from our dedicated staff, also keen, supportive and interested parents, as well as the most wonderful, bright, caring children that a school can have.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
