It is an exciting opportunity to work as part of our school team to further advance our rapidly improving school. It will be an opportunity to play a full part in the continued development of our vision for all our children to become confident, secure, caring individuals who flourish through our creative and engaging curriculum.

We are a welcoming church school with happy, well behaved and highly motivated children. We have high expectations of ourselves and the children. Parents are highly supportive of the school. This post is suitable for either experienced or newly qualified teachers.

The successful candidates will:

* have successful, recent experience of planning, teaching and assessing
* work positively with parents and families

Longlisted candidates will be allocated a visit to the school, prior to interview, for lesson observations.

Shortlisted applicants will be required for observations during the week of 17 June and for the full day on 25 June, for interviews.

The two successful applicants will need to work (paid) during the last week of term to ensure a comprehensive and nurturing handover and induction, for the benefit of our children.

We are strongly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS disclosure and a range of other recruitment checks.
