We have the highest possible aspirations for our staff and pupils and a supportive working culture that focuses on positive learning behaviours and high expectations for all children.

• passionate about teaching and learning, and enjoy the drive of a Year 1 classroom;
• an innovative and reflective practitioner who is keen to learn;
• positive, with a ‘can do’ attitude;

We welcome applications from qualified teachers who will:

• model and disseminate high quality pedagogy and practice to secure consistently good or outstanding teaching and learning for Y1 children;
• be committed to on-going professional development;
• contribute to the wider life of the Academy;

• be innovative, highly motivated and eager to develop in line with the School Improvement Plan;
• have good interpersonal skills and be able to work well as part of our team.
