KS2 Class Teacher
Easter or September 2019 start

‘Come and join a village primary school that is part of an outstanding teaching alliance and a national English hub’

If you want to work in a village setting with wonderful well behaved children, supportive leadership and tailored professional learning opportunities then we want to hear from you!

Here at Glaisdale Primary School we share a special and unique learning community with Castleton and Lealholm Primary, and we are proud to serve the village of Glaisdale and surrounding areas around Whitby. The three schools are also part of a newly formed group of academies with Airy Hill and Westcliff in Whitby, known as Yorkshire Endeavour Academy Trust (YEAT).

YEAT is also one of 32 schools nationally to be a designated ‘English Hub’ which delivers excellence in early language and phonics teaching in reception and KS1.
Our learning environment and education provision that is offered to our 41 children on roll is second to none and Ofsted in May 2013, and recent school reviews judge us to be an ‘outstanding’ school.

Our teachers benefit from a large team of highly skilled Teaching Assistants that play an important part in school life. Life at our schools is calm, purposeful and enjoyable.

We have smaller than average classes, and highly supportive staff, governors, families and community. By having three distinct schools working as one has allowed our EYFS, KS1 and KS2 teachers to share work load, curriculum ideas and best practice.

• Someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure our children achieve their very best, and promotes academic excellence
