At South Gosforth First School our key curriculum drivers are:

‘Character’, ‘Culture’, ‘Creativity’ & ‘Challenge’

These drivers lie at the heart of everything that we do in school.

If you are a dynamic, passionate teacher, who is creative, ambitious and embraces
innovation, then you may be who we are looking for. If you have high expectations across all areas of school life which inspire, motivate and challenge pupils of all abilities and wholly believe in promoting our values and ethos to the wider school community, we would love for you to come and join our team!
