Are you looking for a part-time role as a class teacher in a tight-knit, community-focused, pupil-centric village school? Are you looking for a role where you can make real change and contribute to the successes of your colleagues, to help the school become an outstanding centre for learning? Are you looking for a role where love, care, respect, forgiveness and excellence are celebrated and encouraged? Are you looking to work in a small school, with the enviable reputation of offering pupil's 'so much'? Then look no further than the GA Community!

Great Addington C of E Primary is a vibrant and popular school, with committed staff, governors and children. We have an enviable reputation as being the ‘small school’ that gives its children ‘so much.’ We aim to build upon the school's strengths and become an outstanding centre for learning within the community. Our vision for achieving this is through high quality teaching and learning with a commitment to valuing potential in all members of the GA community.
Striving to unlock the talents of all our pupils, we continually challenge them to achieve their best and develop the skills for a lifelong love of learning. It is only through challenge that students truly discover what they are capable of. No matter where we start in life, we recognise that all have the potential to achieve and at Great Addington Primary, we strive to ensure that they do.
We now have a fantastic opportunity for a passionate, enthusiastic and committed Class Teacher to join our Year 1/2 team. Seeking to support, inspire and lead our brilliant children, the successful candidate will be motivated with a drive to support the children’s personal and academic progression. We place care at the heart of all that we do and seek to appoint a candidate who shares in our passion and values in enabling all of our children to flourish. This role is a job share with the Head of School so the ability to work in a team is an absolute must! We welcome you to join our team to deliver the very best education for all of our pupils.

At Great Addington, we have recently undergone extensive site works, now offering a modern working environment for staff and children alike, that retains its special magic. Following a successful Ofsted inspection in March 2023, parents and carers could not speak more highly of our school, with one parent, typical of many, commenting ‘The staff and school are wonderful, and everyone contributes to the community feel of this school.’ Staff ensure that they check of pupil’s well-being every morning and pupils enjoy school and the know that staff care for them.

We hope the successful candidate of this role will continue this legacy throughout their work.

We are looking to appoint someone who:

  • Is enthusiastic, approachable and friendly
  • Ensures all children feel safe, happy and able to learn
  • Has an understanding of the curriculum and pastoral needs of primary aged children
  • Is able to deliver high quality first teaching
  • Is confident in using a range of behaviour management strategies
  • Has experience of effective subject leadership across the primary age range
  • Has the ability to work effectively, flexibly and independently and above all is a committed team member
  • Is supportive of the ethos of a Church and Trust school

In return, we can offer you:

  • A tight-knit, welcoming and caring school, that encourages everyone to give their best at all times, that aims to contribute all they can to our life as a school community. ‘Leaders are mindful of staff well-being. Staff say that they feel well supported by leaders and are proud to work for the school. Support from the Trust helps to reduce staff’s workload’ (Ofsted 2023).
  • A collaborative and supportive school community that is underpinned by the Christian ethos, driven by a shared passion of children’s welfare and education.
  • A rewarding and exciting working environment, that inspires and challenges within a supportive and welcoming atmosphere.
  • Access to a vast array of employee benefits and recognition systems, via our brand-new partnership with Vivup.
  • Employment within one of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts in Northamptonshire, with wider development and career opportunities.
