‘Working to Learn Together’

Here at Newby & Scalby Primary School we provide a vibrant and inspirational setting and due to our popularity our catchment area covers right across Scarborough town and beyond.

Our learning environment, outcomes and curriculum that is offered to our 418 children is second to none and we are a school with low staff turnover and high staff retention.
Our ethos is very much about our community ‘working to learn together’ and our staff are our greatest resource. We have invested in both our teaching and support staff teams which has placed us in a good position with regards to current educational challenges.

As the founding primary member of the Coast and Vale Learning Trust we are working closely with our sister school Friarage Primary as we share learning and build a primary hub our coastal area can be proud of. With access to the Teaching Alliance, based at Scalby School, we continue to rightly place staff development, training and resources at the heart of our journey.

Our support staff are highly regarded and we pride ourselves on developing our support colleagues to excel and further develop their career through specialised training and career paths through to ATA, HLTA status and teacher training.

We encourage applications from candidates who have a passion for education and wish to work in a setting which offers reward and challenge and where no two days are the same.

• Ideally have previous experience in working with children and young people
• Be able to support in the delivery of high quality learning experiences for all pupils
• Be supportive, nurturing and understanding

About Newby and Scalby Primary School

Dear applicant,

Allow me to extend a warm welcome from all governors, staff and children of Newby & Scalby Primary School. I am delighted you have shown interest in joining us and I look forward to sharing with you what makes our school a very special place to work.

Our children are delightful, happy, confident and energetic. They are passionate about their learning, be it in the classroom or through other areas of our developed curriculum such as dance, art, PE and music.

Over many years together we have built a learning community that puts the whole child and their development, along with harnessing the skills of our staff at our very heart. You will be joining a school with low staff turnover and high staff retention and as Headteacher it is my job to make sure colleagues are supported and challenged to be lifelong learners.

Working at Newby &Scalby is incredibly rewarding. Due to our well-deserved reputation across the area we place huge importance on developing talent – and in many ways our ‘research school’ ethos has resulted in many staff being developed as a support professional. I still get an incredible buzz from seeing our children reach their full potential through our staff training and development focus.

This is an exciting time to join us. As the founding primary member of the Coast and Vale Learning Trust, our team are working in partnership with our sister school Friarage Primary to share, learn and create a primary hub our area can be proud of. Through our Trust we are able to access the support and resources from our Teaching School, which means as a staff member you have a wide range of colleagues, tools and resources to help you develop not just in the classroom but beyond.

I hope that you will take the time to come and see and experience for yourself the warm and welcoming atmosphere which makes our vision a reality.

Good luck with your application. I look forward to reading it.

Chris Kirkham- Knowles
Headteacher
