This position is temporary in the first instance, with a possibility that it will become permanent after the initial 12 months.

KS1 and KS2 teachers are invited to apply as we'll be able to reorganise our team for the right person.

We're seeking to appoint an outstanding teacher who shares our commitment to the highest standards, where our children can live and learn in a happy and safe environment. We're committed to raising attainment and accelerating progress through effective pedagogy, a comprehensive curriculum and rigour in everything we do.The successful candidate will need to demonstrate motivation and enthusiasm. Our commitment to reducing teacher workload is clear in how we organise PPA time. This is always alongside colleagues in school, so you'll benefit from lots of support from other experienced teachers in the same phase.

What the school offers its staff

For children and staff alike, our school has:

  • a perfect balance of care and support with high expectations
  • a leadership team dedicated to attainment, achievement and enjoyment friendly, welcoming staff
  • a great atmosphere and ethos which promotes inclusion and co-operation
  • a commitment to diversity and a workforce that reflects the population of Leeds
  • a commitment to avoiding unnecessary workload and to supporting teachers' wellbeing
  • a commitment to safeguarding and promoting welfare and safety (thorough checks will be made of the successful applicant’s background credentials, including enhanced DBS checks)

Further details about the role

We welcome applications from both experienced teachers and early career teachers (ECTs). We have a strong track record of supporting ECTs. The post involves working closely with other teachers within our school, across the phase and across Sphere Federation (Moortown Primary; Scholes (Elmet) Primary; St James' CE Primary). This position is based at Moortown Primary. However, if you're interested in working for us, we're currently recruiting teachers for September in all Sphere Federation schools. There's no need to apply separately for each school - just make it clear on your application that you'd like to be considered for one, two or all three positions

Closing date for applications is 19 April, 12 noon. Interviews will take place 26/27/28 April 2023. For further information and an insight into our federation please check out our website, or contact us with any questions.
