Upper Key Stage 2 Class Teacher job summary

Our School and the Vacancy

Sutton VA Lower is a successful, happy and welcoming school. We care deeply for our children; their welfare and progress. The Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS), in their 2017 inspection stated ‘Pupils all enjoy school. They feel safe and attain well above the national average. Each child is known individually to all staff. Relationships are excellent and pupils enjoy opportunities to work in family groups or across the age range. Parents praise the school’s Christian character and family atmosphere.’

We are a popular and typically, oversubscribed school, attracting children and families from Biggleswade, Potton and the surrounding villages. Our provision for our pupils has a justifiably high reputation and consequently parents chose to send their children to our school from outside of their catchment area school. They are attracted to and support the strong values, Christian ethos and child centred approach which form the basis of our vision and aims.

Currently we have 3 classes; an EYFS Class, a mixed age Year 1 – 2 Class and a mixed age Year 3 – 4 Class. We are converting to a Primary School from September 2024 with our first Year 5 Class, who will in September 2025 become our first Year 6 pupils. This will become a mixed Year 5 – 6 class from September 2025.

We are seeking to appoint an excellent, enthusiastic and committed teacher for our new Year 5 – 6 Class for September 2024. This is an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to be a leading contributor to the creation of our upper key stage two provision; with only 15 pupils in the first year!

We are a friendly and inclusive Church School, who have been rated ‘Good’ with Personal Development and Behaviour and Attitudes rated as ‘Outstanding’ in 2021 by Ofsted. Values Education is a strong thread across all aspects of school life. As a result; pupils and staff flourish, children demonstrate excellent behaviour and behaviour for learning, teachers deliver an engaging and creative curriculum where each individual is recognised and valued.

We are looking for someone who is:

Highly motivated, enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and learning

An excellent and reflective, classroom practitioner

A dedicated team player

Has experience of teaching Year 5 – 6 and KS2 SATs

We can offer you:

Excellent opportunities for professional development

A friendly and collaborative staff team where work life balance is valued

Small class sizes and high quality teaching assistant support

A supportive Governing body

Applications from experienced teachers with subject leadership experience are welcome.

Visits to our school are encouraged in order for you to appreciate our wonderful learning environment, the caring ethos and to meet our children and members of our dedicated team.
