We are seeking a passionate, hardworking and committed teacher to join our exciting team.

We are proud of our nurturing environment and high standards (in class and out of class), and therefore are looking for someone with the following qualities:

  • A strong teaching practitioner who has experience in Key Stage 1 and/or Key Stage 2.

They will be able to develop their leadership skills in our unique school, spearheading new initiatives and driving forward exciting changes, all with the support of a hard-working, research-focused and engaging SLT.

All our successful applicants will be expected to embrace life as a ‘primary school’ across two sites (including travelling between sites). Although we are C of E schools, applicants do not need to be of Christian faith; all faiths or no particular religion are welcomed to apply.

We are proud of our team and what we can offer staff who wish to join us. We recognise that joining a new school is as much about what we can provide as it is about what the successful applicant can give to us. Therefore, we offer the following through our school and The Keys Academy Trust:

  • A dedicated leadership team who go above and beyond for the staff.
  • A commitment to your professional development, with a bespoke career pathway (both within Polehampton and within our Trust) which includes locally-delivered NPQs (through our Trust delivery team), leadership opportunities (including leading subject areas or school improvement), and a comprehensive CPD package (including ECT training).
  • Collaboration and workload sharing with other schools within the Trust.
  • An exciting chance to work in a unique set of schools across two sites.

We are dynamic, inspirational and over-subscribed Infant and Junior schools, ensuring the best possible learning experiences and outcomes for all our children.

Our core Christian values are at the heart of all we do and our Christian culture of compassion and consideration for each other touches every area of school life. The school community enjoys strong links with our local Church in a mutually supportive and beneficial partnership. We contribute to and are enriched through our involvement with the Church and the local community.

Our two schools work very closely together as the Polehampton Schools; two schools, one journey with a shared senior leadership team. This ensures a smooth transition and strong progress from the Foundation Stage through to the end of Year Six. Our children are well-equipped for secondary school and prepared to be compassionate, reflective and successful life-long learners in an ever-changing world.

Everyone is committed to excellence, improvement and the pursuit of high standards academically, physically, artistically, as well as spiritually, morally, socially and culturally. Our united, respectful and respected team of adults consistently applies best practice, modelling the school’s deeply embedded drivers of community, curiosity and cultural diversity.

Our amazingly supportive parental community help to enable the school to flourish and grow. We have a highly committed and proactive Governing body who work with the school team, appropriately supporting and challenging so that high standards are sustained in an encouraging and warm environment that values everyone.
