What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you a teacher, higher-level teaching assistant, or childcare worker looking for a fresh, new opportunity?

New Field Study Centre

East Whitby Academy has been chosen as the site for the Enquire Learning Trust’s exciting new residential centre. The field study centre is a new initiative designed to create inspiring places and experiences for our children.

Our Opportunity

Our brand new centre offers overnight stays for up to 2-nights, 3 days; we anticipate in our busiest times there will be 2 groups per week.

You will work closely with the centre manager, school catering team, and the visiting schools to provide exciting and memorable experiences for pupils during their stay. Each school will have a bespoke package made for them, planning the activities and resourcing needed.

You will deliver a range of activities, with a core commitment to delivering the highest quality outdoor field work.

This is a wonderfully exciting and multifaceted role, you will act as a teacher to lead and deliver sessions, you will be a planner putting together bespoke packages for schools, you will act as a local guide – you may have the joy of showing pupils the wonderful town of Whitby for the first time. This role is varied, no two days or school trips are the same.

You will not be expected to stay overnight, however you will work closely with the schools to ensure evening programmes are ready to be delivered independently each night and making sure pre-booked evening meals and breakfasts have been organised with the school catering team.

There will be an expectation that the days will be slightly different to “school timings” as such the candidate will need to be available for traditional office hours of 9-5/5:30 rather than school hours.

We are looking for an individual who shares our passion to join the newly established team responsible for delivering a first-class offer of outdoor curriculum-based learning in our new field study centre.

Required Skills/Knowledge:

  • Experience in leading school visits
  • Significant experience working with children and young people
  • A team player with a commitment to supporting colleagues and working cohesively to solve problems and ensure the best experience for service users
  • Knowledge of primary geography, art, history and science curriculum
  • Ability to communicate well with a variety of stakeholders and build relationships with external agencies, visiting staff and pupils
  • Detailed knowledge of the local area would be a significant advantage but if this isn’t already held, ability to develop this knowledge over time would be essential

What the school offers its staff

The Enquire Learning Trust

We are a multi-academy trust currently responsible for 32 academies in four clusters across the North of England; North East Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, Hull, Manchester, Teesside and North Yorkshire.

Our academies work in collaboration with one another, sharing both their talent and ideas with others, giving employees the opportunity to learn from individuals within our other academies.

Dear applicant,

Allow me to extend a warm welcome from all governors, staff and children of East Whitby Primary Academy. 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 life long learners.

We are looking for a teacher who can take the love of learning that our children come to school with each day, and use it to inspire awe and wonder; someone who can embrace all aspects of the curriculum.

Teaching at East Whitby is incredibly rewarding. Due to our well-deserved reputation across the area we place huge importance on developing talent – and in many ways our ‘project based ethos has resulted in many staff leading on whole school projects. 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 a proud primary member of the Enquire Learning Trust (a specialist primary trust of 29 schools), our team are working in partnership with our sister school Stakesby 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 the soon to launched 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.

Simon Smith
