What the school offers its staff

This permanent position offers an exciting opportunity for an Early Careers teacher or more experienced professional, ready to join our team of dedicated staff.

St Cuthbert's is one of eight schools that are part of the Blessed Edward Bamber Multi Academy Trust (BEBCMAT) and has a particularly close and unique relationship with Christ the King Catholic Academy (both schools are led by the same leadership team).

Governors are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, skilled teacher who will support the schools’ aspirations for improving the life chances of the children and families we serve. The post is permanent at St Cuthbert’s and the successful candidate would take up the position from 17th April 2023.

The position advertised involves leading an effective play based learning environment that will in turn make a significant contribution to the positive educational outcomes of our children. Both of our rapidly improving schools are one form entry however shared planning, organisation and discussion opportunities are frequent between our two sites. There are also opportunities to move between sites, in future years should this be something that interests you.

St Cuthbert’s early years outdoor area is just about to start a significant make over. The space has been in need of investment for many years and around 12 months ago we secured funding to complete the transformation. Designs were completed last year and we are waiting patiently for our “slot” within the firm’s timetable to become available. The successful candidate can still influence and engage in this great project for our early years team.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Governors and the Diocese are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young persons and class teachers must ensure that the highest priority is given to following the guidance and regulations to safeguard children and young people. The successful candidate will be required to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure from the DBS and obtain any other statutorily required clearance.

Please note that in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 guidance, an online search will be carried out as part of our due diligence on shortlisted candidates
