At Gunton, we strive to ensure that all our pupils are happy, confident, ambitious individuals with a passion for learning; who possess the skills, knowledge, learning attitudes and behaviours to enable them to be successful in the world today, and in the future. We achieve this through creating a strong sense of community and by providing high quality teaching and learning opportunities through an inspiring curriculum.

We would love to hear from you if you are:

  • Passionate about enabling all children to achieve excellence
  • Highly dedicated to providing the highest standards of teaching for all children
  • Committed to achieving high standards of learning and behaviour for all
  • Enthusiastic, determined, dedicated and inspirational

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a successful, vibrant, popular and happy school that is part of a large, dynamic and supportive Trust. You will be joining a school that has children from Nursery age all the way through to Year 6. We are very much an integral part of the local community, with great relationships with our families, community groups and other local schools. Our facilities are well-maintained and we have long-term financial stability and sustainability. For the last 10 years we have been over-subscribed and many parents have actively chosen to transfer their children to us if and when a space occurs.

Our ethos is very child-centered and, like our Trust, we constantly strive to provide our children with exceptional opportunities, not just within the classroom but also in the wider curriculum of our school.

There are 3 key parts of our ethos: Grow, Persevere and Aspire. These encapsulate our purpose in preparing our children for a life of learning and to grow into confident, positive, responsible members of modern British society.

Our staff team is very friendly, skilled, experienced and highly-committed. We want someone to join us who believes that going that extra mile and making a difference to children’s life chances is a pleasure.
