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
