‘Come and join a village primary school that is part of an outstanding teaching alliance and a national English hub’

If you want to work in a village setting with wonderful well behaved children, supportive leadership and tailored professional learning opportunities then we want to hear from you!
Here at Lealholm Primary School we share a special and unique learning community with Glaisdale and Castleton Primaries, and we are proud to serve the village of Lealholm and surrounding areas around Whitby. The three schools are also part of a newly formed group of academies with Airy Hill and Westcliff in Whitby, known as Yorkshire Endeavour Academy Trust (YEAT).

YEAT is also one of the first 32 schools nationally to be a designated ‘English Hub’ which delivers excellence in early language and phonics teaching in reception and KS1.
Our learning environment and education provision that is offered to our 28 children on roll is second to none and Ofsted in May 2013, and recent school reviews judge us to be a ‘good’ school.

Our teachers benefit from a team of highly skilled Teaching Assistants that play an important part in school life. Life at our schools is calm, purposeful and enjoyable.
We have smaller than average classes, and highly supportive staff, governors, families and community. By having three distinct schools working as one has allowed our EYFS, KS1 and KS2 teachers to share work load, curriculum ideas and best practice.

Our ongoing development in terms of educational achievement and commitment to raising standards is at the forefront of our thinking, and we have a great induction package in place to support you in your professional development throughout your time at Lealholm and at YEAT.

If you are an NQT you be supported by our head teacher and other members of the Academy. You will receive an additional 10% of the week dedicated to your own CPD needs, which will be ideal for those new to teaching or new to mixed-aged classes.
