‘Staff are proud to work at the school and feel very well supported by leaders. Pupils are attentive, confident and enthusiastic’. (Ofsted 2018)

Here at Hunmanby Primary School we have created a happy school where everyone is inspired, enjoys and achieves every single day. Over the years, we have continually focused on making sure our children are nurtured, cared for and inspired to achieve their very best – by investing in our curriculum, educational setting and our staff.

Our values and ethos of ‘a school that inspires, enjoy and achieves’ is firmly embedded and we are constantly told by visitors, parents and the local authority that our school has a real warmth and energy about it. To be a teaching colleague at Hunmanby you have to be inclusive, inspiring and have the highest expectations for our children.

We are looking very much to the future. Ofsted visited us in November 2018 where we maintained our ‘good’ judgement and we are clear about our priorities moving forward. As a school we are well placed to achieve outstanding and sustained outcomes for our children, and we want our new colleague to add their own ideas and strategies to our school – where you will find a culture of team work and self-reflection, which is testament to our highly organised and stable staff team.

Our Opportunity

It has been many years since we last advertised a teaching post at our school, and we are excited about the arrival of our new teaching colleague. We are looking to recruit a talented and inspiring teacher to join us in KS2 (potentially in year 4) from September 2021.

We are looking for a teacher who is willing to accept the challenge and opportunity that subject leadership brings.

Without question you will be supported and challenged in your teaching practice and career aspirations. You will either be starting, or will be on your way within the profession as a classroom practitioner. We would love the opportunity to see you thrive and develop your career here at Hunmanby Primary School.

We are looking for:

• A skilled professional who has an engaging and dynamic style of teaching within KS2.
• Someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure our children achieve their very best, and promotes academic excellence.
• A teacher with a flair and passion for primary education and who will embrace working and teaching in our school.

We can offer you:

• A warm, happy school where we value our community ethos and have a philosophy of treating each other with kindness and respect.
• Happy, enthusiastic and well behaved children.
• A school with unique and inspiring learning environments.
• An opportunity to work with an experienced and committed team and take a leading role in a school determined to reach the highest standards.

We are proud to work alongside our fellow primary and secondary schools and we believe we have a unique opportunity for colleagues to grow, develop and thrive in their career as part of our coastal community.

About Hunmanby Primary School

Dear applicant,

Allow me to extend a warm welcome from all governors, staff and children of Hunmanby Primary School. I am delighted you have shown interest in joining us as our new teaching colleague and hope to give you an insight into what an exciting and inspiring place our school is.

I am very proud of the pupils and the dedicated and enthusiastic staff who work so hard to provide a secure, happy and stimulating environment.

Considerable investment has gone into our learning environments and enrichment experiences, which includes an allotment garden with fruit cage and heritage orchard, large polytunnel, river of wild flowers, shelter and willow dome and a range of themed flower beds. We even have chickens!

All of this is driven by a desire to make our vision of a ‘happy, caring and inclusive school where we inspire, enjoy and achieve’ a reality, providing pupils with every opportunity to achieve their full potential and become confident, independent learners.

We are excited to offer our first teaching vacancy for many years, and the opportunity this appointment will bring to our school. We are looking for a colleague who shares the same ethos and values, understands our community and can continue to provide the inspired teaching our children thrive on and deserve!

This is an exciting time to join us. As part of the North Yorkshire Coast Opportunity Area we are working together with our coastal primaries to share, learn and create a beacon of excellence our area can be proud of. Through our school we are able to access the support and resources our area offers 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 school such a special place to work.

Good luck with your application. I look forward to reading it.

Conrad Fox
