What the school offers its staff

Burwell Village College Primary School is an exciting place to work. We have completely restructured the way we deliver the curriculum and made a significant investment in staff development. We are determined that the school will provide the best possible opportunities for pupils and teachers and therefore we have invested significant time and money into developing the best curriculum. Our structure allows pupils to make choices and take some ownership over what they are learning. We have also given teachers additional time for professional development (½ day per week) to ensure that we can be the best teaching team, learning from each other and developing deep professional knowledge.

We are looking for teachers who are outstanding practitioners or have the potential to be. We need staff who are inspiring and motivating for pupils, able to think about learning and deliver it in an interesting and engaging way. We have a strong support package for teachers, including joint PPA time giving opportunities to share ideas; strong, knowledgeable senior leaders who have time out of the classroom to focus on developing teaching and learning, and opportunities to create and refine our own curriculum.

The children here are well-behaved, hard-working and eager to learn. The facilities are fantastic with space and equipment readily available. Parents are keen to support the school and are positive about the improvements already being made.

This is a brilliant opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of the over four hundred children. If you really want to have a measurable impact on children’s life chances, Burwell could be the school for you.
