We are entering our final year of growth and opening a number of new classes within KS2. With this expansion, we are now looking to recruit a Newly Qualified Teacher to work in either our Infant or Junior Sections. We have a flexible staffing body and therefore can accommodate trainees in either part of the Primary School. We are particularly interested in candidates with strong pedagogical knowledge and a clear vision for delivering rigour within the primary curriculum. We can accommodate a June or September start and can provide suitable candidates with extensive training and development opportunities including funding for Post Graduate studies.

About Mayfield School

We operate an “Outstanding” Pre-School and Nursery with reduced fees and preferential access for Mayfield staff. We have been successful in our bid to receive ‘Priority School Building’ funding which will result in the construction of a multi-million, ‘state of the art’ new build on the current school site which is due to open in summer 2021. In September 2016, OfSTED conducted a section 5 inspection and found all areas to be ‘good’ and in summer 2018 the school secured it’s best ever results across all key stages. All staff members have the opportunity to work across all sections of the school depending on their interest, skills and experience. During this period of growth, we have a number of vacancies in all sections and truly believe “our only limitation is our ambition”. Before you apply for a post at Mayfield please ensure you have read and embrace our ways of working and ethos by reading our Staff Handbook. Mayfield is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
