What skills and experience we're looking for

This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic team of great teachers based at Yeo Valley Primary School in Barnstaple and become part of forward thinking and growing multi academy trust.

We are seeking to recruit a Reception Teacher to commence work in the summer term.

We value our dynamic and supportive community, where teachers collaborate to deliver an ambitious curriculum and provide outstanding education for children aged 2–5 years. In this role, you will be responsible for providing experiences which build on children’s existing knowledge and understanding in order to challenge, stimulate and extend their learning and development. You will encourage children’s independence and decision-making, supporting them to learn through their mistakes. You will teach lessons that align with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, ensuring each child's individual learning needs are met. Additionally, you'll have opportunities for professional development to enhance your teaching skills and contribute to our broader network of educational excellence.

The ideal candidate will have experience in Early Years education and a solid understanding of the EYFS curriculum. Creativity, passion for teaching young children, an understanding of the importance of play and a commitment to ongoing professional growth are key. Collaboration within a team environment is also essential, as you'll work closely with colleagues to deliver quality education and support children’s holistic development.

What the school offers its staff

We have enhanced the teachers’ pay and conditions through the provision of a health scheme, a cycle to work scheme, an electric car scheme, performance related pay progression and subsidised meals in our staff café, with food cooked and served by our own chefs. Successful candidates will be provided with state-of-the-art IT equipment and will work in modern, digitally enabled classrooms where children have access to their own Microsoft Surface device. To enable teachers to become the best they can be, we support them with a weekly investment in their professional development through training. We provide an online personalised training portal to enable each teacher to develop at their own pace. For ECT’s we deliver a weekly programme with specialist support from our ECT programme leader, a mentor and inputs delivered by experienced teachers.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.
