If the above resonates with you, an exciting opportunity has arisen in Salisbury for you to be part of the successful team shaping its vision for education at our school, St. Peter’s CE Primary Academy. OFSTED noted our many strengths when they inspected in November 2022 and we are now deep into the next stage of our expansion and development.

This is the perfect role for a teacher with at least 3 years of exceptional classroom practice under their belt and a thirst to progress as a middle and senior leader. In addition to teaching a single-age KS2 class, the successful candidate will lead assessment across the school, including reviewing pupil outcomes, producing reports, leading pupil progress meetings and planning interventions, catch-up and tuition. Don't be intimidated by the scope of this role. We have exceptional leaders that will support you into this position. Likewise, our trust has an active assessment leaders network that will help you grow into and thrive in the role!
