What skills and experience we're looking for

We are a welcoming, inclusive and forward looking academy that works hard to ensure all our wonderful children enjoy their time with us.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, creative and highly skilled teacher who will join an existing strong team and help us provide the best education and experience possible for our fantastic pupils.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work alongside a large year group team (each of our four year groups has three or four classes) as part of our dedicated, supportive and caring wider team of staff. You will plan collaboratively and deliver an exciting curriculum to the children in your class.

Ideally, we would like the successful candidate to have experience of teaching within Key Stage Two and delivering a cross curricula approach but more than anything, we want someone who is willing to give their best and learn alongside us all. It is essential that you can engage and motivate young people and, through your efforts, ensure they achieve high standards in all areas of learning and behaviour. We need a team player who can proactively contribute to the further development of our school.

We are seeking someone who is:

  • Aspirational – setting high standards and acting as a positive role model, leading by example
  • Resilient - demonstrates the ability to prioritise workload, work to specific deadlines and seek the support of others when needed
  • Reflective – is open-minded, self-evaluative and adaptable to changing circumstances and new ideas
  • Positive – has the ability to inspire, challenge, motivate and empower others
  • Compassionate - demonstrates respect and kindness to pupils, staff and other stakeholders
  • Collaborate - values the importance of a strong team and work hard to develop strong professional relationships with others
  • Dedicated – shows self-motivation and a commitment to continued professional development
  • Someone able to build effective, strong working relationships with others and who leads by example

Culture and ethos:

  • Proactively promote and demonstrate the Diocese’s vision and values in all aspects of work
  • Challenge, motivate and empower others to set high aspirations and attain ambitious outcomes
  • Treat everyone as a valued individual who is loved by God
  • Promote and demonstrate a culture of continuous improvement which includes keeping abreast of educational developments and best management practice
  • Work collaboratively developing the concept of family across the Trusts and their academies
  • Ensure regular open and honest communication in all professional duties
  • Recognise the importance of serving the wider community and promoting inclusivity.
  • Undertake such other reasonable duties as may be required from time to time as are consistent with the responsibilities of the grade.

The duties and responsibilities highlighted in this job specification are indicative and may vary over time. Postholders are expected to undertake other duties and responsibilities relevant to the nature, level and scope of the post and the grade has been established on this basis.


The safety and well-being of children is central to our ethos, and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to provide references and undertake the Independent Safeguarding Authority checks including an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and comply with the Safeguarding Policy and child protection practices of the Trust.


The Diocese of Norwich Education Services Company (DONESC) has a strong commitment to achieving equality of opportunity in its academies and in the employment of people. The post holder will ensure that the DONESC meets its statutory obligations in relation to all aspects of equalities legislation. This post involves regular travel around the Diocese and maybe some evening and weekend work. This job description is not an exhaustive document. It reflects the duties and responsibilities applicable at the time of issue. Details and emphasis are subject to amendment and revision in the light of the changing of DONESC.
