What skills and experience we're looking for

Come and join a village primary school that is part of an outstanding collaboration of academies who work together to become ‘beacons on the moors’, representing our interconnected rural communities where learning is embedded in the land, working collaboratively to each provide a unique, world-class education to prepare our pupils for the next stage in their life journeys.’

We are looking to appoint a colleague to join us as a ‘Teacher-in-Charge’ and KS2 (Y3-6) Class Teacher. This is potentially an excellent training ground for a Headship or other senior leader role. Regrettably, this opportunity is not suitable for ECTs.

This is a permanent post, ideally to start in January 2024, although an April start will be considered for the right person.

We are looking for:

  • A skilled professional who has an engaging and inspirational style of teaching and can differentiate across KS2.
  • Someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure our children achieve their very best, and promotes academic excellence
  • An established teacher with a flair and passion for primary education who will embrace working and teaching in our school.
  • A professional with senior leadership skills or aspirations to develop these, who can contribute and lead on school development initiatives.
  • A highly-organised individual who is able to manage the day-to-day operation running of a small school, balanced with their own teaching commitment, in the absence of Executive Headteacher (who also leads Glaisdale Primary School).
  • Someone who will embrace our nurture principles and a nurturing approach to supporting children with a range of needs.
  • The ability to act as the deputy designated safeguarding lead.
  • A leader who can support the development of subjects/initiatives across their own school and others.

What the school offers its staff

We can offer you:

  • Delightful children who respect each other, have a thirst for learning new things and a staff culture which allows new members to thrive and develop.
  • Opportunities to further develop your craft and a leadership team that will support your ideas and use school resources to help your career aspirations.
  • Significant leadership experience and development opportunities within Castleton and across the trust.
  • Opportunities to support other schools’ development.
  • A village school where staff tell us they ‘have tailored professional opportunities and are encouraged to play their part in our distributed leadership structure.’
  • Children who love being here and, in their words, ‘Castleton is a happy school and we learn from each other.’
  • An ambitious team and trust with a vision to make their schools ‘beacons on the moors’ – a location of outstanding practice which could be shared with all.

Further details about the role

Context of the school

Castleton School currently has 52 pupils on roll across two classes: Acorns (EYFS/KS1) and Oaks (KS2). Our children love the great outdoors and our rural location provides lots of opportunities for adventurous activities. All our pupils have regular outdoor learning sessions, in our extensive school grounds or within the local area.

We are looking for someone who can continue to nurture relationships with pupils, parents, governors and staff and who takes real pride in being part of our school community.

Castleton and Glaisdale schools share one Headteacher, who is based in each school throughout the week, supported by an enthusiastic team. Castleton and Glaisdale are founding members of a group of schools (West Cliff, Airy Hill, Lealholm, Oakridge, Castleton and Glaisdale), known as the Yorkshire Endeavour Academy Trust (YEAT), and we work closely to provide support and development opportunities to all staff.

Here at Castleton Primary, we are proud to take our wonderful children from Castleton and surrounding villages. In a small school such as ours, teamwork and excellent communication are vital, and we are looking for someone who is willing to pitch in with all aspects of school life to help us offer the very best experiences to our pupils
