What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors and Headteacher are seeking to appoint a dedicated and skilled teacher to join our successful team. This could either be in Key Stage 1 or 2 depending on the experience and strengths of the successful applicant.

We are looking for a highly effective classroom practitioner who is keen to develop professionally, is creative and passionate about teaching with high expectations of themselves and our pupils, plus someone who is resilient, determined and prepared to work hard. In return we can provide excellent mentoring and support, a dedicated and experienced team to work within and a school community which is motivated, visionary and has a great sense of humour.

What the school offers its staff

This is an exciting time to join Lipson Vale Primary School. We have recently launched a revised curriculum offer for our pupils linked tightly to our core vision, invested significantly in CPD on a Trauma Informed approach which underpins our ‘Relationships Policy’ and, over the last year, have been ensuring that all school development is research informed. On top of this, our efforts and drive for improvement were recognised in a ‘Good’ judgement from Ofsted (February 2022).

We believe passionately in developing leaders within education. We offer a bespoke coaching package to all leaders throughout the year which focuses on developing individuals as strategic leaders who can promote rich outcomes for all pupils through their actions.

If you enjoy working closely within a team of professionals to ensure the best outcomes for all of our pupils, we would be delighted to hear from you.
