Teacher of Primary job summary

With the expansion of the school, we are looking to recruit additional classroom teachers within our Primary Section. This role would suit an Early Career Teacher or an experienced colleague looking to work within an ‘all through’ setting. We have opportunities within EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Mayfield is a community school and as such we offer all of the benefits associated with being a Maintained School. The behaviour of pupils across the school is excellent and underpinned by well resourced and dedicated SEN and Behaviour Teams. A significant number of our staff have chosen to send their own children to the school and therefore we have a very strong ethos and “buy in” for our vision.

Mayfield is a very successful and heavily oversubscribed school in the north of Portsmouth City. We are one of the first state, single-site, ‘all through’ schools in the country. We operate an “Outstanding” Pre-School and Nursery with reduced fees and preferential access for Mayfield staff.

In July 2013 Mayfield School secured approval from Portsmouth City Council to extend our age range from 11-16 to 4-16 and become the city’s first ‘all through’ school and one of only a handful of state, single site, ‘all through’ schools in the country. With this change in status, the school undertook a significant building programme drawing on over £4 million in additional capital to create Primary facilities.

In September 2014, we welcomed the first intake into our primary section and became one of the most oversubscribed (5 applications per place) schools in the city, with 60 pupils joining us, many of whom were in our pre-school. Each year the school will continue to admit 60 pupils into Year R (plus an additional 30 into Year 3) until the primary section fills by September 2020 and the school reaches its maximum capacity of 1540 pupils across all phases.

In September 2016, Mayfield was inspected by OfSTED and was judged as ‘good’ in all areas. In particular, inspectors noted:

“A comprehensive staff training programme has been the key driver in improving teaching in classrooms over the last two years”;
“The behaviour of pupils is good. The school runs smoothly on a day to day basis with a clear code of conduct”;
“Across the school, pupils benefit from positive relationships with their teachers”.

Following a successful bid for Priority School Building Project funds, we moved into a brand new, purpose built, ‘all through’ school on the east field of the school site. Within this building there is a specialist SEN centre with a number of intervention spaces across the building.

Before you apply for a post at Mayfield please ensure you have read and embrace our ways of working and ethos by reading our Staff Handbook.

Mayfield is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to criminal records bureau checks along with other relevant pre-employment checks.
