What skills and experience we're looking for

We are a small Catholic primary school based in Caversham Park Village, Reading. We are a thriving community, where staff are passionate about providing stimulating learning experiences for all children. Our children are well-behaved and enthusiastic about learning and their parents are supportive and helpful. We have a very active Parent Staff Association which regularly organises community and fundraising events to support the school.

St. Martin’s is a busy, happy place with lots going on, including an award-winning Glee Club!

We are looking for an enthusiastic and resilient teacher, with excellent classroom practice to join our supportive team. We put the children at the centre of everything we do, and therefore you should have the ability to inspire and enthuse the children as they progress in their learning journey.

We can offer you:

  • small class sizes meaning that you can concentrate on the children as individuals

  • a friendly supportive staff team

  • opportunities to broaden your experience through visits to and shared training with our federated school, St. Anne’s
