Teacher job summary

St Matthew’s Primary School are looking for a teacher to join their vibrant school in September 2024.


As a large and ever growing school, St Matthew’s has the flexibility to offer a position in Early Years, KS1 or KS2 and can offer you a year group team to work in, led by an experienced Team Leader. As well as being part of a year group team, St Matthew’s also recognises that you will have an individual teaching style and welcomes new ideas.


Whilst St Matthew’s is one of the largest primary schools in Luton, it has a calm, personal and happy atmosphere. We are a big school with small community habits and pride ourselves on everyone’s personal, academic and professional well-being and this is a cornerstone of our ethos. The sense of being in an ambitious, supportive family is often commented on by children, parents, staff and visitors alike.


Getting the right people to work with our children is paramount for us, so if you want children to feel safe, be happy, be excited, love coming to school and to progress each and every day, maybe you should join our team.


From our new teacher we ask you to:

  • Understand and believe that the pastoral care of pupils is paramount

  • Be a positive, optimistic and proactive team player

  • Be an exemplary practitioner in all regards

  • Have ambition and aspiration for all pupils

  • Show demonstrable impact in your current role


In return we can offer you:

  • A truly child centred, friendly and holistic school

  • A strong team and school community

  • A safe and nurturing environment for our staff as well as our pupils

  • A supportive and solution focused Team Leader and SLT who are dedicated to making a difference in children’s lives.

  • A true sense of moral purpose that the whole staff live by.


As well as:

  • Dedicated specialist teams to support the work of teachers e.g. PE team, Language team and Family team

  • Teaching Assistant support in all year groups

  • Lots of extra-curricular activities and trips for the children

  • Progression pathways

  • Access to an Employee Assistance Programme

  • Comprehensive whole school CPD programme

  • Comprehensive individual CPD programme e.g. NPQML

  • Onsite parking

  • A well-equipped staff room, access to school lunches and a central location with many amenities in very short walking distance


We all know a picture speaks a thousand words, so a visit to St Matthew’s is the only way to understand why you would want to work here…people who step over our threshold are amazed by the atmosphere, calmness and vibrancy of our school.


So call for an informal chat about the post, arrange a visit or apply now and take a step towards your future career at St Matthew’s!

Applications will be considered upon receipt.
