We fully support family life and welcome job-share applicants to these posts and applicants who wish to work full-time.


Teacher on the Main Pay Scale 3 to Upper Pay Scale 3 (possible recruitment and retention allowance)


Are you looking for an exciting challenge to continue developing a school that has made rapid progress in the last two years? We are particularly interested in receiving applications from teachers with at least three years of teaching experience who share the school's values of Creativity, Kindness and Adventure and would love to develop continuous provision within Key Stage 1or 2. We are a school where 98% of parents would recommend the school to other parents and where 100% of staff feel that their work has a strong purpose and makes a positive difference to the lives of children. Do you want a role where you will be making a difference in children’s lives and their future? Larkrise Primary School needs an excellent teacher with vision and a passion for working with our Year 1 children.

Can you motivate and support children to learn? Can you work with the Larkrise team to provide an excellent education? If so, we can offer the right candidate: enthusiastic children, passionate staff, committed PTA (Friends of Larkrise), and governors. Our leaders are ambitious for the staff, children and wider school community and are committed to your continued professional development and learning.

Our school is part of the River Learning Trust: Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. All of the schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to our shared principles.

OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including wide ranging continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.

This role includes regulated activity relevant to children.

Application forms should be made via MyNewTerm

Closing date: 12 Noon on Monday 18th March

Shortlisting and Interview date: Shortlisting will take place as applications are received and interviews will be arranged after successful shortlisting. (We reserve the right to consider and interview candidates before the closing date if appropriate).

Annual pay increase for support staff (in line with grade boundaries) and for Teachers, where we begin from the assumption that every main scale M1-5 teacher will get an annual pay rise and we work in a culture of utter transparency and ‘no surprises’ when making decisions about pay progression.

  • A Defined Benefit Pension Scheme with favourable terms for all employees

  • (Teachers Pension for Teachers; LGPS for Support Staff)
