What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking a well-qualified teacher to join our MFL team on a temporary basis to cover the maternity absence of the current postholder. Our ideal candidate will have a track record of delivering great learning experiences in the classroom and supporting others to do the same.

What the school offers its staff

The inspection team noted that ‘pupils are proud to attend’ Elton with an established culture of ‘high aspirations for what pupils can achieve’. Our students achieve well, with inspectors being particularly impressed with the climate for learning and behaviour of our students – their ‘positive behaviour at all times is characteristic of the respectful culture of this school [and] their positive conduct reflects leaders’ high standards’. This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented and experienced teacher to demonstrate impact in a key subject area.

We have a strong system of staff training in place aimed at developing the very best practice and we have a constant focus on ensuring that all of our team feel supported to give of their best and to have a work life balance. We pride ourselves on taking a proactive approach to promoting the wellbeing of everyone in our school community.
