Want a great job in a great school in a great location?

You will have to work hard here, but only on things that make a difference: we don’t do meaningless paperwork; we don’t grade lessons or monitor your planning. Instead of marking we give feedback in lessons. We are always trying to find better ways to do our work. We only recruit people who are passionate about making a difference to children’s lives, people who challenge themselves to keep on improving. This means our working relationships can be relatively relaxed and informal. People love working here; we are warm, welcoming, positive, supportive and forward looking. Our innovative approaches means that teachers from Bristol and beyond come to see our work in practice, so expect to welcome visitors into your classroom.

You will be joining a 4-form entry community school, with an inclusive and multi-cultural ethos based in the diverse Lockleaze/Horfield area of North Bristol. Our community includes pupils and staff from a range of different cultures – all are welcome. We work together to foster children who are collaborative, aspirational, respectful and focused on learning, as well as academically successful.

We are looking for a teacher who:

• Has a proven record of success as a class teacher and expertise in empowering children to make rapid progress

• Demonstrates optimism about children and expects the highest possible standards

• Nurtures pupils’ emotional wellbeing

We offer you:

• Sensible and successful systems, based on research, with a commitment to reduce workload wherever possible

• A positive, warm and welcoming working environment

• Experienced, intelligent, supportive colleagues

• Family-friendly working practices

About Filton Avenue Primary School

Filton Avenue Primary School shares a campus with Filton Avenue Nursery and Children's Centre although they remain separate schools.

The former Infant and Junior schools merged to become Filton Avenue Primary School in September 2015. The infant school moved to academy status in 2012 within a trust (Trust in Learning Academies (TiLA)) with two other schools including Orchard School Bristol.

The pupils are drawn from a diverse range of back grounds in the Horfield / Lockleaze area some coming from further away. The school aims to offer a rich, broad and balanced curriculum.

We have very committed staff teams across School. We have non-class based SENCo/INCo and we run a range of therapeutic services such as Thrive, as well as having a highly trained teaching assistant team who are able to deliver a wide range of interventions.
