Re: Class Teacher Year 4 (Maternity Cover)
Thank you for expressing your interest in the fixed term year 4 class teacher post at St Peter’s Primary
School. This is a maternity cover from 14th March 2022 until 14th March 2023, or sooner if the post holder
returns. We are keen to appoint an excellent primary practitioner to join our large and vibrant staff. We
have a track record of developing excellent classroom practitioners and we support each other to be
reflective expert teachers through our own CPD programme, Excellence as Standard Pedagogy and
expectations for effective teaching. We welcome applications from ECTs and will be offering all the
benefits of the Early Career Framework provision.
We are proud of the values, standards and facilities that we are able to offer to children and families in
the Portishead area. St Peter’s is the oldest school in Portishead and has been serving the local community
for over two hundred years. As such, we offer experience and tradition as well as a commitment to provide
a primary education that is fit for children growing up in the twenty-first century.
At St Peter’s, we base everything we do on cutting edge practice and foster an ethos of continuous
learning for both children and staff. We were designated a teaching school in 2017 and lead on professional
development across the Lighthouse Schools’ MAT. We aim for all of our teaching staff to keep on
improving, because we know each of us can do this and we recognise the impact that this has on the
children we teach. In October 2018, we were also designated one of 32 English Hubs in England and, since
then, have worked with hundreds of others schools, in the region, to improve pupil attainment in phonics
and early reading. Being aspirational for every child in our care is a key driver for us at St Peter’s.
St Peter’s has a deservedly high reputation for academic, creative and sporting excellence. Pupil
attainment in all phases is also high. The school is set in a beautiful quiet location, with plenty of space to
learn and play. As well as our large playgrounds, we have a wonderful field, large conservation area with
woodland, pond, orchard and outdoor classroom. Inside, the environment is filled with displays of
children’s work and the quiet buzz of learning. If appointed, you would be joining a fantastic team of
teachers and support staff who are dedicated to ensuring that all of our children achieve and that, as
practitioners, we are the best we can be.
Please look at our website where you will be able to get a flavour of what it is like at St Peter’s.
We warmly welcome, and encourage, visits to the school. If you would like to arrange a visit, please
contact our welcome desk on 01275 843142 to make an appointment.
We hope that you will feel encouraged to submit an application to us and may we thank you in advance for
the thought and effort that this will inevitably entail.
