Class Teacher

We believe that everything starts with our children and we are looking for teachers who believe the same

Monks Orchard Primary and Nursery School is a large, diverse, vibrant and friendly school based in Croydon Surrey. We are looking to recruit an inspirational and child centred class teacher from September 2017.

Do you remember why you chose to be a teacher?

Working with our children is extremely rewarding as they are well behaved and eager to learn. At Monks Orchard Primary and Nursery School we believe that everything starts with our children and we are looking for teachers who believe the same. We know our children as individuals, as young people with dreams and ambitions, skills and difficulties, loves and hates - not just as statistics. No generic, 'one size fits all,' scheme or programme can meet the needs of all of our children, so we plan and deliver our own exciting, creative activities that motivate, challenge and drive them to achieve excellence.

Feel supported in your career

We are incredibly proud of our team; all of our teaching and non-teaching team staff have demonstrated an unstinted commitment to the school's goals and are a key part of our success. All of our staff work together to help create a happy school where the working atmosphere is relaxed and informal. Our staff feel empowered to trust their professional judgement and that they can develop our children using their own creativity, style and flair.

Upon joining us you will be welcomed and supported by a dedicated and enthusiastic team who go out of their way to help each other.

We prioritise the development of our staff and value their wellbeing and we offer a varied CPD programme that includes both external and internal training sessions. Everyone has a role to play in the development of our curriculum and in the broader life of the school.
