Class Teacher Any Year Group

Burwell Village College Primary SchoolCambridgeshire

Class Teacher Post (potential for any phase, including EYFS)

Burwell Village College Primary School is at an exciting time in its journey.  We have appointed a new Headteacher who has been in post since April 2020 and a new Governing Body in place since November 2020 and we are now putting in place plans to ensure that our children get the best possible opportunities to succeed.  

We are looking for teachers who are outstanding practitioners or have the potential to be.  We need staff who are inspiring and motivating for pupils, able to think about learning and deliver it in an interesting and engaging way.  We have a strong support package for teachers, including joint PPA time giving opportunities to share ideas, strong, knowledgeable senior leaders who have time out of the classroom to focus on developing teaching and learning and opportunities to create and refine our own curriculum. The appointment will be paid on Main Pay Scale.  There may be an opportunity to work in Reception for the right candidate.

The children here are well-behaved, hard-working and eager to learn.  The facilities are fantastic with space and equipment readily available.  Parents are keen to support the school and are positive about the improvements already being made.  

This is a brilliant opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of the over four hundred children.  If you really want to have a measurable impact on children’s life chances, Burwell could be the school for you.  

If you would like to know more about the school, please contact the school office and ask to speak to the Headteacher.  We can arrange Zoom, Teams, Google meet or FaceTime conversations, as well as traditional phone calls.  Whilst we would love to offer visits to the school, our current COVID risk assessment and restrictions mean this is not possible.

Closing Date for Applications: Monday 12th April 2021 @ 4.00 pm

Interview Dates: Thursday 15th April 2021
