We require a teacher who can listen, question, be responsive and remember that every pupil and class is different.

Our teachers benefit from tailored support, targeted professional development opportunities and the chance to work in a friendly and collaborative learning community. Here’s what our staff say about working here: 

  • “I am very proud to work at Windmill CE Primary and feel privileged to work with such a hard-working, dedicated team.”  

Our school opened in April 2014 and has gone from strength to strength since that time. We recently had an OFSTED inspection which judged our school to be ‘GOOD’ with ‘OUTSTANDING personal development, behaviour and welfare. In November 2016 we were judged as ‘OUTSTANDING’ in a SIAMs inspection. We are highly ambitious for our children and school. We seek a committed professional to work with us as we become a truly outstanding place of learning.

  • The headteacher and governors have developed a strong sense of purpose among all staff and morale is high. They have been very successful in developing the quality of teaching to make sure that pupils’ learning and outcomes are good. Staff and parents are giving leaders their full support to make sure that pupils have a good education. 


  • Pupils’ attitudes to learning are strong and their behaviour, both in class and around the school, is exemplary. They are quick to act on the good advice given by their teachers in order to strengthen their work, and are highly supportive of each other’s learning.
