Here is your opportunity to join a school with:

a welcoming staff team who celebrate their inclusive practice;

• a supportive and calm environment where pupils are ready to learn;

• pupils who enjoy and benefit from a broad and creative curriculum;

St Peter’s is a two form entry primary school located in a residential area of South Croydon with strong local community ties.  We can offer a well-designed, bright modern learning environment with superb outside facilities and good transport links nearby.

From the 1st April 2017 we became part of the Folio Education Trust – a local Multi Academy Trust.  Having achieved ‘good’ in our last Ofsted inspection in January 2013, our current emphasis is on preparing our pupils to be ‘secondary-ready’ especially in core subjects, but not losing the creativity that is a valued feature of our curriculum. Ofsted inspectors remarked that, ‘Pupils join in activities enthusiastically. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good because teachers make sure they encourage pupils’ personal skills.”

Salary will be dependent on experience and we welcome applications from both experienced teachers and NQTs.

If you are interested in applying, do come and visit us to really get a feel for how we work and what a lovely school we are!  Please contact the school office and one of the Leadership Team will be happy to talk to you about this vacancy and find a time for you to visit.
