Do you have the energy, enthusiasm and creativity to help shape our KS2 nurture provision? 

Are you passionate about inclusion and committed to meeting the needs of all children?

WELLSPRING Academy Trust: 

At Wellspring Academy Trust we believe that every school is unique, because it has a unique history, it serves a unique community context and is full of unique individuals.  We value and celebrate the unique identities of our Academies.  We encourage them to innovate, create and develop their uniqueness because we want others to learn from them.  Excellence is about diversity, not conformity.  We do not believe that one size fits all.

At Joseph Norton we believe that every child deserves the best possible education to enable them to make good progress and achieve their full potential. We are a child-centred and values-driven. As a team, we want every child to leave us having developed a love of learning and the skills and self-confidence needed to help them succeed in post-school life.

You will inspire pupils through imaginative, topic based activities that promote a love of learning and make inventive use of our extensive school grounds.

We can offer amazing children; a fun, supportive, hardworking and dedicated team; effective and consistent school systems with supportive leadership; personalised professional development that enables you to reach your career aspirations; committed and challenging governors.
