‘Pupils behave well. They are polite and supportive of one another. They want to learn and succeed.’ – Ofsted 2017

Let’s be honest, in June 2017 we lost our ‘good’ grading and was graded ‘requires improvement’ by Ofsted.  We know where we stand and with our Exec Head in place, have high aspirations and a rigorous plan to turn the school around.  

Come and join us and make a real difference to our children!

We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic teacher who is committed to the development of our children and our school.  You will be creative and energetic in your teaching and have the confidence to 'have a go' at anything new to improve the learning in your class.  This is the perfect role for candidates who want to work for a primary school that supports teachers to have a work life balance and to teach in their own way.

We can offer you: 

  • A school where we collaborate share and support each other to make sure all children achieve their very best. 
  • A school with exciting and attractive learning environments.
  • Well supported teachers who are committed to driving high standards.
  • Significant opportunities to further your professional development.
  • Superbly behaved children who have a strong desire to work hard and learn.

Through tailored professional learning opportunities we will look to develop you throughout your teaching career. We work closely with other schools within the AET network with lots of opportunities to shadow and observe best practice.

Leadership at our school is forward thinking - and the well-being and work-life balance of our teachers is very important. We give autonomy to teachers and welcome fresh ideas. We want you to give us your best and our non-negotiables are outstanding attainment and progress for every child, coupled with kindness and warm-heartedness.

Ashingdon Primary Academy is part of Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), a multi-Academy sponsor which aims to provide the opportunity for all young learners to fulfil their real potential.  Our school has approximately 200 children from the villages of Ashingdon and South Fambridge as well as from parts of Canewdon, Hockley, Rochford and Hullbridge.  We are lucky enough to be set on a large, attractive site in open, green-belt countryside.

As  the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them.  In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.  You will also be entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, vehicle affinity scheme and childcare vouchers.

This position is required as soon as possible.

Closing date: Sunday 18 March 2018.
