About the role

An opportunity has arisen for you to join our friendly, dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff and children at St. Michael's as a full time (although part time applicants would still be considered) class teacher beginning 31 October 2022. 

We follow a growth mindset approach to developing each child and offer an incredibly diverse and rich curriculum in which each child can excel. Our children are incredibly happy at school and hugely enjoy learning.

We take a holistic approach to the education of our children and during their time with us they make excellent academic progress. But the outcomes we achieve are much more far reaching than this; we also place great emphasis on developing the whole child through focusing on good manners, honesty, showing respect, cooperation and collaboration, taking responsibility for themselves and others, doing the right thing, being kind and generally being good people and good citizens. St.Michaels is committed to providing an all-round excellent primary education which is rooted in such fundamental British values as: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. This is all done in keeping with the school's distinctive Christian character. It is wonderful to see our children flourishing and thriving during their time at school.

We have a highly skilled and cohesive staff team who always put our children first and strive for excellence in everything they do. We have a positive, ‘growth mindset’ attitude and adopt a solution-focused approach to overcome obstacles and enable all children and adults to achieve their full potential. We encourage children to be confident, independent learners, who understand that achieving success requires effort, practice and perseverance and that making mistakes is an essential part of the learning process.

As a school we are forward thinking and are always looking for ways to improve through training, learning from best practice, partnership working and constantly reflecting on what we do as we improve child outcomes.

Our focus is on meeting the individual needs of every child to ensure they develop the skills they need to reach their full potential and be ready for secondary school. We encourage parents / carers to be involved in their children’s learning as much as possible, and to work in partnership with us for the benefit of their children.

Visitors often comment on the positive atmosphere in the school and particularly how well-behaved, happy, and hard-working our children are. Being a church school, means any decision made comes from a place of love for the whole child. We are a school for families with a Christian faith, different faiths and also those with no faith who encourage our children to be outward looking but reflective, knowledgeable and curious.
