Gooderstone Church of England Primary Academy is a small school set in rural Norfolk. Over the last two years we have grown in numbers in our lower year groups meaning that we have had to restructure our classes for the upcoming academic year. Due to our lower numbers in Keystage 2, they will mostly be taught altogether in our Kestrels class. Due to this, we want to allow time in the week for both lower and upper keystage 2 to be taught separately. We are looking for a candidate to work closely with our wonderful Miss Stanley to provide fantastic learning experiences for our year 3 & 4 pupils three mornings a week.

Our mission is to deliver the best education for all the children in our care within a distinctive Christian environment. We are passionate about our curriculum and work hard to inspire our children to develop a love of learning through creative, fun and hands-on experiences. So if the creative approach is your passion then you will fit right in.

We have been part of the Churchside Federation with Mundford CE Primary Academy since 2015 within The Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT).  This gives our staff the benefits of having lots of colleagues to work with in planning, training and moderating but also the bonus of working within a small school with much to celebrate!

The successful candidate will:

  • Be an excellent teacher who is passionate about teaching
  • Inspire and excite children in their learning
  • Consistently set high expectations for pupils
  • Have excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour
  • Be willing to contribute to the common goals of the Federation
  • Have a firm commitment to our Christian ethos, vision and values

The school offers:

  • Enthusiastic children who are proud of their village school
  • An excellent environment in which to develop professionally
  • A creative, friendly and supportive staff team
  • Supportive governors and parents

And much, much more

This post would not be suitable for an ECT.
