Fixed Term for 1 term to cover a period of Maternity Leave.


Would you like the opportunity to work in an innovative and friendly school, where well-being is at the heart of what we do, and colleagues, children and families work together in a caring community?

We are looking for a teacher who is:

At St Peter’s we focus on the characteristics of effective learning and the children’s eagerness to be independent in their own learning. Children’s days are a carefully planned blend of teacher-led sessions, small-group work, independent practice tasks and time for children to demonstrate and deepen their learning by choosing how to access a range of opportunities, both inside and outside.


You can find more about our approach on our website.
