Littleport Community Primary School is a vibrant and happy place to learn (OFSTED, Sept 2018)


We want the best for our children – are you the person to give them that?
We are recruiting two KS1 Class Teachers for Maternity Cover from September 2019

A taste of life here: http://www.littleport.cambs.sch.uk/school-prospectus-summer-2018/

Are you a consistently good or outstanding teacher, living locally or looking to relocate to East Anglia or gain new teaching experiences?
Do you want to join a forward-thinking school with innovative approaches to learning at its heart, recently designated as the national ‘Research School’ for East Cambs and Fenland?
We are looking for someone who:
• Is an excellent practitioner and team player
• Is inspirational, adaptable and consistent in their approach to working with children
• Has high expectations and a commitment to raising standards
• Has experience of planning, assessing and teaching personalised lessons to mixed ability classes
• Has a commitment to research-informed practice and the benefits of outdoor learning

The position is open to teachers of all experience, including NQTs.

Our school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in September 2018. We have a proven track record of developing our staff – many of our Senior Leadership Team came to us as NQTs and have progressed whilst here.

We will be able to offer you:
- Motivated children whose behaviour for learning is rated as a real strength
- A welcoming learning environment in a purpose-built school with large grounds including a nature area, wood and allotment.
- A highly supportive Governing Body
- Skilled and professional staff who have the best interests of children at heart
- Opportunities for continuing professional development driven by the work of the Research School

We are a two form entry Primary School of 450 pupils. We are on an exciting journey of school improvement, where we continue to strive for excellence and where we want the entire school community to ‘spread their wings and fly’.

Visits to the school are always strongly encouraged. If our film makes you curious, then please come and see us!
