About the role

In our last Ofsted inspection, St. Luke’s received an ‘Outstanding’ judgement in all areas. Particularly singled out for praise were the behaviour and learning attitudes of the children and the quality of the teaching. We strongly believe that St. Luke’s is an excellent environment for all teachers to feel excited by their work and to continue to learn, whatever their level of experience.

At the heart of St. Luke’s is a strong values system which promotes diversity and inclusion in its actions and not just in its words. It is a creative and innovative school which aims to give each member of its community a voice in its development and growth. Through in-house research and professional development through coaching, it seeks to empower staff and children to shape the curriculum, the teaching and learning approaches and the environment. We continually aim to see the school experience through the eyes of the children and to challenge ‘received wisdom’ in relation to education. We aim to stay true to what we believe in whatever the pressures from outside. We very much welcome new members of staff who will add to the richness of ideas and dialogue around teaching and learning.

We offer a career development structure which builds on your strengths and passions and gives you the freedom to enquire and take risks. We are looking for teachers who are:

Committed to quality inclusion

Able to let children lead their learning

Continually reflecting on their practice

Keen to share their ideas and learn from others

Looking to explore teaching and learning approaches

If you are interested in applying for one of these positions but would like more information, please ring the school and ask to talk to the Headteacher, Jonathan Cooper. NQT applications are most welcome.
