Start date:      3rd February 2020

We are looking to appoint a teacher on a 6 month fixed term contract to cover a maternity leave.

It would be a great opportunity to be part of a school with:

  • a welcoming staff team who celebrate their inclusive practice;
  • a supportive and calm environment where pupils are ready to learn;
  • a culture where your wellbeing is an important feature of our management;
  • pupils who enjoy and benefit from a broad and creative curriculum;
  • potential career progression within our local family of schools within the Folio Trust.

We are looking for someone to work in KS2 who is:

  • passionate about teaching;
  • inspirational;

St Peter’s is a two form entry primary school located in a residential area in South Croydon with strong local community ties.  We can offer a well-designed, bright modern learning environment with superb outside facilities and good transport links nearby.

From the 1st April 2017 we became part of the Folio Education Trust – a local MAT.  Having achieved ‘good’ in our last Ofsted inspection in January 2013, our current emphasis is on preparing our pupils to be ‘secondary-ready’ especially in core subjects, but not losing the creativity that is a valued feature of our curriculum. Ofsted inspectors remarked that, ‘Pupils join in activities enthusiastically. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good because teachers make sure they encourage pupils’ personal skills.”
