 We are looking for an experienced and talented teacher who can deliver high quality learning experiences within EYFS and KS1 and who has a clear understanding of how young children learn successfully, the growth mind-set, and who can deliver and blend effectively child centred and led learning and adult guided.

 We can offer you a very experienced team of  two Foundation Stage Practitioners who will work alongside you, small teaching groups, friendly and polite children, a supportive staff team and Governing Body and  great continuing professional development. This post will initially be based at Buckland Brewer Primary School however you could be asked to work in either school so flexibility is essential as is an ability to contribute to the wider life of the school. 

 Both schools are situated in idyllic rural surroundings with a family orientated ethos and both strive to deliver excellent opportunities for all pupils.  We are members of the Atlantic Coast Cooperative Trust which gives great opportunity for collaboration, training for staff and enrichment opportunities for children.
