Class Teacher

Class Teacher-Fixed Term- Main pay scale- KS1 or 2

This is an exciting opportunity to teach in a small village primary school within a very supportive community. This small-scale approach gives our children a real opportunity to thrive, and has resulted in excellent outcomes for them for a number of years. We are seeking a committed teacher, with a passion for a child-centred curriculum, to continue this approach and develop our provision further.


Elveden C of E Primary Academy is a small, rural school on the outskirts of Thetford and Brandon. We are very welcoming and friendly, with excellent relationships with our parents and wider community. We currently have 98 pupils on roll and will be growing to 102 in September.


We are seeking to appoint a part-time (0.4/2 days), class teacher, from September 2023. There will also be the opportunity to lead curriculum subjects and this will depend on the successful candidates’ particular areas of expertise, as well as the needs of the school. Experience of teaching a mixed class is desirable, as is a good knowledge of the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds scheme. A keen interest in outdoor learning is also something we will find in the ideal candidate.


All staff at the school benefit from an employee assistance programme, as well as open opportunities to contribute to the school development, high-quality CPD and opportunities for career progression.


Please visit our website and Facebook page for more information and to get a real feel for our school. We also recommend arranging an informal visit to come and meet the children and our team. Please telephone the school office to make an appointment.


Elveden C of E Primary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its children and expects all staff to share this commitment. All appointments will be subject to full safeguarding checks as well as satisfactory references.


Closing date is 22nd May 2023

(We reserve the right to close the advert early should the right candidate apply prior to the closing date.)

Interviews to be held  25th May 2023
