EYFS/Year 1 Teacher

EYFS/Y1 Class Teacher-1 year maternity cover

This is an exciting opportunity to teach Reception/Year 1 in a small village primary school within a very supportive community. We value the education of our younger children and that means a full-time teaching assistant works alongside the teacher too. This small-scale approach gives our Reception/Year 1 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 Early Years curriculum, to continue this approach and develop our Early Years 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 94 pupils on roll and will be growing to 105 with an exciting expansion in progress.


We are seeking to appoint a full-time, EYFS class teacher, for a 1 year maternity cover from January 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 Key Stage 1 is also 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.
