QEGSMAT are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Year 4 Class Teacher to cover maternity leave and join our hardworking and high achieving team at St. John’s Primary School, to start September 2024. 

The successful applicant will be hard working, enthusiastic and flexible with high standards. They will possess a 'can do' attitude and be willing to support the activities of the school. The ability to work with a range of people is essential and they must be able to act on their own initiative, dealing with any unexpected challenges as they arise. 

They will hold an approved, verified qualification along with a willingness to participate in further training and development opportunities offered by the school and QEGSMAT, to further develop knowledge and understanding of the role, are essential.  

The candidate will be expected to work hours within the school day that meet the needs of the school.  These will be agreed before a job offer is made.  

Our school is in the village of Wetley Rocks in between Leek, Cheadle and Stoke on Trent.  Our semi-rural location and single-form entry means we are a smaller school catering for approx. 190 3-11 years.  Our school was built in the late 1990’s and we have recently invested in our outdoor areas, developing our Forest School provision and more recently our playground equipment. 

St. John’s Primary is a proud member of QEGSMAT. The Trust’s values are for students to ‘Question, Explore; Give; and Succeed’. Our exceptional staff, strong leadership, motivated children, as well as excellent facilities, provide the successful formula for this. 

At QEGSMAT we believe and promote that exceptional workforce creates exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. We support every pupil to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient, and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society.

Why work for us? 

  • At QEGSMAT, we value the hard work and dedication of our team members, and as such we believe that progression should be a simple process. That’s why we are proud to offer an Automatic Pay Review program, rather than the traditional annual pay and performance review, as part of our comprehensive benefits package.
