Would you like to work in a school which has recently achieved a "Good" judgement in every category?

The post is temporary in the first instance whilst we establish demand for the nursery.

We expect a great deal from our teachers, so can you:

- Offer a personalised curriculum through applying our well-embedded, proven assessment systems?
- Promote and meet the high expectations we have of our children and ourselves?
- Teach to a consistently "good" standard, while aiming to be "outstanding"?
- Secure the greatest possible progress for every child, in line with school expectations?

We can offer you:

- The chance to work in a good, and rapidly improving school.
- Excellent professional support from a skilled team of teachers and teaching support staff.
- An attractive learning environment: our Victorian building is set within the West Cumbrian village of Moresby Parks.
- Wonderful children to work with.
- The chance to make a genuine difference to learners' lives - our results prove that we already are doing so!
