Teacher (MPS)

Woodlands Governing Body wish to appoint an exceptional KS1 teacher, to join our highly-skilled and dedicated team from 1 September 2020. The role will initially be on a temporary 12-month contract, with a view to extending or making permanent.


The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic classroom practitioner and a dynamic individual with the drive and determination to inspire children, families and colleagues.  They will be passionate about teaching and highly motivated to ensure the very best possible outcomes for the children in their care.  They will thrive and enjoy working within a team, sharing ideas, planning and have a wish to develop themselves.  We welcome applications from newly qualified teachers for this role.

The teaching commitment will be in Y1 and will require energy, creativity, patience and a nurturing attitude. The candidate will be teaching children who are transitioning from EYFS, potentially after a long period out of school, hence an understanding of quality transition and EYFS knowledge would be beneficial.

Woodlands Primary School is a 2.5 form entry setting, with keen and lovely children, supportive parents, strong Governance and a positive staff culture.

We would, in normal circumstances, invite you to visit our school, where you could experience our values and ethos during the working school day. For obvious reasons, we are unable to offer visits at this time but would recommend that if you have any questions about the position, please email headteacher Dr Victoria Carr at:  head@woodlands.cheshire.sch.uk.

Please take a look at our website: www.woodlands.cheshire.sch.uk and our Twitter feeds, which will give you a feel for life at our school.

Please include a Letter of Application alongside your completed application form. This can be emailed directly to admin@woodlands.cheshire.sch.uk 

Interviews will take place w/c Monday 22 June 2020


As it won’t be possible to observe teachers in their own setting or invite them to teach a lesson at Woodlands, each candidate may be required to complete a task, further information will follow after shortlisting. The interviews may take place virtually, more details will be provided nearer the time.

Woodlands Primary School places the highest priority on the safeguarding of children and all applicants will follow a stringent vetting and induction process.
