The Governors of Birchwood Primary School are seeking an excellent class teacher to join the friendly team of our popular and successful ‘outstanding’ graded (OFSTED) school.


Birchwood Primary School is a very popular and thriving school. It is a wonderful place to teach in and an inspirational place to be a pupil in. We are very fortunate to have over 400 enthusiastic, energetic and wonderfully behaved children, who are always up for a challenge and delighted by all the positive changes we have made to the school. They are fiercely loyal to their school and highly supportive.


We are proud of our committed staff at all levels. They take great pride in their school and make a strong impact on outcomes for our pupils. The teachers, highly praised by OFSTED in 2014/15 for their teaching and commitment, are a professional and hardworking team who are excellently supported by our invaluable Teaching Assistants. Our Midday Supervisors, Site Management and Administration teams are very valued and share our determination to drive forward progress.


We are looking forward to welcoming new teachers to join our team in our journey as an ‘outstanding’ school. Support and professional development is second to none. Not only do our Newly Qualified Teachers experience an induction programme which is recognised as a ‘county model of best practice’, but all of our staff at every level benefit from high quality professional development opportunities. Many of our staff have also enjoyed the unique and unrivalled opportunity to work across our excellent academy primary schools and gain promoted posts within our academy.


Our school gets involved in everything. We enter all manner of competitions from poetry writing, to singing in national choirs, to local sports events, we sometimes even win them! Our dedicated staff contributes to the vast range of extra –curricular activities we offer children, who attend in large numbers.

- be an excellent classroom practitioner who ensures that all children whatever their ability make great progress

- be a dedicated professional with the ability to inspire children and their colleagues
