We’re looking for a Y1 Teacher to join our team until August 2022!

As a Year 1 Class Teacher you will support the academy in implementing and delivering an appropriately broad, balanced, rich and varied curriculum for students, to improve the outcomes for all. You will effectively monitor pupil achievement, be responsible for general administrative class duties, and maintain good educational ethos.

At the top of your game, you’ll have successful experience of teaching at KS1, collaborate effectively with other adults and work constructively as part of a team.

What our team does really counts. And we offer a wide range of benefits and rewards to recognise the part you play in our success. Whether they benefit your finances, your well-being, or your family, in or outside work. From career progression and working and making a difference within your local community, to a whole range of financial discounts and benefits, working at Co-op Academies Trust isn’t just your standard job.

Our Values

We follow the Co-op’s ‘Ways of Being’ which are:

  • Succeed together – Co-operating is what makes us different; we’re better and stronger when we work together.
  • Be yourself, always – We bring our best self to the academy, so that we each contribute and respect others for doing the same. Of course, being yourself isn’t about excusing poor behaviours that contradict our other Ways of Being Co-op.
  • Do what matters most – What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Show you care – We care about our Trust, our colleagues, our students, their parents, our Co-op and communities, now and for the future.


So, no matter if you’re just beginning your teaching career or looking to further develop, if you believe in our values we would love to hear from you!
