Headteacher – Mrs L Hanger

Full time Key Stage 2 Teacher (Maternity Cover Post, September 2020)

At Northgate Community Primary School our Vision is for children to be proud of themselves and strive to be the best that they can; to feel understood and supported to achieve success; to be safe and happy; to learn the skills to give them confidence to face the future; to know how to behave well; to be treated equally and to feel important within their school, family and the wider community. We are looking to appoint an experienced, enthusiastic and highly motivated teacher to join our friendly, welcoming school.

In November 2019 we became a member of Waveney Valley Academies Trust.

This post is suitable for an NQT and we offer a fully compliant NQT induction process.

  • Have high expectations of behaviour, effort and attitude and the necessary strategies to promote these qualities

  • Enjoy working as part of a team 

We offer:

  • A friendly school with a supportive staff team and well behaved children who are ready to learn
