We are looking to recruit outstanding, enthusiastic, and committed teachers to join our pool of supply teachers to provide long and short-term cover across our three primary schools located at Chulmleigh, Lapford and East Worlington.

Successful candidates will create a positive and creative learning environment. The role offers flexibility, but we are seeking reliable and well organised candidates.

You should be able to demonstrate an understanding and engagement in appropriate assessment processes and inclusive practices; and share a commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

We would welcome applications from candidates with good knowledge and previous experience of teaching at EYFS, Key Stage 1 or 2. All candidates should share our commitment to developing each child’s individual strengths to ensure every child succeeds.
