    West View Primary School is part of Ad Astra Academy Trust and is embarking on an exciting chapter in the development of the school.


    The school is looking to recruit enthusiastic and highly motivated teachers for September 2018. The successful applicants will work alongside a strong and committed team and will benefit from the wider professional opportunities available working for Ad Astra Academy Trust.


    Applicants will be expected to demonstrate that they are ready to take on a challenging post within this forward thinking school. The successful applicants will have an opportunity to work alongside highly committed staff and work with our children to instil our core values: passion, honesty, respect, determination, self belief and team work. Applicants are asked to demonstrate their skills and experience that they will bring to the posts.


    The successful candidates will:

    • Join a school with a highly supportive, warm, friendly and respectful ethos, and the drive and ambition to ensure that all members of staff, and children, achieve their full potential.
    • Have the privilege of engaging with hard-working, highly motivated children.
    • Be part of a school environment which places high value to the wider, enriched Curriculum


    West View Primary School has recently been judged as ‘good’ by Ofsted in September 2017 and as such the successful candidates will be provided with induction and professional development of the highest quality.


    West View Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. As such the successful candidates will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS check.
