Full time and permanent. Salary: MPS.

Come and Join Our Outstanding School

St Dominic Savio is a great place to teach at! We are an “outstanding school” (Ofsted, February 2020) and are in the top 1% of all schools nationally for pupil outcomes. 

“Staff are unanimously proud to work at the school and feel
that leaders ‘genuinely care’ about their well-being.”

We believe in academic rigour and traditional values and our children behave impeccably. Our knowledge-rich curriculum was rated as “top notch” by Ofsted. Our school is very lucky to have excellent facilities and spacious grounds.

We are a family-centred school and value the importance of flexible working patterns for staff. We are looking for a class teacher who has high expectations of learning, achievement and behaviour and enjoys working well as a team. Most paperwork ‘requirements’ that are asked of teachers – we don’t do at our school. We want our teachers to focus on the job they love: teaching!

We are looking for:

  • A teacher (newly-qualified or experienced) who has high expectations for every child
  • A teacher interested in educational research and uses this to improve their teaching
  • Someone who can work both independently and as a team

We can offer you: 

  • A positive, warm and welcoming work environment 
  • A research informed school that encourages collaboration between staff 
  • Continuous professional development to help you achieve your professional goals 
  • A school that stops unnecessary workload and gives additional release time when needed 
  • Teaching without disruption – our children love learning 
  • Family-friendly working practices which support staff and their families 
  • An experienced and fun staff team 
  • Excellent support and development from a visible leadership team who look after you
