Classroom Teacher(Key Stage 1 or 2)

English Martyrs promotes high achievement and strives to develop each child’s full potential.

We are an inclusive and welcoming school set in lovely wooded grounds on the western side of Reading. We currently have 459 children on roll, with two classes per year group as well as a nursery class.

OFSTED told us in July 2018 that we are a good school with “a passion and a determination to provide the best possible education for the children in your care.”

They also said that “pupils love their welcoming school and say that it is easy to make friends at English Martyrs. They say that they feel safe in school and know who to talk to if they have any worries.”

Would you like to become part of our nurturing and supportive school community?

We are looking for a teacher who is:

  • Supportive of a Catholic vision of education
  • A caring, inspirational, dedicated and effective classroom practitioner
  • Hardworking, enthusiastic, imaginative and able to work as part of a team
  • Committed to helping us give our children the best possible education
  • Able to laugh at life’s ups and downs.

In return, we can offer you:

  • A community with a strong Catholic ethos which welcomes everyone as equal
  • A school community who have kind, supportive relationships and genuinely care about each other
  • Happy, well-behaved and well-mannered children from a wide range of backgrounds and ethnicities
  • Supportive governors and parents who are enthusiastic about the school
  • Opportunities for continued professional development.

We welcome enquiries and would love to meet you for a chat and a tour of our school.
