Are you interested in a career in Primary Teaching?

St John's C of E Primary School serves its community by providing an education of the highest quality. At St John’s we pride ourselves on our knowledge of our children: the children come first in all that we do. We work hard to know every child, to know their strengths and interests, so that their learning is always challenging and interesting. We work closely with families to ensure that our families are empowered to support their children within and beyond school. The team at St John’s work hard to ensure our curriculum is inspiring for our children, responding to their needs both academically and personally, building individual, independent children as they leave our school.

We are keen to recruit student teachers who share the same commitment. If you share our vision for education, we want to hear from you. We will provide highest quality training, delivered by outstanding practitioners through a bespoke training package, to make the most of your knowledge and skills. After a year's successful training, you will achieve Qualified Teacher Status. As School Direct partner working with our SCITT provider, we are committed to helping you develop professionally, beyond your training and Newly Qualified Teacher year by means of an extensive programme of Continuing Professional Development opportunities.

Our accredited training provider is Bradford Birth to 19 School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT). Bradford Birth to 19 SCITT offers a different way of training to become a teacher. Learn by listening to and observing good and outstanding teachers. Training involves practising your teaching skills with groups of students. Supported effectively by a school mentor, you are treated as a member of the school staff, someone the school is often looking to potentially employ. This route ensures you are working in your class from day one of the course.

  • o a GCSE Grade C/4 in maths, science and English or equivalent.
