Are you a Primary teacher looking for fast progression? Are you an ambitious NQT with an 'Outstanding' placement grade? Do you enjoy working in teams?


The Governors of Okehampton Primary School, as part of the newly formed Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust, are looking to recruit permanent and temporary full time teachers for September 2018. The temporary posts are to provide cover for maternity leave.


We are looking for enthusiastic and dynamic teachers who are committed to each child reaching their full potential through a challenging and exciting curriculum that will inspire wonder, develop confidence and celebrate our local community.

You must be able to evidence teaching at a consistently good or outstanding level.


We can offer you challenge and support as well as the opportunity to work with a strong staff team, exceptional parents and governors and children who will inspire you to do your best.


As a three form entry school we have built a strong CPD team and will provide you with the opportunities and support to develop your creativity and flair. The school is looking for teachers in Key Stage 1 or 2 who are passionate about learning and will go the extra mile to make a difference for our children.


We welcome informal visits and would love the opportunity to show you around our wonderful school.  The Head of School will be available to show all interested candidates on the following dates: 12/3/18, 14/3/18, 15/3/18, 20/3/18 and 21/3/18.  Please contact the school office to arrange a visit.


For an application form and further details please see the attached documents above or email:   In your application, you should convince us that Okehampton is where you want to be. In doing so, it would be helpful if you could address the following in your letter of application:


  • What makes an effective teacher and a successful learner (with an example or two showing how you have demonstrated this in your practice).
  • Your knowledge of and views on the curriculum of the relevant Key Stage (KS1 or KS2) and how this is most effectively delivered.
  •  Information about your strengths and interests, both in and out of school: what you could offer the children and staff at Okehampton.

Please return your completed application forms to Okehampton Primary School by noon on the closing date.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

An enhanced DBS disclosure is required for these posts.
