Westonzoyland Primary School ‘Achieving, Learning and Growing Together’


As a part of our recovery strategy, we are looking to recruit one or two members of teaching staff to join our friendly and welcoming village school.


Post 1: The first post is for a Year 4 teacher on a 0.6 role, teaching 5 mornings per week.  (Estimated timings are 8:15 – 12:30 with a 30 minute unpaid break).

The post holder will teach a group of approximately 18 Year 4 children. 


Post 2: We are also looking to appoint a Year 1 teacher on a 0.4 role teaching 5 afternoons per week. This is to cover non-contact time for our SENDCo.  (Estimated timings are 1pm – 3:30pm).

The post holder will teach a group of approximately 20 Year 1 children.


We are very happy to combine the posts to make one full time role if we find the appropriate candidate.  Please state in your application which post(s) you are applying for.


As a small school with classes with mixed year groups, we are applying our recovery money into separating out into individual year groups for the morning sessions.  Hence, the small group sizes.


Both posts are on a fixed term contract for 1 year September 2021 to August 2022.


We are a holistic school that values breadth in our curriculum and has wellbeing and personal development at the heart of our curriculum.  We value learning in and out of the classroom in our beautiful grounds.


We are happy to consider candidates at any stage of their teaching career.


Westonzoyland Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.  The successful applicant(s) will be subject to an enhanced DBS check and pre-employment checks.


We can accommodate school tours after 3:30PM Monday to Friday.  Please contact the school office to book an appointment.


Closing date: 19th April 2021

Interview dates: 5th and 6th May 2021


Candidates will be asked to teach a small group of children in a COVID safe way in our school hall or, if they prefer, outside the building.  The rest of the interview will be held virtually.
