We are a very successful school and are experiencing sustained roll growth in our awesome school. We are currently having 6 more teaching classrooms completed for our primary syndicate, a new science lab, new court surfacing and admin block improvements. It is exciting times here in Murchison!

Our primary syndicate currently consists of 9 teaching staff and 5 learning support staff. This syndicate is divided into upper and lower junior syndicates (Y0–4 and Y5–8) with a syndicate leader for each to add support to all staff. These syndicates are also supported by the deputy principal, the senior leadership team and various pastoral staff to ensure quality teaching and learning.

We are a very supportive and successful school in supporting PRT teachers and also integrating experienced staff to follow their passions and strengths. Class sizes are small, we are very well-resourced and our ERO reports are extremely positive.

This position may also allow for a teacher who is currently a trained Reading Recovery teacher or someone who wishes to upskill. At present we have one hour per day Reading Recovery allocated to this position. However, if the candidate does not wish to run the Reading Recovery programme, we are happy to make the position full-time in the new entrant classroom if the candidate would prefer.

We are a growth mindset school. We run a fully restorative school and have a wonderful, supportive community that fully engages with all that we offer. We are very successful academically but value the whole individual holistically and tailor programmes and support accordingly.

Please see our school Facebook page or our school website for more details on our area and community.

Housing is cheap and subsidised school housing is available.
