Whiston Worrygoose Junior and Infant School
Hall Close Avenue
We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and inspirational Year 1 or EYFS practitioner to join our team at Whiston Worrygoose Junior and Infant School from January 2019.

The job will initially be offered on a temporary basis until August 2019. However, we are confident this post may become a permanent position due to the high number of commitments the school now has to support others. We are also part of the White Woods Primary Academy Trust and are a National Teaching School and National Support School.
The successful candidate will be placed in Year 1. We welcome applications from both NQTs and experienced teachers.

- Has good planning and preparation skills
- Has a strong commitment to working in partnership with pupils, staff, governors, parents and the community
