The City of London Primary Academy Islington has an exciting opportunity for an exceptional and inspirational teacher to join our KS1 team. During the summer term, you will work across the parallel Y1 classes as an additional member of the team, provide some PPA cover and deliver bespoke Y1 interventions. A proven track record of delivering high quality RWI would be highly desirable.

We welcome applications from teachers who are committed to personal excellence. You will join a highly supportive and motivated team, committed to creative and stimulating approaches to teaching and learning.

For the right candidate, there may be future career development opportunities to lead and motivate children and colleagues in the pursuit of excellence across a range of specialist areas as our school expands.
