Main Scale Teacher Vacancies

Job 1: Full-time Permanent

Job 2: Full-time Temporary - due to staffing


Sawley Junior School is a great place for children to aspire, achieve and thrive. Our children are enthusiastic, keen to learn and well behaved. They love engaging in hands-on, creative learning opportunities and respect teachers who are fair, have clear and consistent boundaries, are caring and make their learning fun. We are a hard working team looking for teachers who are as committed as we are to ensuring that all children receive the quality education they deserve - someone who has the skills and desire to develop and nurture every child in their care.

Sawley Junior School is one of the four primary schools that make up Willows Academy Trust. The four schools combined to become a Trust in November 2014 presenting exciting opportunities to improve local education as we draw upon our collective experiences, talents and resources.

Teachers within our school benefit from:

  • Enthusiastic, cheerful and reflective learners – children and staff!
  • Excellent CPD, from NQT to leadership level – CPD is provided both from within the wider trust and via external providers: leadership roles are advertised internally initially
  • Supportive, caring colleagues and a positive, team-focused atmosphere
  • Strong, forward-thinking and compassionate leadership


If you are a dedicated and reflective practitioner who strives to ensure that good quality teaching and learning takes place in the classroom then we look forward to welcoming your application.


Visits to see us in action are warmly welcomed. Please telephone the school to arrange an appointment. Please note, we do not arrange visit appointments via email.


The posts are available from September 2019.
