Class Teacher (KS2) – East Whitby Primary Academy

September 2021

MPS 1 – MPS 6

Temporary to cover maternity

Early Career Teachers (NQTs) welcomed

Staff are fiercely loyal, proud and passionate advocates for their community. One parent said, ‘There is a real community spirit at East Whitby which one doesn’t always see in other schools’ Ofsted 2019


‘The school’s quite remarkable, extensive knowledge of high-quality children’s literature, including picture books, has completely inspired staff to use books as a stimulus across the whole curriculum wherever possible’ Ofsted 2019

Collaborate, Achieve, Nurture...We CAN do it!


With our love for learning, a staff body that are truly role models for our teaching and support profession- coupled with high expectations, we believe we have something special – all we need is you!

Here at East Whitby Primary Academy we share a special and unique learning community with friendly and welcoming children, staff and governors, and we are proud to serve the wider community of Whitby and surrounding villages.

Due to the quality of our CPD, colleagues that support each other and a sense of fun and enjoyment we have seen our staff stay and develop – and as such our school has very low staff turnover and high staff retention.

Our learning environment, with spacious accommodation enables us to offer a tailored curriculum to our children and we are excited to share and further develop our excellent provision for our staff and children.

We have highly supportive staff, governors, families and community. We are a member of The Enquire Learning Trust, a group of academies with a brilliant track record of providing incredible CPD opportunities and developing staff to be the best teachers and leaders that they can be. Within Whitby we work closely with our sister primary Stakesby Primary Academy.
