Parley First School is part of the Castleman Academy Trust – a Trust that prides itself on putting children first, always and puts its values of Respect, Independence, Creativity and Inclusion at the heart of everything we do.

Parley First School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We value the diversity of our workforce and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

It is the staff in our academies who make our schools vibrant places of learning – who do all they can to make sure our children become confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens. Our staff want to make a real difference to the lives of the children they work with and are learners themselves who relish professional development opportunities.

Working in a Castleman Academy Trust school, you will be working with other forward thinkers, who see possibilities and are optimistic. You will have the support of like-minded colleagues and together we will ensure everyone has a great work life balance. Being part of the Castleman Academy Trust means there are a whole host of opportunities for you to develop and flourish. Flexible working within the school week will be considered where appropriate.

Parley First School values the diversity of the workforce and welcomes applications from all sectors of the community.  We are also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and require all staff and volunteers to share and demonstrate this commitment.

The successful candidate will be required to demonstrate that they meet the essential elements of the person specification and will be subject to pre-employment checks including an Enhanced DBS Check, Child Barred List check, satisfactory references and a health check and, where applicable, a prohibition from teaching check will be completed for all applicants.

An online check will also be conducted on all shortlisted applicants.  This check will form part of a safeguarding check, and the search will purely be based on whether an individual is suitable to work with children.  As care must be taken to avoid unconscious bias and any risk of discrimination, a person who will not be on the appointment panel will conduct the search and will only share information if and when findings are relevant and of concern.

This role is UK based and your Right to Work will need to be established as part of the appointment process.
