We are seeking a driven and experienced Year 6 Class Teacher who is passionate about providing the very best education for our children.

Streethay Primary School is a growing school at the heart of a new community in Lichfield. The school has been purpose built for our children as part of a large residential development which opened September 2019. We are a one form entry school with big ambitions; aiming to provide the best education locally and be known for our innovative approach.


We are part of a family of schools within Shaw Education Trust, in which primary, secondary and special schools, as well as an FE setting, work alongside one another to support the most positive outcomes for all pupils across the trust.


All candidates are required to provide a supporting statement on the formal application forms which states clearly your reasons for applying, skills and experience for this position.


Shaw Education Trust are a thriving mix of diverse and growing schools including Primary, Secondary and Special Schools all working together to improve the lives of young people in our communities. We are sponsored by Shaw Trust a charity organisation that focuses on transforming lives. We’re a growing group of dynamically awesome academies providing education to children of all ages and abilities. Staff across our team of schools are dedicated to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to be successful, whatever their starting point in life.


We believe that everyone has the potential to be extraordinary!  To this end, our growing number of primary schools within the trust tirelessly pursue excellence through research-based collaboration and innovation.  Our developing, Trust-wide, 3D Primary curriculum and pioneering Digital Strategy is designed to create inspirational, energetic and immersive learning experiences.  These enable every child to flourish within a caring, stimulating and purposeful atmosphere; fully prepared for their next stage of life and learning.


We know that at primary school, the quality of teaching affects both children’s social behaviour and intellectual development. This age and stage of learning has a more powerful impact on children’s academic progress than any other educational sector.  Home too has a vital part to play! - Recognised through extensive research, it is the importance of early experiences and the powerful combination of home, pre-school and primary school partnerships that set the foundations enabling our amazing children and pupils to succeed.


Our schools span from Birmingham to Bury, meaning that we can support students from all walks of life, no matter their background or socioeconomic status. In doing this, we are able to help ensure all children are able to access a high standard of education, with all being treated equally.


Unlike other MATs, we don’t enforce a curriculum for all our schools to follow. Instead, we support each individual school to offer a programme that enables our students to deepen their knowledge, develop their skills, sparks their imagination and fires their curiosity.
