We are a school in special measures. There, we’ve said it.

If this has put you off, then we wish you well in your search.

If not, read on.


I am the new Headteacher of Sprites Primary Academy and am looking for teachers to be part of our next chapter. We are not after superlatives – the ‘best’ teacher, the most experienced, the strictest practitioner – but rather those with a moral purpose that aligns with ours. We are here to make a difference, break down barriers and raise aspirations. Yes, we are taking a school out of special measures, but we are also transforming a community and creating an enduring legacy.


We are looking for the right people in a variety of roles. We have teaching positions in different phases and for the right candidate, there may be additional responsibilities, TLRs and leadership opportunities. Unfortunately, we are not able to appoint NQTs at this moment in time.


If this sounds like a project for you then let’s have a chat on the phone or come and visit our delightful school. I guarantee you will be excited and pleasantly surprised!


Please make arrangements by calling the school office on 01473 685040.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointment to this post will be subject to an enhanced DBS check and a check against the Children’s Barred List.


The school, and REAch2 Academy Trust, reserves the right to appoint earlier if an exceptional candidate applies for the post, so early applications are strongly encouraged.
