Welcome to Scargill Junior School

Thank you for showing an interest in working at Scargill Junior School. I hope that this website will give you an insight into life at our school and the opportunities on offer.

We are a happy, friendly school where our children work hard to achieve the best in their learning and to become well-rounded, confident individuals ready and prepared to tackle successfully the challenges of the wider world.

We are looking for enthusiastic, creative and highly motivated teachers to join our dedicated team in order to develop every child’s potential.

We believe in those qualities of:

  • Confidence
  • Independence
  • Resilience
  • Determination

We give our children opportunities to shine in other ways than just academic subjects, for example, every year group does an annual theatre production; our creative curriculum is based on the arts; we participate in a range of sporting events; children organise fund-raising events such as Macmillan Coffee morning and our Summer Fair.

We believe in investing in our staff. Many leave after a period of time to progress up the career ladder e.g. Phase leaders, year group leaders, Assistant Headteachers. This leaves us with the opportunity to nurture and grow a new group of future leaders.

What we can offer you:

  • Staff development and well-being is a high priority
  • Well-behaved, polite children who are keen to learn
  • Friendly, dedicated and supportive staff, parents and governors
  • Opportunities for you to develop your creative talents and leadership skills
  • Spacious and well-resourced learning environment
  • A modern well-maintained building in beautiful grounds

Our school is a reflection of the dedication of our staff, and the efforts of our pupils. Pupils are proud to be a part of the school and speak highly of the way their teachers help them to succeed. We welcome and encourage you to come and visit us and see first hand the creative and supportive environment we offer.
