Cornwall Learning Education Trust (CELT) is delighted to announce that Newquay Primary Academy (our brand-new academy) is admitting new Reception pupils only from September 2021 and is offering 30 places to the Newquay community.  As a result, we are looking to appoint an inspirational and highly motivated Early Years Foundation Stage Teacher who is passionate about children’s learning and has high expectations of all.

  • Implement a values-based education that echoes our belief in the importance of doing the right thing, working hard together and being resilient in everything we do.
  • Design and implement an Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum that develops lively, enquiring minds, fostering in every pupil the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves enthusiastically to tasks and physical skills.
  • Assist in the appointment of new staff to create a culture of very high aspiration and enable every pupil to make outstanding progress regardless of their starting point.
  • Build links with our new families so that we have a supportive parent community that works together to make Newquay the best it can be.
  • Create a culture where all staff are willing to participate in wider academy life and be able to promote and uphold the ethos of our school.
