Located in the heart of Portsmouth, The Flying Bull Academy is a two-form entry primary school with a Nursery and an alternative provision setting for children with SEMH needs. The Academy is proud of its caring ethos; encouraging and supporting children and colleagues to achieve their full potential, in an inclusive environment where safeguarding of children is prioritised.  It is a positive, vibrant school, with a curriculum that inspires and enables our children to build upon prior knowledge and experiences in order to deepen their knowledge both academically and socially.

We can offer a hardworking, fun and proactive team with a range of skills across the curriculum, who are willing to offer support and expertise to develop your own practice. Being a reflective school, we continually strive to innovate and improve practice and a commitment to quality professional development.

We are looking for a new colleague to join us; a great teacher, confident classroom practitioner, an enthusiastic team player with high expectations of children’s achievement and behaviour. You will be committed to improving standards and ensuring all learners achieve their very best and have the skills to create a stimulating and purposeful learning environment.  You will have a positive attitude, excellent interpersonal skills and commitment to working in partnership with parents/carers, our Governors, and the local community to secure the best possible learning and teaching for all.  

Initially, this position is non-classed based. Your main role will be supporting our recovery programme by working with groups and individual children throughout KS1 and KS2. You will also be expected to support PPA cover for teachers as well as covering for teacher absence. You will need to be flexible enough to take a whole class responsibility depending on the needs of the academy.

In return, you will be part of the University of Chichester Academy Trust, bringing you added benefits and opportunities, for example specialised professional development from practitioners through cutting edge research. You will find that each of our Academies has a unique identity, but a shared belief in creating a positive and enriching environment, where all staff feel valued.

Visits to the school are strongly encouraged and welcomed; please ring the school office to arrange an appointment (02392 694313).
