We are seeking to appoint a full time permanent nursery teacher to work within the nursery of Moffat Academy Primary School.

Moffat Academy is a rural all through school in Dumfries and Galloway – the primary school has approximately 250 pupils, with 46 in the nursery.

Moffat Primary benefits from a new all-through building and is conveniently situated on the motorway network some 22 miles from Dumfries but within easy commuting distance from the central belt. A cluster management team oversees both Moffat Academy All through School and Beattock Primary School and this approach aims to provide a dynamic learning environment where all pupils are challenged and supported to reach their full potential both academically - but also in terms of wider achievement and participation.

A distinctive feature of the cluster is the emphasis given to ensuring high quality seamless transitions through the different sectors to ensure effective curriculum planning, assessment and progression from 3-18. The schools foster strong partnership working between staff in the different stages of the school, within our cluster and with parents and supportive community partners.

A significant relocation package of up to £5,000 is available to the successful candidate. Please see the attached removal expenses document for further information.
