If so, you’ll love to work at The Limes Primary Academy.

At The Limes Primary Academy we are looking for an Early Years Practitioner to work with our Nursery classes in a learning support role. We are looking for someone who is up for a challenge and wants to get stuck in with all aspects of our academy life. This is not just another job. This is the chance to be part of something exciting and worthwhile.

We can offer you:

  • a firm commitment to you and your professional development
  • friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and governors 
  • a growing learning community
  • encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference
  • coaching and mentoring from the Early Years Phase Leader
  • fantastic trust-wide CPD opportunities
  • opportunities to further develop your career within our Multi Academy Trust, REAch2, the largest primary-only academy trust in the country
  • the unique opportunity to help develop and shape a brand new school, including an innovative approach to EYFS provision
  • a stunning school environment, with state of the art facilities
  • most importantly, AMAZING children just waiting to meet you.

The Headteacher is now looking to appoint the next wave of staff to join the team in having the unique opportunity to build and grow the school from its infancy. There is no doubt about it, setting up the academy from scratch takes vision, dedication and hard work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding, seeing the academy take shape over the next few years and being part of that vision and growth from the start. 

An informal discussion with the headteacher is essential - please contact Kate Cracknell at: head@thelimesacademy.org or telephone (01502) 449200. We hope you will take the time to find out more about our new academy and experience our warm welcome.
