Orchard Park Community Primary School


We currently have three staff vacancies:  Deputy Headteacher Maternity 1 year cover (starting January 2019), Year 4 Class Teacher and 1:1 Level 2 Teaching Assistant to support children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.


Year 4 Class Teacher details are outlined below, however, for further details regarding the Deputy Headteacher and TA positions (ie full job packs), please email:  office@orchardpark.cambs.sch.uk. Further details of these posts will also be advertised on the EPM website imminently.  Thank you.


Our school, recently reaffirmed as 'good' by Ofsted (March 2017), is a unique and special place to work.  We are a small school on the edge of Cambridge, which is at the heart of a new and growing community.  We are extremely proud of what our school has achieved since it opened 10 years ago and we are excited by what the next decade may bring.


We pride ourselves on our positive and nurturing ethos, quality first teaching and high expectations in all we do.  Our recent Ofsted stated that we are a school where "there is a culture of ambition, where children are encouraged to dream big".
