Primary Schools in England can broadly be divided into three sections: Nursery, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, and Tradewind has many job vacancies available for each of these specialisms.


Teachers of Key Stage 1 are responsible for the education of children aged between 5 and 7 years of age, and these early years of learning are a crucial time for their development.


The teaching of Key Stage 1 would suit those who enjoy working with young children and communicate well with them, and who can display the patience and understanding needed to instill in them a respect for learning from an early age. 


The main responsibilities of Key Stage 1 Teachers generally include: 


  • Teaching all areas of the curriculum for primary schools 
  • Maintaining discipline during classes and at other times in the school day
  • Planning, preparing and delivering lessons appropriate for Key Stage 1 pupils 
  • Organising the classroom to encourage a good learning environment
  • Assessing and marking pupils’ work, and preparing them for Key Stage 1 exams
  • Working with other faculty members
  • Giving feedback to parents and carers on the progress of pupils

Necessary qualities for a Key Stage 1 Teacher:


  • Positive nature and encouragement
  • Self-motivation and organisation
  • Patience 
  • Flexibility
  • Good communication skills

To see what makes a great teacher of Key Stage 1, read our recommendations.


Necessary qualifications needed:


Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) is vital if you want to teach Key Stage 1. The three main ways of acquiring QTS are:


  • Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
  • Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP)
  • School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT)
