Tradewind has an abundance of vacancies available for teachers in Primary Schools in England including specific roles for teacher of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.


Primary School Teachers of Key Stage 2 focus on the development of pupils aged between 7 and 11 years of age, which represents an important period in their continued education.

  • Maintaining the classroom as a proper environment in which to learn. 
  • Grading pupils’ work, and preparing them for Key Stage 2 exams
  • Co-operating with other school staff members
  • Feeding back to parents and carers on pupils’ progress
