Why choose us?

The Staff Room is the region's only specialist Primary supply teaching agency, covering Northamptonshire and South Leicestershire.

First for primary teaching jobs in Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes


At the Staff Room we continually strive to ensure our client schools are provided with the best teaching staff available. This is achieved through our rigorous selection and registration process, based on DfE Safer Recruitment in Education guidelines. We don’t just take on any teacher or teaching assistant, we select only those candidates who have the right attitude and skills, alongside a genuine passion for education, so you get the quality candidates you need.

Our commitment to quality extends to the way we check and support our staff. All our Teachers and Classroom Support staff undergo a stringent vetting process to ensure they are suitable for placement. Checks are completed prior to the first placement of a candidate and are repeated during service as and when required.  The following checks apply to all education sector personnel before they are placed into a booking:

  • Qualifications
  • TRA (Teaching Regualtion Agency) every 6 months
  • Previous employment history from date of leaving school, with all gaps in employment history explored
