We are proud to serve our diverse, vibrant community and celebrating this diversity is central to the school’s vision. We actively encourage applications from underrepresented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
Applications from those with experience of working, whether as a teacher or in another role, with EAL pupils and/or families are particularly encouraged.
We have two vacancies for class teachers with expected start dates of September 2021. We are looking to appoint outstanding and enthusiastic classroom practitioners to motivate and inspire our children in their learning.
The successful candidates will be part of our dedicated and brilliant teaching team, committed to high standards for all children in both learning and behaviour. They will be versatile and flexible team players who are willing to play an active role in all aspects of school life. Experience and training for teaching children who are lower attaining and pupil premium will also be desirable.
One vacancy is likely to be in one of our Reception classes, whilst the other will be based on either a KS1 or KS2 class, although the successful candidates could be required to teach in any year group from Reception to Year 6. The roles are initially for a fixed term period for 1 year from September 2021, with one of the roles to cover maternity leave, and so subject to the return of the substantive post-holder. We hope however that both roles could be extended past this initial period.
The successful candidates will:
- Be outstanding practitioners and have the ability to work collaboratively and motivate others
- Have high expectations for standards of achievement and behaviour
- Be able to demonstrate how their teaching has impacted positively on outcomes for children.
We are able to offer:
- Delightful, motivated, well behaved children
- A team of hard working and supportive colleagues
- Interested and involved parents and Governors
- Opportunities to get involved in whole school and wider community events
- A commitment to your professional development
- A commitment to staff wellbeing, including a staff Employee Assistance Programme available to all staff
Unfortunately we are unable to offer tours of our wonderful school due to Covid-19 and the national lockdown. You can however gain a flavour of our school from our website, in particular the welcome video from our Head Teacher.
We are very hopeful that the successful candidates will be able to come to our school to meet their new class before the end of term.
