If you believe that you could contribute to a school which at its last inspection was recognised as good in all areas and has continued to improve then we would welcome your application.
We are looking to appoint a Full time teacher KS2 , temporary for one year to cover maternity leave, from 24 August 2020.
Interviews will take place during the week commencing 8 June 2020
Broom Leys is a large primary school (550+ on roll), with three classes in each year group. Within each year group teachers work in teams, alongside expert Learning Support Assistants and Cover Supervisors (who provide PPA and other release time).
Why would you choose Broom Leys?
If you were to gain employment at Broom Leys you will find children who enjoy school, are positive about their experiences and who will make you feel very welcome.
We have excellent facilities including two computer suites, a newly refurbished music room, several quiet rooms, a large hall and library. The outdoor environment extends to 9 acres and includes a good sized playing field, a ball court, nature areas and mature grounds for outdoor learning, including Forest Schools.
Music and the Arts play a large part in school life. We have a vibrant choir and endeavour to provide children with a range of opportunities to participate in and to enjoy live performances. Last year the school was awarded the Leicestershire Schools’ Music Service Silver Award.
Sport is a real strength. We have been awarded the School Games Platinum Award, the only school (primary or secondary) to have achieved this in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland! But don’t worry if you’re not a sports specialist; we employ our own PE and Sports coordinator who will teach alongside you to develop your skills and confidence in this area.
As part of the Forest Way Teaching School Alliance, continual professional development is of great importance to us, whether a Newly Qualified Teacher or a teacher with several years’ experience. We also provide in-house training, making the most of the expertise within our own staff, including three Specialist Leaders of Education.
The school converted to Academy Status in November 2012, allowing us greater creativity with our curriculum and flexibility with our finances. We employ teachers on the same Terms and Conditions as those in the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document. In November 2017 we formed a Multi Academy Trust along with the two local High Schools, Castle Rock High School and Newbridge High School. This is an exciting development in the life of the school and one which is benefiting us through shared expertise and staff development.
The best way to get to know us is to come and visit. If you would like to do so, you are more than welcome; please just get in touch with a member of the school admin team who will be able to make an appointment for you.
Broom Leys Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
