Edgewood Primary School has an exciting opportunity for a dedicated teacher to join our friendly and committed staff. The post will start on 1st January 2022.
We are a Good school based in Hucknall in Nottinghamshire having been inspected last in March 2020. We are looking for a new member of staff to come and build on our recent successes and continue our drive forwards.
The successful candidate will be a strong Key Stage Two teacher, with experience of teaching children in that age group either in previous posts or on placements while training. If not an NQT, the successful candidate will be expected to take on a subject leadership role.
Our school is organised into supportive teams of classes which will help the successful candidate settle into our school quickly mid-year and feel well supported. The teams work closely together to share ideas and workload.
We want our school to be filled with people who are enthusiastic about things – both in teaching and outside of teaching - that they can bring into our school to engage and inspire our children. We pride ourselves on being outward-looking to improve our own practices while boasting a strong internal capacity to reflect and improve. We don’t rest on our laurels but equally we always look to refine our systems first rather than rely on wholesale change. If we don’t think something will have an impact on children’s learning, we don’t do it.
As a school we offer a staff body with considerable knowledge giving a wide breadth of staff training opportunities within our school. We are involved in a number of partnerships, such as our local Primary Behaviour Partnership and a strong family of schools and purchase training from a number of different sources so we aren’t tied to one provider. This gives out staff many opportunities for continuing professional development from outside providers as well.
The school has a thorough commitment to safeguarding (and will expect all candidates to share this commitment and agree to all relevant checks and procedures) and a clear vision and values geared towards improving outcomes for all our children. There is much more information about our school on our website.
Visits to the school are strongly encouraged before applying. Please contact the school to arrange a date and time. Application packs (including person specification and job description) are available on request from the school business manager
The post is a permanent post and either main or upper pay scale. The closing date is 12pm on Monday 11th October 2021. Interviews will be held on Thursday 14th October 2021. The position will start in 1st January 2022.
Edgewood 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.
