The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect that all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified teacher to join our team of class teachers on a fixed term and full-time basis to start in January 2021 and likely to continue through to December 2021 to cover maternity leave. We anticipate the person appointed teaching in Year 4. The school is currently operating a COVID-19 timetable which assigns form teachers to their class bubble for the majority of the time. Although cover may be required outside class bubbles, this will be kept to a minimum. The school has its own COVID-19 risk assessment which is included within the relevant job advertisement documentation.
At Lady Barn, form teachers take their class for Maths, English, and other subjects apart from those which are taught by specialists (Music, ICT, Science, PE/Games, Foreign Languages, Drama and Art/Design Technology). Since the school offers a broad PE and Games programme, a willingness and ability to contribute in this area will be welcome.
The school is a particularly supportive, friendly and child-centred place in which to work. Our children work hard, try their best and are well behaved, so are very rewarding to work with. Partnership with parents is active and very positive.
This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, forward-thinking professional to join our highly committed teaching team. We want you to not only be able to teach to a very high standard but also to be innovative and creative in your approach, adapting your teaching style to ‘how children learn best’ and be committed to the school’s flexible and varied approaches to learning, and to its well known high standards.
