Are you looking for a new challenge?
Do you have skills, knowledge and ideas that you want to use to make a difference? Are you passionate about making a difference?
If the answer to these questions is “Yes!” then we may be what you are looking for.
We are looking to recruit an excellent teacher to work in partnership with colleagues in Lower Key Stage 2 and teach a Year 3 and 4 class. The successful candidate will be well-supported by the Lower KS2 team of experienced and early-career teachers and Teaching Assistants.
This is a fixed term contract until 31 August 2021 linked to COVID catch up funding.
Brocklewood Primary School is an exciting place to work with a large staff of friendly and hardworking people who are dedicated to making a difference to the lives of children and families from one of the most deprived areas in Nottingham.
The school is part of Transform Trust, a group of schools where we share good practice, ideas and workload and are willing to give new ideas a go. We are also active members of the Transform Teaching School Alliance and therefore have access to high quality CPD for staff at all levels, including leadership development and coaching. The school was inspected in September 2017 and is “good” in all areas. This is an exciting time to join our forward-thinking team and to help shape further improvements beyond good.
Our school motto is “IMAGINE, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE” and runs through all that we do for pupils and staff. We believe that everyone (children and adults) should be supported and developed to “Be at their Best” in order to achieve their potential.
We are proud of our Brocklewood Curriculum which has been designed to meet the needs of our pupils and prepare them to be global citizens. We are proud to be a Music Hub School and have recently been successful in achieving Voice21 Hub School status for our work on oracy. PE and Sport is also a strength of our school and we have achieved School Games Gold status for the past two years and are regularly in the top 3 schools for participation in sporting events in the city.
What are we looking for?
- An individual to teach with passion and drive, role-modelling excellence in teaching and learning.
- Someone who is excited about engaging with excellent CPD to develop their practice towards excellence.
- A teacher who is inspired by using freedoms and risks so that pupils are independently challenging themselves to achieve depth in their learning.
In return we offer:
- A welcoming community and a highly motivated, professional staff team that are driven
towards continuously raising standards.
- Excellent professional development opportunities through an extensive range of network groups and other Transform Trust initiatives
- Calm and purposeful learning environments
- Excellent partnerships between pupils, staff, parents, governors and community
- A forward-thinking approach to teaching and learning throughout the school
- Career opportunities as part of a successful Multi Academy Trust
