Robert Shaw Primary & Nursery School is seeking to appoint an excellent teaching practitioner who has high expectations of pupil progress and a drive for self-development.
Robert Shaw Primary and Nursery School is a large, multi-cultural primary school, in Transform Trust, within Nottingham City. We are a two-form entry school with a 52 place Nursery. We are a popular school with almost all classes and year groups being at full capacity. Our recent Ofsted inspection (September 2021) judged our school to be good in all areas.
We have a majority of children who speak English as an additional language and who come from a variety of different ethnicities. This brings with it a variety of challenges, including the rapid development of literacy and language skills in order to access the full curriculum. There are many benefits of having such a rich and diverse community, including the strong development of British Values in which all are valued and respected. In a previous Ofsted inspection, it was noted: “They are caring towards one another and the school is a very harmonious community. Pupils have a good knowledge of world faiths and, as a result, treat one another with respect.”
We are looking for an inspirational teacher who is committed to creating a stimulating learning environment through excellent classroom practice.
• Be a consistently good / outstanding primary teacher
• Be passionate about teaching and learning and making a difference to every child.
• Care passionately about children and their development whilst still driving forward pupil progress and achievement.
• value a team working approach and be keen to contribute and share your skills with colleagues

• Calm and purposeful learning environments
