Required for January/February 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter, we are looking for a passionate, talented and experienced classroom practitioner to join our dynamic organisation. The successful candidate will lead a mixed Year 1 & 2 class and this post offers an opportunity to support the implementation of a curriculum that aims to enable all children to become the best version of themselves.
If you are a teacher with real ambition to develop your career further and would like to be at the forefront of current school improvement opportunities, we need you. A key expectation to support school improvement will be to lead the continuing development of high-quality continuous provision, both indoor and outdoor, in a vocabulary-rich, well maintained and inspiring environment.
The Trust offer the prospect of teaching in a range of settings, being empowered to develop your own expert knowledge and skills and the chance to support others in their professional journey. You will be part of a proficient team dedicated to improving the outcomes for all our children, where your work-life balance will be promoted. We offer you the support of clear systems, protocols, expectations and structures to help you to succeed within the role.
You will need to be an inspirational and reflective practitioner who shows initiative, resilience, creativity and demonstrates the aptitude and professionalism to work as part of a successful and growing team that is driven to improve the life chances of our pupils. We expect you to effectively liaise with parents, stakeholders and the community. The School leaders will recognise and develop your expertise and skills to ensure career development.
We want you to come and join our positive learning environment, where our consistent vision is that through collaboration we will always be ‘Stronger Together’.
What we are looking for in a candidate is:
- A commitment to developing your own practice through engagement in professional learning in order to effectively implement the most current teaching strategies.
- An understanding of how pupils learn and real commitment to provide and maintain high-quality indoor and outdoor learning opportunities.
- A recognition of our amazing children; nurturing, supporting and challenging them, meeting their needs to ensure they have independent learning behaviours that will see them prepared for their future learning journey.
- An ability to see the best in all and promote positive behaviours at all times.
- A clear desire to engage with the wider school community and develop meaningful links.
- A cheerful, fresh and creative approach to giving the children under your care the best version of yourself.
- Experience of working in KS1 and teaching phonics.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A DBS disclosure is required for this post.
