Location: Exeter based for 2 terms
Required to start January 2023.
We are wishing to recruit a Primary School Class Teacher who is prepared to work flexibly across our Exeter schools, to support us during a time of growth post Covid.
The role will be very varied and therefore you will need to be able to adapt to change quickly. There has been a higher level of absence due to Covid so not only will you help provide support across year groups where staff are absent, you will help to support specific year groups in our “Covid Catch-Up” programme. The role will therefore entail working as part of a team of teachers and support staff, delivering a range of learning opportunities, based primarily in KS1 or lower KS2. You will need to cover class teachers to enable them to work intensively with groups of children or in the delivery of our English Hub programme of support to other schools. A good level of understanding and proven experience of teaching Phonics through a ReadWrite Inc scheme would be desirable, so we can ensure that the reading programme is delivered with the rigour required to ensure good outcomes for all children.
We want our teachers to embrace the ethos of teaching a knowledge rich, purposeful, and project-based curriculum, through the meaningful use of technology. To be successful, you must demonstrate that you are willing to teach innovatively and reflectively, as well being prepared to collaborate with teams of colleagues. You must also be open to delivering high quality lessons and projects in a way that blends physical and digital learning environments, through video calling and online resources. The successful candidate will be keen to support and build on the international reputation that the school has for digitally integrated teaching.
Our employees have access to the teacher’s pension scheme, a health scheme, a cycle to work scheme and subsidised meals in our staff café with food cooked and served by our own chefs. Successful candidates will be provided with state-of-the-art IT equipment and will work in modern, digitally enabled classrooms where children have access to 1:1 to a Microsoft Surface device. To enable teachers to become the best they can be, we support them with a weekly an investment in their professional development through training and there is a good performance management process, where accelerated progress is payable to those who achieve highly. For NQT’s we provide a weekly programme with specialist support from an NQT programme leader, a mentor and with inputs delivered by experienced teachers.
The post is available from January 2023.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check is required for all our posts.
We look forward to receiving your application and hopefully meeting you as part of the recruitment process
