At Ruskin Academy we live, work and learn through our 'five ways' values:

Be Proud - Show Respect - Bounce Back - Take Responsibility - Stay Safe

Would you like to work for a caring and supportive employer with dedicated career development pathways for NQT’s? Do you have relentless focus on improving outcomes & life chances for all pupils irrespective of context or situation?

If so, Ruskin Academy is looking for a Class Teacher to join for April 2022. We want to recruit staff that engage and inspire both pupils and colleagues. Ideal candidates will be resilient, hardworking and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that our provision is 'Good or better, everyday'

We are a popular and fully-inclusive junior school situated in the Queensway area of Wellingborough. We became a member of the Lion Academy Trust in September 2018 and are well on our journey to making Ruskin Academy an outstanding school. We put the children’s needs at the heart of everything we do and our children's outcomes for the end of the key stage, and attendance continues to be well above the national and local averages. Our children are extremely well behaved and always aspire to be ‘the best versions of themselves’

We have a fully resourced school and an embedded Trust pedagogy. This includes a developed programme of investment in the IT infrastructure and environment of the school both internal and external.

We are forward-thinking, caring and, most important of all, a happy school where pupils of all abilities and social backgrounds achieve. Our ‘Five Ways’ values are at the heart of everything we do and all decisions we make.

We incorporate our Trust induction programme alongside bespoke career professional development. Programmes range from Newly Qualified Teacher development through to Middle and Senior Leader qualifications. Our partnership with the Institute of Education enhances this CPD offer, with many professional qualifications open to our team. We have a strong track record over recent years of NQT’s joining the school and moving on into leadership roles within the trust.

What do we offer our teachers?
A dynamic leadership team, to offer you the support and guidance that you need;
Bespoke Trust CPD and external professional development opportunities;
Experienced teachers to mentor you with commitment, drive and a genuine smile;

An employee assistance programme that is free to all employees and their families

We welcome all prospective candidates to arrange a call with one of our senior leadership team to talk through this career opportunity. Please contact the school office on to arrange.

On behalf of our fantastic staff and amazing children at Ruskin, I look forward to hearing from you and receiving your application.
