What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an inspirational, ambitious and talented class teacher to join our dedicated and enthusiastic team on a permanent contract. The role of the Class Teacher is central to the success of The Palmer Academy and is a position which has a direct impact on the outstanding learning opportunities provided to the pupils.

All the Class Teachers at The Palmer Academy are line-managed by an Assistant Headteacher or Phase Leader. Class Teachers are responsible for the day-to-day teaching and learning provision for all children in their class, including those with Special Educational Needs, English as an Additional Language, those more-able learners and those eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant. You will receive coaching and mentoring from experienced leaders in the academy to ensure that you are supported in all aspects of what you do.

Therefore, we welcome applications from experienced teachers as well as those Early Careers Teachers (ECTs).

All teachers will receive 10% Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) time each week, in addition to release time for ECTs or Subject Leadership. Whatever your teaching background, we would love to hear from you!

At Palmer, we rightly pride ourselves on the high expectations we place on the academic achievements and behaviour of all children, whatever their need, as well as a broad, diverse and engaging creative curriculum which underpins all that we do. Palmer is an inclusive setting, valuing all children’s achievements, ensuring that each child is given every opportunity to meet their full potential. There is no doubt that Palmer is an exciting place to be – for children, staff, parents and the local community!

As a Class Teacher, you will be passionate about ensuring the best outcomes for children and giving them every opportunity to succeed, whatever their barriers may be. The Palmer Academy is an academy where every child is respected and treated as an individual, with no limits placed on their learning – just opportunities to continually improve with a Growth Mindset approach. We do not ‘label’ children or group them by perceived ‘ability’; we will instead give all children equal opportunities to challenge themselves through the range of tasks and activities presented to them – empowering children to take ownership and responsibility for their own learning.

What we’re looking for

  • A motivated individual who wants to achieve the very best for the children in our care and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence
  • Excellent inter-personal skills
  • Experience as an effective good and outstanding classroom teacher
  • Excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour
  • Good organisational skills
  • Creativity which drives all aspects of teaching and learning.

What the school offers its staff

  • A firm commitment to you and your professional development
  • Friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and Governors
  • A growing learning community
  • Encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference
  • Coaching and mentoring from the academy’s experienced Leadership Team
  • Fantastic trust-wide CPD opportunities
  • Vast opportunities for career progression
  • Membership of the Teacher’s Pension Scheme TPS
  • As part of REAch2 employee benefits we also offer an eye care scheme, access to an Employee Assistance Programme for you and your immediate family and membership of ‘perks at work’ – which includes discounts on holidays, shopping, family days out and much more.
