Class Teacher job summary

Here at Sicklinghall Community Primary School we offer a vibrant and inspirational curriculum underpinned by a unique ethos of kindness and care for all pupils. Our school is in an idyllic village setting close to Wetherby with a family feel. As part of the Goldsborough Sicklinghall Federation, our united team, including any temporary staff, work relentlessly to ensure that every child in both of our schools receives the best education and the best support to meet the SEMH and SEND needs. Our ethos is very much about helping the children to be the best that they can be by developing the skills that are essential to them becoming upstanding members of the community. We believe that when you develop the personal characteristics for learning first, children have the confidence to shine. Working with children is the best job in the world and as a school we encourage all staff to actively participate and organise exciting projects across both sites in our federation. As we continue to navigate the impact of Covid-19 on the children and their education, this is an exciting time for our school as we further develop the curriculum with staff development, training and updated resources such as Now Press Play at the heart of our journey. Our children only have one primary education and in these challenging times, our passion must ensure we strive to create inspiring and engaging opportunities for every single pupil. Our Opportunity We believe that a good practitioner can help develop the learning characteristics for a child’s whole academic career. We are looking to appoint an inspirational Teacher, dedicated to embedding curriculum knowledge in practical and exciting ways that challenge and engage all learners in a mixed EYFS and KS1 environment. We are seeking a professional who has the self-motivation and organisation to become the best that they can be, even on a temporary maternity contract. In a small school, all staff members play a vital role in the development of our children and this maternity contract is no different. We are looking to appoint someone who will fit into the team and become a member of our school family. With tailored support from your new colleagues and leaders, we will further develop you as a practitioner and give you the skills, encouragement and experience to excel within our unique federation setting. All we ask in return is flexibility, commitment, a love of learning, initiative and pride in your work as you create those remarkable ‘lightbulb’ moments for our pupils. Children have been faced with a turbulent time at school - we are seeking someone who will go ‘above and beyond’ to secure happiness and success for all pupils. We are looking for: A skilled professional who has an engaging and dynamic style of leading interventions. A Teacher with an understanding of SEND, SEMH and the complex needs that make up any cohort of children. A Teacher with experience of directing a TA to support individual children and to lead dynamic, same-day interventions for pupils in their class. A Teacher who understands SEND and SEMH and includes all children in lessons, adapting and creating resources to allow all children to thrive. A person who can build trust with pupils and develop their independence, resilience and self-belief. A professional who is able to manage their time effectively to meet the complex needs of any cohort to ensure that interventions and Teacher Standards are fulfilled to a high standard. Someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure our children achieve their very best, promoting excellence within the class and Key Stage and sharing expertise across the federation. A character who has the drive to lead change with a relentless attitude to ensure that all children succeed. A Teacher with a sense of humour and flair for primary education who will embrace the challenges of supporting children in a mixed age class. A positive character who has initiative and is self-motivated, willing to embrace change. A Teacher who cares. A character who demonstrates flexibility to meet the needs of the federation. A Teacher with an understanding of the full KS1 curriculum. A professional who has experience of multi-tasking to combine all areas of the curriculum. A Teacher who has experience of planning and resourcing Continuous Provision activities linked to the curriculum. We can offer you: A warm, happy school where we value each individual child and the community in which it stands. Happy, enthusiastic and well-behaved children, eager to learn. A school within a federation offering the opportunity to work with like-minded colleagues. An opportunity for you to thrive as you continue your journey as a professional, accessing high quality support, training and resources our school leaders have to offer.

As a school community, we ensure that the Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs are met for every child on a daily basis and that all children are valued.

When children feel safe and secure and have the right mind set, they are more able to tackle the curriculum, learn to the best of their ability and truly flourish in their primary education.

Our community works together to build positive relationships – we care for one another and the world around us. The exciting curriculum, environment and dedicated team inspire all children to be the best they can be.

With a culture of Human Values at the heart of our school and by developing the children’s spirituality, they learn to reflect on their experiences, believe in themselves and see every one of these as an opportunity to grow. We value everyone as a unique individual and our federation ethos ensures they can all achieve their full potential.
