What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an additional teacher to join our team until 31st August 2024 in the first instance, but there is a possibility of extending this, subject to staffing requirements.

As a newly appointed member of the Sir Martin Frobisher family, you will help shape our future direction. You will work alongside our Senior Leadership Team and other Sir Martin Frobisher staff to help create an exciting and vibrant school, where all children thrive, regardless of their background.

You will work in partnership with other Class Teachers and Learning Support Assistants. You will be supported by experienced Senior Leaders and be part of the wider Academy Team.

There is potential for your role to grow and adapt with the academy over the coming years, with leadership opportunities, as the school develops and improves.

You may be expected to lead a curriculum subject area, unless you are an ECT.

What we’re looking for:

We are looking for a good classroom practitioner who would be happy to work in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Initially, you would be working in KS1 in the mornings and lower KS2 in the afternoons. You will be highly driven and motivated, have an eye for detail, and can work flexibly and creatively.

The successful candidate will have:

  • An excellent understanding of the EYFS / National Curriculum, age-related expectations and Early Learning Goals
  • The motivation and resilience to achieve the very best for the children in our care and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence
  • Proven experience as a good classroom teacher
  • Experience of working with children of different ages within Key Stage One and Two
  • Excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour
  • The ability to be a positive team player and be able to use their own initiative

What the school offers its staff

In return we can offer:

  • 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 a member of the academy’s Senior Leadership Team
  • Fantastic Trust-wide CPD opportunities
  • Vast opportunities for career progression

Ideally, you will also have experience of working with children with SEND. You will be able to scaffold and extend children's learning and develop their independent thinking through appropriate questioning as well as being committed to consistency, inclusion and challenge. You will be part of a unique community as well as being part of the largest primary Multi-Academy Trust in the country.

The children at Sir Martin Frobisher need a stable and committed staff, who really believe in them and are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure they receive the best teaching and the widest opportunities possible.
