Job summary

Due to an increase in pupil numbers we are expanding our lovely little school to meet the demand for places. Therefore, a vacancy has arisen for a new Classteacher that we hope to place in our Early Years Class from September 2021.

This post would particularly suit a newly or recently qualified teacher as we have a very talented and experienced team of staff eager to share their expertise and support a new member of the team.

We are looking for:
• someone who is inspirational, creative and nurturing.
• a highly effective teacher who delivers consistently high quality learning experiences for
all pupils.
• someone who sets high standards for themselves and for all children
• someone who is able to create a stimulating learning environment that encourages
independence and inquisitiveness both indoors and outdoors
• a good communicator who can develop effective relationships with the staffing team,
parents and the wider community.
• someone who is energetic, committed and excited about their career
• someone who will uphold and promote our school ethos
• an interest or expertise in leading Physical Education or Art/DT in the future would be an
advantage but not essential.

What we can offer:
• Brilliantly behaved children with a thirst for learning;
• The support of two teaching assistants within your class
• A happy family atmosphere where Christian values are upheld, not only in worship and
Religious Education, but across the whole life of the school.
• Friendly, experienced and supportive staff team;
• Experienced and ambitious leaders who really care about the children and staffing team.
• Supportive parents who are keen to get involved in school life
• An idyllic setting with a modern building and great facilities.
• Support and guidance from our network of schools (TVCLT- Tame Valley Cooperative

St. Leonard’s C of E (A) Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff to share this commitment and to undergo appropriate checks. This position is subject to a criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service which will require you to disclose details of all unspent and unfiltered spent reprimands, formal warnings, cautions and convictions in your application form.

The role is covered by part 7 of the Immigration Act 2016 and therefore the ability to speak fluent spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.
