What skills and experience we're looking for

Ideally, we are looking to appoint one candidate for 30 hours per week, but we will consider applications from candidates who wish to work fewer hours (e.g. 2 or 3 days) and where we can appoint more than one person to cover the total hours. The hours of work are expected to be 08:30 - 15:30 with 1 hour unpaid break, but we may be a little flexible for the right candidate.

The successful candidate(s) will:

  • Be suitably qualified (please refer to the person specification documents for details of this);

  • Have relevant and recent experience leading whole classes under a framework of supervision;

  • Be motivated to provide the best learning experiences possible for our pupils;

  • Work collaboratively with colleagues and have a positive and solution-focused outlook;

  • Be flexible and willing to adapt to suit the school’s needs as they arise, sometimes on short notice

The purpose of this role is to provide high quality learning opportunities and cover on behalf of the class teacher, during periods of planned and unplanned absence. You will collaborate with teachers and other staff to plan, deliver and provide feedback for classes, small groups and individual pupils throughout the school within a framework agreed with and under the guidance and supervision of qualified teachers.

Brookfield Primary Academy is one of 7 schools that make up LEO Academy Trust.
Located in North Cheam, Brookfield is a two form primary with nursery offering 30 hours childcare. Brookfield was inspected by Ofsted in July 2019 and was found to be good in all categories. The inspectors found that "Leaders, governors and representatives of the trust have a very clear vision for what they want pupils to experience and achieve while at Brookfield. They have an accurate understanding of the school’s strengths and use this to plan effectively for improvement. There is a real focus on raising standards. Consequently, many
outcomes are better than when the school first joined the trust."
