The role of a teacher in the lives of both the children and wider community is a vital and special responsibility. At Great Addington, our vision is to work as an outstanding centre for learning and this is achieved through high quality teaching, with a commitment to valuing potential in all members of our community. We are excited to recruit for an enthusiastic and passionate KS1 Class Teacher, who shares in this vision, supplemented by thorough knowledge and effective experience, to deliver the very best education for all.
The ideal candidate would have experience in Key Stage 1. This role may provide an opportunity to lead both Science and Geography across the school.
We are looking to appoint someone who:
- Is enthusiastic, approachable, and friendly
- Ensures all children feel safe, happy, and able to learn
- Has an understanding of the curriculum and pastoral needs of primary aged children
- Is able to deliver high quality first teaching
- Is confident in using a range of behaviour management strategies
- Has the ability to work effectively, flexibly, and independently and above all is a committed team member
- Is supportive of the ethos of a Church and Trust school
We offer a well-planned, and progressive curriculum, that reflects our local needs and context, to meet our particular aims and values. Our results have been successful because we trust staff to be innovative and impart excellence to our children. The ideal candidate would therefore share this passion, to drive the personal and academic progression of children, whilst contributing to a safe, creative, and exciting learning environment.
Great Addington Primary is an established part of the beautiful local community, where children and staff alike, develop cherished memories. We strive to ensure that by the time a child leaves our school, they have had the chance to experience a rich and exciting curriculum, to develop a growth mindset and improve their academic resilience. We believe that learning should be ‘immersive’ and therefore work hard to supplement this with outstanding enrichment opportunities, to make all experiences for the children ‘come alive’ in a range of contexts.
Working in partnership with all our young people and their families, we establish honest and trusting relationships, which are crucial in achieving the success for our pupils that they deserve. By working together to build and contribute to, an environment that values, safeguards, and nurtures all, it enables all our children to achieve their full potential academically, personally, and spiritually.
This commitment is extended to our Staff Community too, to ensure we work as a focussed employer, that priorities mental health and values all contributions. In doing so, we hope to build a rewarding and collaborative working environment, that is filled with happy and motivated children. Together we build a Christian foundation of love, care, respect, and forgiveness for all members of our school family. These deeply embedded values influence our whole lives and community, permeating everything we are and do. This close working team are excited to welcome you to our school!
