Are You Keen To Develop And Grow Your Leadership Skills?

Maple Grove Primary School is at an exciting stage of its continuing development, building upon the existing successes and looking to grow. An exciting opportunity has arisen for someone to permanently join Maple Grove Primary School as a Classroom Teacher from September 2023. We seek someone to be a kind, calm and nurturing role model with a positive 'can do' attitude.

The successful candidate will:

  • be a good KS1 practitioner with a passion for learning
  • have high expectations for all children, motivating and engaging them in the learning process
  • have the confidence to ensure the highest expectations of achievement and behaviour
  • support the leadership and development of a curriculum team
  • have excellent interpersonal and communication skills

Further details about the role

The Classroom Teacher will be responsible for creating a learning experience that enables and challenges our pupils to be the best that they can be. We seek to ensure that children have the best possible experiences with us, so aspirational and exciting teaching is encouraged.

Ideally, we are looking for an excellent practitioner with experience teaching Key Stage 1; however, teaching experience will not be a determining factor - we welcome applications from newly qualified teachers (ECT) and more experienced candidates. We will develop every staff member that joins our team, providing one-to-one support, coaching and mentoring and access to extensive network training.

The role of Classroom Teacher is rewarding, with the opportunity for professional autonomy within the role to create the classroom environment that enables development. We are heavily focused on trying to ensure that the work-life balance for teachers is manageable; this is under regular review.

Commitment to safeguarding

Maple Grove Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring checks and other relevant employment checks. Maple Grove Primary School is an equal opportunities employer.
