Experienced KS1 Teacher Required from September 2022

We are looking for an exceptional teacher to join our team. This position was previously advertised as fixed term but we are now in a position to offer the position as permanent.
Previous applicants need not re- apply.

We’re looking for someone with an energy and enthusiasm for teaching who can really make a difference for our pupils ideally in Year 1 or Year 2.

Our first Reception Cohort started in September 2020 in a brand new Early Years facility lead by our newly appointed Assistant Headteacher. This cohort of children are now in Year 1 and our second Reception cohort started with us in September 2021.
From September 2022 we will have classes in Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Years 3 to 6.
This is a very exciting time for us as our school continues to undergo this significant change and all our staff, pupils and community realise the opportunities this brings.

We are looking for a highly motivated, enthusiastic teacher who:
• is passionate about learning and has a good understanding of how children learn and develop
• has experience of teaching in Key Stage 1 or EYFS
• puts the well-being, happiness and progress of our children first
• has the highest expectations of all the pupils and themselves
• has a positive outlook and enables children to believe they can achieve
• is inspirational, innovative and a creative practitioner
• is enthusiastic and willing to work with us to improve our academy
• enjoys working collaboratively and being part of an outstanding team
• is flexible and willing to contribute to all aspects of academy life
• has a good sense of humour

We can offer:
• a friendly, welcoming, enthusiastic and committed staff team
• a strong supportive and experienced senior leadership team and Governing Body
• fantastic children who are keen to learn
• commitment to CPD and professional development with opportunities across the Trust.
• a newly refurbished Early Years and Key Stage 1 environment.
• the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment both within the academy and also as part of the DNEAT family of schools which includes 37 other primary schools
• a happy and positive working environment with PPA at home

Applications will be subject to the Academy’s Safe Recruitment procedures including an enhanced DBS check. This post is likely to come under the requirements of the Childcare (Disqualification) 2009 regulations and the successful applicant will be required to complete a declaration form to establish whether they are disqualified under these regulations.
