Here at Goldsborough Church of England Primary School we offer a vibrant and inspirational curriculum underpinned by a unique Church ethos. Our school is in an idyllic village setting close to Knaresborough.

As part of the Goldsborough Sicklinghall Federation, our united team work relentlessly to ensure that every child in both of our schools receives the best education and the best support to meet the SEMH and SEND needs.

Our ethos is very much about helping the children to be the best that they can be by developing the skills that are essential to them becoming upstanding members of the community. We believe that when you develop the personal characteristics for learning first, children have the confidence to shine.

Working with children is the best job in the world and as a school we encourage all staff to actively participate and organise exciting projects across both sites in our federation.

As we navigate post-Covid school, this is an exciting time for our school as we develop the curriculum further with staff development, training and resources at the heart of our journey. Our children only have one primary education and in these challenging times for education, our passion must ensure we strive to create inspiring and engaging opportunities for every single pupil.

Our Opportunity

We believe that a good practitioner can help develop the learning characteristics for a child’s whole academic career. We are looking to appoint an inspirational Teacher, dedicated to embedding curriculum knowledge in practical and exciting ways that challenge and engage all learners in a Key Stage Two environment. We are seeking a professional who has the self-motivation and organisation to become the best that they can be.

With tailored support from your new colleagues and leaders, we will further develop you as a practitioner and give you the skills, encouragement and experience to excel within our unique federation setting. All we ask in return is flexibility, commitment, a love of learning, initiative and pride in your work as you create those remarkable ‘lightbulb’ moments for our pupils. Children have been faced with a turbulent time at school - we are seeking someone who will go ‘above and beyond’ to secure happiness and success for all pupils.

We are looking for:

• A skilled professional who has an engaging and dynamic style of leading interventions.

• A Teacher with an understanding of SEND, SEMH and the complex needs that make up any cohort of children.

• A Teacher with experience of directing a TA to support individual children and to lead dynamic, same-day interventions for pupils in their class.

• A Teacher who understands SEND and SEMH and includes all children in lessons, adapting and creating resources to allow all children to thrive.

• A person who can build trust with pupils and develop their independence, resilience and self-belief.

• A professional who is able to manage their time effectively to meet the complex needs of any cohort to ensure that interventions and Teacher Standards are fulfilled to a high standard.

• Someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure our children achieve their very best, promoting excellence within the class and Key Stage and sharing expertise across the federation.

• A character who has the drive to lead change with a relentless attitude to ensure that all children succeed.

• A Teacher with a sense of humour and flair for primary education who will embrace the challenges of supporting children in a mixed age class.

• A positive character who has initiative and is self-motivated, willing to embrace change.

• A Teacher who cares.

• A character who demonstrates flexibility to meet the needs of the federation.

• A Teacher with an understanding of the full KS2 curriculum.

We can offer you:

• A warm, happy school where we value each individual child and the community in which it stands.

• Happy, enthusiastic and well-behaved children, eager to learn.

Goldsborough Church of England Primary School (VC) is a popular, inclusive, rural school situated in an idyllic location in the village of Goldsborough, close to Knaresborough.

Our school is an important part of the community, maintaining close links with the parishioners, particularly through our planned events with Reverend Stroma McDermott (the Team Vicar) and Reverend Garry Hinchcliffe (the Team Rector), both of whom are key figures in school representing St. Mary The Virgin – the church which stands at the heart of Goldsborough village.

As part of the Goldsborough Sicklinghall Federation, we are able to access many exciting opportunities for collaboration for both the children and staff. We are proud of our Christian Values and the way we use these as the cornerstones to underpin our nurturing, family ethos, and the values that we focus on enable our children to become the most wonderful, well-rounded people, who are ready to have a positive impact on the world around them, now and in the future.

Our light and spacious school building provides a wonderful learning environment in which all of our children can flourish.

Our aim, above everything else, is to ensure that that Social, Emotional, and Mental Health needs are met for every child on a daily basis. We know that when children feel safe and secure, and have the right mind-set, they are more able to tackle the curriculum, learn to the best of their ability and truly flourish in their primary education.

We value all of God’s children and we know them as individuals; we tailor our teaching to their distinct needs and focus on helping each child acquire skills for the 21st century. The curriculum that we offer develops inquisitive learners who are fully engaged in lessons, have high aspirations for their own future and evaluate their individual progress along the way. Threaded through every aspect of our teaching are the hidden elements of the curriculum, which we believe are the most important skills for later life. We help our children to develop resourcefulness (the ability to organise one’s own learning), reflectiveness (the ability to think about and evaluate one’s own learning and the world around them), and resilience (the ability to try several strategies and skills in order to succeed, persevering and not giving up).

Our wider curriculum is exciting and allows children to learn from the past and understand how to apply their understanding in their own future. The classroom environments focus on helping children to achieve their personal best while providing challenge and support at all levels. Our school instils positive attitudes for learning: active listening behaviours and children being dynamically engaged in their own progress is a vital aspect for ensuring success for all. We care about others and are tolerant, we embrace challenge, we encourage each other and we include everyone.

If you would like to visit the school and meet our charming, confident, and respectful children, please do not hesitate to arrange an appointment – we would be delighted to welcome you to Goldsborough.
