What skills and experience we're looking for

Ideally, we are looking to appoint an inspirational, ambitious and talented Upper Key Stage Two (Year Five/Six) Class Teacher to join our dedicated and enthusiastic team on a permanent contract starting September 2024 – or earlier by mutual negotiation. However, we do have some flexibility to make this a teacher elsewhere within the school, if this is mutually beneficial with the appointed candidate and the school. However, our preference and need is for Year Five or Six.

The role of the Class Teacher is central to the success of Green Ridge and is a position which has a direct impact on the outstanding learning opportunities provided to the pupils.

All the Class Teachers at Green Ridge are line-managed by the Assistant Headteacher for their phase. Class Teachers are responsible for the day-to-day teaching and learning provision for all children in their class, including those with Special Educational Needs, English as an Additional Language, those more-able learners and those eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant. You will receive coaching and mentoring from experienced leaders in the academy to ensure that you are supported in all aspects of what you do.

Therefore, we welcome applications from experienced teachers as well as those Early Careers Teachers (ECTs). We have various opportunities for leadership development within the curriculum and across the whole-school, which we would be excited to share with you if you are looking to take the next step in your development!

All teachers will receive 10% Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) time each week, in addition to release time for ECTs or Subject Leadership. Whatever your teaching background, we would love to hear from you!

At Green Ridge, we rightly pride ourselves on the high expectations we place on the academic achievements and behaviour of all children, whatever their need, as well as a broad, diverse and engaging creative curriculum which underpins all that we do. Green Ridge is an inclusive setting, valuing all children’s achievements, ensuring that each child is given every opportunity to meet their full potential. There is no doubt that Green Ridge is an exciting place to be – for children, staff, parents and the local community!

As a Class Teacher, you will be passionate about ensuring the best outcomes for children and giving them every opportunity to succeed, whatever their barriers may be. Green Ridge is an academy where every child is respected and treated as an individual, with no limits placed on their learning – just opportunities to continually improve with a Growth Mindset approach. We do not ‘label’ children or group them by perceived ‘ability’; we will instead give all children equal opportunities to challenge themselves through the range of tasks and activities presented to them – empowering children to take ownership and responsibility for their own learning.

We are looking for a candidate who is:

  • A KS2 teacher with high expectations of all pupils, who can engage and inspire the learning behaviours that will support all in achieving their best.
  • An excellent practitioner, keen to work in a supportive and principle-based school.
  • Driven by a strong moral purpose to enable all children to achieve and have integrity.
  • Passionate about creativity and have a sense of humour.
  • Warm in character, easy to work with and committed to teamwork, recognising that more can be achieved together than is possible as individuals.
  • Keen to be challenged to become the best you can be.
  • Determined to succeed with a positive attitude.
  • Committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

What the school offers its staff

  • Enthusiastic and well-behaved pupils.
  • A Leadership Team dedicated to helping you develop an outstanding career and balanced life.
  • Exciting, accelerated leadership development and early promotion opportunities for the right candidates across the Trust.
  • The chance to work with a fantastic team, with the best possible opportunities to share ideas, planning, assessment etc.
  • The opportunity to work alongside excellent teachers, to observe and share practice on a regular basis.
  • The chance to develop personal curriculum strengths.
  • An excellent CPD training programme
  • A dynamic, creative staff, dedicated to achieving whole-school improvement and building lifelong friendships.
  • Enthusiastic and proactive parents.

Commitment to safeguarding

At REAch2 we recognise that those who work in an academy are in a unique position in their care of children. The responsibility for all staff to safeguard pupils and promote their welfare, as stated in Section 175 of the Education Act (2002) is one that is central to our ethos, our policies and our actions. All children are deserving of the highest levels of care and safeguarding, regardless of their individual characteristics or circumstances, and we are committed to applying our policies to ensure effective levels of safeguarding and care are afforded to all our pupils.

Green Ridge Academy is a new primary school built on Berryfields, which opened in September 2017 in temporary accommodation on the site of the permanent building. The permanent school building opened in September 2018. In September 2023, the academy will be two-form entry from Nursery through to Year Six, taking children from aged 2-11, with two bulge classes in YR and Y1 as we continue our preparations to become a 3-form entry school. Whilst the school currently has the capacity for over 450 children, this is an exciting time at Green Ridge, as we continue to grow our site is being expanded with the additional capacity so that by September 2024, our building will be able to accommodate over 650 children. Exciting!
