We want someone who has:

- The motivation to achieve the very best for the children in our care and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence - Excellent inter-personal skills - Experience as an effective good and outstanding classroom teacher - Excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour

- Good organisational skills

- Creativity which drives all aspects of teaching and learning.

What the school offers its staff

In return we can offer:

- A firm commitment to you and your professional development - Friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and Governors - A growing learning community - Encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference

- Coaching and mentoring from the academy’s experienced Leadership Team

- Fantastic trust-wide CPD opportunities

- Vast opportunities for career progression

Further details about the role

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 or Phase Leader 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). There may be opportunities for additional leadership responsibilities and a Teaching and Learning Responsibility payment, for an exceptional candidate, based on their experience and skills. Applicants should state in their application if they feel they could offer additional leadership experience and skills for this.

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

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!
