Year 1 Class Teacher
PURPOSE OF JOB
To deliver high quality teaching and learning to pupils who are assigned to the post-holder.
Class teachers are directly responsible and accountable to the Headteacher, and in his absence, the Deputy Headteacher.
All teachers work within the statutory conditions of employment set out in the current School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document. The duties listed below are not, therefore, an exhaustive list of what is required.
• Be responsible for the quality of teaching and learning of all pupils who are assigned to the post-holder.
• Contribute to a positive ethos in which all pupils have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.
• Supervise the work of any support staff, including higher level teaching assistants and support teachers, who are assigned to work with the post-holder’s pupils.
• Provide leadership across the school in a designated subject or curriculum area (except Newly Qualified Teachers), which will include:
i) monitoring quality and standards
ii) contributing to school planning and self-evaluation
iii) providing professional support to other teachers and support staff
iv) advising the headteacher on appropriate resources and materials
v) leading appropriate professional development.
All of the Class Teachers at Green Ridge are line-managed by their Phase Leader/Head of Learning for their Key Stage. 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 Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs).
Essential educational requirements

Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
Essential skills and experience
Teaching or placements within the primary age phase.
The monitoring, assessment for learning, recording and reporting of pupils’ progress.

The National Curriculum and/or Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
Knowledge of the statutory requirements of legislation concerning Equal Opportunities, Health & Safety, SEND and Child Protection .A range of effective teaching and learning styles.
For the right candidate, we are offering a TLR 2 to take a greater role within the wider leadership of the academy by leading a core subject. This specific role would not be suitable for NQTs, and would suit a teacher who has sufficient classroom teaching experience within Key Stage Two to enable them to fulfil this role. There is scope that this role could further develop into a senior leadership role, depending on the candidate and their wealth of experience. We are keen to develop staff such as through the National Professional Qualification programme and in-school coaching and mentoring, and would really like to hear from you if you are keen to take your next step in leadership and make your mark!
All teachers will receive 10% Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) time each week, in addition to release time for NQTs or Subject Leadership. For more experienced teachers, or those looking to fast-track perhaps in their second or third year of teaching, we have a range of different leadership opportunities available where you could lead on various subjects or areas of the school. Whatever your teaching background, we would love to hear from you!
