Due to an unexpected change in circumstances, we are looking for an outstanding Year 6 Class Teacher to join our hardworking and dedicated staff team. 

From January 2022 we need a Class Teacher to take over one of our Year 6 classes and to continue the excellent work of the current post holder. A successful candidate would, above all, be an exceptional teacher committed to developing the children's learning potential. This post would suit an ambitious teacher eager to gain experience in a large primary school and will provide a wide range of teaching opportunities. 

Teaching in Year 6 brings its own unique challenges but you will be joining a very strong, experienced and dedicated team. All teachers in our school receive the highest level of support and training. Experience and knowledge of teaching children in their Key Stage 2 SATs year would be an advantage but we would also stress that Year 6 is about learning, great experiences and enjoyment - not just the tests!

You would also be expected to have - a good sense of humour - flexibility - a desire to make learning enjoyable - strong self-motivation and organisational skills - energy and enthusiasm - strong and effective behavioural management skills - a share in the school's commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children

In return we can offer you: - an extremely rewarding and diverse environment to work in - strong Senior Leadership support - excellent career development. For more experienced teachers, there could be future opportunities for subject leadership.

Interviews will take place in person and you will be asked to teach as part of this process.

If you would like more information please contact the Headteacher Pete Talbot to arrange an informal visit.
