Would you like to teach in an outstanding school where you can concentrate on being a fantastic teacher?

We are looking for a wonderful, creative teacher to join our dedicated, welcoming and supportive team from April 2019 to provide maternity cover.  For the summer terms, this position is in Year 6, but is likely to be in another year group from autumn 2019. There is the possibility that this position may be extended beyond the period of maternity cover.

The successful applicant will work alongside the existing Year 6 teacher for the first two weeks after Easter in order to ensure a smooth transition. We would then need our new teacher to lead our Year 6 children through SATs testing and a wide range of creative and sporting opportunities, making their final term of primary school a creative and fun experience. The Year 6 class are well supported by two teaching assistants, who bring strong levels of expertise. Our children are fun, enthusiastic and well behaved and we would welcome a flexible approach to teaching and learning in Term 6, with the freedom to introduce new experiences and themed days and weeks into the curriculum.

Our Year 6 children would like their teacher to be someone who:

  • is understanding
  • is firm but fair
  • has a good sense of humour (we love to laugh) - cheesy jokes optional but encouraged!
  • appreciates that we are all unique

At Ryarsh Primary School we can offer you:

  • a school culture which allows you to focus on enjoying teaching
  • a welcoming school, genuinely at the heart of its community
  • a newly improved school environment on completion of our current building project
  • a creative, supportive and friendly staff team
  • children who are motivated, articulate and great fun
  • excellent opportunities for professional development, within our school and local collaboration
  • flexibility to build on your strengths and talents

We are proud to be a highly successful school, rated Outstanding by Ofsted. Our visitors tell us that our school has a great feel and ethos, living up to our school motto, "forward thinking for a brighter future". Please visit us to experience this for yourself. In your application, we would love to hear about the skills and experience that you would bring to our team.

Ryarsh Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointment to the position will be subject to an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau Disclosure check.
