We are looking for a new teacher to join our Ryarsh family and become an integral part of the staff team at our successful school.

This role is class based for three days per week on a temporary contract until the end of the 2021-2022 academic year.

At Ryarsh, our culture and ethos is built around a foundation of nurture. You will have the opportunity to join a school that places both the children and staff at the heart of everything it does.

Our curriculum is broad and exciting, promoting a love of many subjects. Over the period of national lockdown, we have provided our children with a range of events, including:

  • Cultural events – Burns night, St David’s Day, Chinese New Year
  • Arts events – A Lion King themed day (including a workshop form a member of the theatre show) & a dance workshop with Robin Windsor (formally a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing)
  • An aerobic workout for our children and families led by Mr Motivator.

Our school motto is ‘forward thinking for a brighter future’ and we embrace this entirely. We reflect, we debate and discuss (often through academic research and collaboration with others) and we learn – just like our children. Our school is a community of learners regardless of age.

At Ryarsh Primary School we have happy, articulate and confident children who constantly demonstrate high levels of learning behaviours and a desire to learn. This means that you have the opportunity to constantly develop your craft as an educator, as you can focus entirely on improving the teaching and learning in your classroom.

We are looking for:

  • A fantastic classroom practitioner who is able to lead by example
  • A great role model for both colleagues and children
  • Able to lead, motivate and inspire children and adults based on a foundation of strong relationships
  • Creative, fun, energetic and wanting to make a difference
  • Looking to develop your skills and career

Some of what we can offer you:

  • A chance to learn and grow as both a teacher and leader through varied opportunities for professional development informed by the latest in academic research
  • A culture of trust based on the understanding that every teacher is the leader of their own classroom
  • A school that cares about staff well-being and workload so that you have the conditions that enable you to take immense joy from your working life
