Water Meadows Primary School is growing into a full 1 form entry school and we are looking for an enthusiastic and resilient KS2 Teacher to join our dynamic and passionate team in September 2022. Ideally we would like to recruit an ECT and support them on their journey to becoming an outstanding teacher.

We can offer ECTs

  • Support from experienced mentors
  • Frequent opportunities to observe best practice from other teachers within the Trust
  • Clearly focused training schedules

We need someone who is open to new ideas and willing to support our vision to transform the standardised model of direct learning to a model which allows for improved interactions and strengthened relationships that provide our children with opportunities for self-directed learning.

We aim to nurture a community of learners that challenge thinking, where our staff are empowered to take risks and develop their practice to meet the needs of an evolving school system, which is not held back by traditional restrictions and ideologies.

If you are:

  • Open to collaboration with colleagues
  • Willing to develop and nurture strong relationships with children
  • Eager to embrace technology and new skills in your teaching practice
  • Enthusiastic about CPD and training

We would love to hear from you!

  • Free confidential counselling
  • Teachers not expected to create lengthy plans
  • Emphasis on ‘live marking’ and using TAs to lessen the volume of marking outside of lessons
