Salary: MPS/UPS Hours: Full Time
Contracts – Permanent

Required for January 2022

We are seeking to appoint two enthusiastic and highly motivated classroom teachers with high expectations of pupils and themselves to join our friendly, hard-working staff team.

Post 1: We want our new colleague to lead our English curriculum across the school – from Nursery to Year 6. The ideal candidate will be able to show their successful leadership of a subject within the primary curriculum and to demonstrate both a love of English, especially reading, and a high competency in spoken and written English. They will be able to demonstrate a love, enthusiasm and ability for the teaching of English and be ready to lead, by example, to deliver high quality teaching and learning of the English curriculum across our school

Post 2. Our second post is available to a wider range of candidates, and we would welcome applications from Early Career Teachers who have shown strong potential and completed a successful final teaching practice and NQTs who have completed some of their NQT year prior to September 2021. Applications from experienced teachers are also very much welcomed.

We can offer you:

• A welcoming, caring school where everyone is valued
• Friendly, well behaved, enthusiastic pupils
• Dedicated and motivated colleagues who strongly believe in teamwork and support each other fully
• Access to high quality CPD opportunities both within our trust and from external providers
• A school and trust that are creative, innovative and exciting places to work
• The opportunity to be part of an outstanding school, working alongside outstanding practitioners in a growing multi-academy trust

As part of Cleves Cross Learning Trust, we offer development opportunities to work with other schools and colleagues on a wider stage which is part of our Trust’s commitment to ongoing educational development.

In return, we are looking for someone who is:

• An enthusiastic and resourceful practitioner who will ensure that our children get the best possible education, enjoy every minute of their time at school and make excellent progress

• A strong, reflective teacher who is highly motivated about teaching, committed to life-long learning and is, or has the potential to become, an outstanding practitioner

• A team player with good communication and interpersonal skills who can bring their own values and commitment to our team
