Lead Teacher - Key Stage 1
Salary: MPS/UPS, plus a TLR (commensurate with experience)
Permanent, full time
Starting January 2020
Are you passionate about teaching in Key Stage 1? Do you want to change young people’s lives?
The Inspiration Trust is at an exciting point in its development. We are investing significantly in our long-term curriculum and teacher development to ensure our pupils continue to have the very best support for the future, particularly in the crucial primary years.
As a lead teacher you will share our belief that all pupils have the right to succeed and have access to the very best education regardless of background or context. A key area for us is reading, and we are particularly seeking someone who can not only improve standards of reading but also develop a lifelong love of reading in our children.
You will teach in Key Stage 1 and work directly with teachers in our schools. The successful candidate will coach and support teachers to enable them to improve their practice, alongside modelling effective delivery in their own practice. We are seeking someone with enough knowledge of Early Years teaching and curriculum to effectively liaise with Early Years teams. This role will have a direct impact in some of our areas of greatest need, across our Trust primaries in Norwich and Great Yarmouth, but with a teaching deployment in one or two schools.
We will expect you to take a leading role, working closely with our central education standards team and the senior leadership teams of each primary school to implement, deliver, and evaluate a high impact early years and key stage 1 curriculum. The successful candidate will understand that high impact teaching comes from a structured and well sequenced curriculum. There will also be opportunities to support the Trust’s school-based Initial Teacher Training programme.
The Trust may offer support with relocation costs for candidates moving from outside the area.
