Closing date:

Brookwood Primary SchoolSurrey

Date posted:
Start date: 1st September 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £24,018 to £34,250 FTE
Contract term: Fixed Term
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We have an exciting teaching opportunity for a talented Reception teacher! 

Come and join the Brookwood team which works hard, supports each other brilliantly and provides outstanding opportunities for our children who are at the heart of everything we do.

We have an unexpected last-minute vacancy for a Reception teacher.  Working alongside two experienced teachers in Year 1 and Year 2, this vacancy would be ideal for an NQT, but equally adaptable for someone looking to gain middle leadership experience.  We anticipate a class of around 25 children with TA support throughout the week. 

As the deadline for resignations is imminent, you are encouraged to phone the school in the first instance. Your interview will take place on Friday 25th May.

Brookwood is a Good school (Ofsted Nov15) and we are striding on to even better things – continuing to develop our broader curriculum, embedding our Forest School programme and making progress even better for every child in school.

As a member of the Bourne Education Trust (BET), we are building ever closer working relationships with the other BET schools – sharing practice and benefiting from being part of this expanding and successful Trust.

As an NQT, you would join our NQT induction programme, supported by all staff, but primarily our two Assistant Headteachers. You would be part of a cohort of NQTs working across BET, alongside at least one colleague from Brookwood. Our NQTs join the highly acclaimed Salesian Teaching School Alliance NQT programme as the bridge between Initial Teacher Training and a successful teaching career.

If you can say yes to everything on the list below, then we’d love to hear from you:

•An enthusiastic, highly motivated teacher

•A great teacher who loves their job

•Keen to share knowledge, skills and talents with colleagues

•A good team player who sees the benefits of collaborative working

•A teacher committed to inclusive education

•A commitment to personal development

We offer:

•A supportive, friendly, inclusive school with a huge heart and passion for achieving the best for everyone

•A great staff who love working at Brookwood and who help and support each other

•A well-developed NQT induction programme joining other BET NQTs on the Salesian Teaching School Alliance NQT programme

•Opportunities and encouragement to develop leadership skills and to progress in your career

•High quality joint professional development within school and beyond

•Links into the broader network of Bourne Education Trust schools
