Harris Academy Benson is a new Primary Academy for local children. Our belief is that children thrive when they are consistently happy and safe at school. Whatever a child’s background or starting point, we want to make sure that they finish Year 6 with the academic skills, social skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. Every lesson at our school is creative and there is plenty of time for children to think, to play, to discover and wonder.

We require a Class Teacher who is outstanding or has potential to be outstanding to join our hardworking, motivated, highly successful and committed team.

If you feel passionately about teaching and learning and are you prepared to strive to enable every pupil to achieve their potential, this role could be for you.

What we are looking for:

  • A teacher who will model and disseminate high quality teaching pedagogy and practice to secure consistently good or outstanding teaching and learning for our children
  • A commitment to on-going professional development
  • Someone who will maintain a dynamic and inspiring learning environment
  • A person who is innovative, highly motivated and eager to take a lead
  • Good interpersonal skills and the ability to work well as part of a team

For NQTs, we provide our highly successful Harris Federation NQT programme where you will train alongside other NQTs from across the Federation. This enables aspiring teachers to support and learn from each other, in the true collaborative spirit of Harris. There is a structure of support and challenge with customised professional learning, and every NQT has a professional mentor.

Why work at Harris Primary Academy Benson?

  • A supportive team of enthusiastic colleagues
  • A relaxed and comfortable school, where pupils know that good behaviour is expected of them
  • Generous Harris benefits and rewards package

The Academy works within the wider Harris Federation of Schools, a supportive and highly successful group of Academies all based in and around London. Each Academy operates autonomously within the Federation but all Harris Academies collaborate closely in sharing school improvement strategies and in supporting one another.
