Class Teacher Key Stage 2

Salary Range: £26,139 - £36,906 (M1 – M6)
Do you want to make a difference to the lives of our children?
Our children would like a Class Teacher who is “a really good teacher”, who “knows how to help us to learn well” and who is “fun, funny but serious when needs to be”. If you are also hard-working, dynamic and motivated, we would love to hear from you.
St Edward’s is a large multicultural Church of England Voluntary Aided school situated just a ten minute walk from the town centre of Romford with its excellent transport links. We are proud of our 300 year history but are also a friendly, forward-thinking school.
Although we are a large school, governors, staff, pupils and parents all work closely together which creates a friendly, family atmosphere. The children enjoy a wide variety of extra-curriculum activities and sports are a particular strength of the school.
We are looking for an outstanding teacher, with a good sense of humour, who can inspire pupils and deliver lessons which will enrich pupils’ learning and challenge their thinking. We are a three form entry school and you will, therefore, be able to plan together within your year group, supported by a Year Team Leader. We have a strong established management structure and this post offers excellent CPD opportunities.
We would like to appoint someone who:
- is supportive of our Christian values and ethos;
- is hardworking, skilled and able to motivate children;
- has a sound knowledge of the Key Stage 2 primary phase;
- enjoys teaching stimulation, challenging and enriching lessons;
- has high expectations of pupils.
You will like working with us if you enjoy:
- a caring family culture;
- working with supportive staff, parents and governors;
- helping children to realise their full potential.
