We are looking to recruit three Cover Teachers into our Primary School to start in January 2020. These roles will cover all age groups, EYFS to Year 6. We are ideally seeking applicants that offer a specific specialism and passion in an area such as PE, Art, MFL or Computing. You will spend approximately half the week teaching during teacher PPA slots. You will be required to work with Year Leaders to plan appropriate lessons, give feedback on these subjects and mark where required. As a three form entry school these sessions will run as a carousel so that the staff are released to have joint planning time. As part of this role you will be responsible for running an after school club up to two nights per week. The remainder of your week will be spent covering middle leader and senior leader management time. You will have a weekly timetable. 

These positions are ideally suited to prospective future teachers, looking to gain experience before undertaking further training to become qualified teachers. As part of the United Learning Trust there are internal training schemes that may be appropriate to support potential candidates in becoming fully qualified teachers in the future. We are ideally looking for candidates with appropriate degree level qualifications to match any specialisms they may be able to offer.

We are looking to appoint three staff with the following attributes:

• highly motivated to support children with special needs to make progress and fulfil their potential. 

• experience of classroom support.

• a wider interest in working with children, young people and their parents/carers both inside and outside the classroom.

• the ability to contribute positively to the overall programme of learning for each student to ensure progression – pupil outcomes are a key focus.

• willing to plan, deliver and assess high quality lessons that inspire wonder and intellectual curiosity.

• Enjoys being part of a hard working and supportive staff team. 

You should have: 

• GCSE Maths and English grade C or above

• a high degree of initiative and sound judgement when working with children and young people 

• a focus on learning outcomes for pupils and pupil progression

You may have:

• A teaching qualification.

• A degree in a relevant subject area.

• Additional qualifications that make you suitable for this role.

• Teaching experience in a primary school.
