We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified infant teacher to join our team of Year 1 class teachers on a full-time fixed-term basis from 1 January 2020 to 31 August 2020 in the first instance. This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, forward-thinking professional to join our highly committed teaching team. We want you to not only be able to teach to a very high standard but also to be innovative and creative in your approach, adapting your teaching style to ‘how children learn best’ and be committed to the school’s flexible and varied approaches to learning, and to its well known high standards.
At Lady Barn, infant form teachers take their class for Maths, English and other subjects apart from those which are taught by specialists (Music, ICT, Science, PE/Games, Foreign Languages, Drama and Art/Design Technology). Since the school offers a broad PE and Games programme, a willingness and ability to contribute in this area will be welcome.
There are up to 22 boys and girls in each class and an assigned class teaching assistant. Each year group has three classes creating a team who work together on planning and other year group/department initiatives. The form teacher will report directly into the relevant Head of Department (Infants) who is also a form teacher.
The school is a particularly supportive, friendly and child-centred place in which to work. Our children work hard, try their best and are well behaved, so are very rewarding to work with. Partnership with parents is active and very positive.
