PPA Class Teacher 


£130 - £145 per day  PAYE

September – July 2022

Salary is dependent on experience, training, or qualifications. The minimum experience, training or qualifications required for this position is holding QTS and recent teaching experience across primary.   

The role 

Smart Teachers are recruiting for a full time, PPA teacher to help provide relief for teachers who require time to plan lessons. The PPA teacher will be required to cover lessons across Early Years up until Year 6 and therefore will have to feel comfortable delivering lessons to these year groups. The PPA teacher will be working in a one-form entry school in Islington.  This role is scheduled to start in September 2021 and will continue for the whole academic year. This would be a fabulous opportunity for an NQT, who wishes to strengthen their behaviour management as well as deliver lessons that have already been planned before completing their NQT year. Alternatively, this role would be ideal for an experienced teacher who wishes to have a break from planning and simply wish to enjoy delivering lessons to a lovely bunch of students. The children, on the whole are well behaved, but strong behavioural management skills are ideal to help manage the novelty of having a new PPA teacher within the school. 

The school 

The school has been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and we have received extremely positive feedback from staff who have worked there before. The feedback is usually related to the enthusiasm and positive behaviour of the students as well as the friendly team who work closely together to deliver a fruitful education that can help enthuse their pupils. Each pupil that is on an EHCP will have a 1:1 TA, allowing you to focus entirely on the delivery of lessons. There are many opportunities to progress within the school with the regular CPD courses, whereby the leadership wish to better each member of staff which will ultimately transfer onto the pupils’ education.  The suitable PPA teacher will be surrounded by great facilities, a fun and positive team, as well as extensive grounds. The school is surrounded by various transport links.
