Primary - Classroom Teacher

Roseacre Primary AcademyBlackpool

Roseacre Primary Academy is looking to appoint a committed, highly skilled class teacher to teach a KS1 or KS2 class on a permanent contract. The post will commence on 1st September 2021. Applications from NQTs, RQTs and experienced teachers are welcome. 

Roseacre is a three form entry Primary Academy and Nursery in South Shore, Blackpool. The school became proud members of the  Achievement through Collaboration Trust, in December 2018 which has resulted in a significant financial input into resources and has enhanced career pathways. 

Being larger than average, the school is organised in three phases.  All phases are led by a designated Assistant Headteacher. Rated as ‘good’ at our last Ofsted inspection (April 2018), Governors and staff work together to improve outcomes for Roseacre children and strive for “outstanding”.  We enjoy an excellent relationship with our supportive parents and our intake for September 2021 is fully subscribed - 90 children will enter our reception.

Governors and staff are inordinately proud of Roseacre’s reputation, its standing in the community it serves and the children who attend. Roseacre is a special place for colleagues and children to learn. 

We are looking to appoint a candidate who advocates that children’s learning is the heartbeat of Roseacre. We are looking for an individual who demonstrates a true desire to work at our school and be part of this exceptional team. 

In particular we are looking for someone who:

  • Is determined and resilient with high expectations of themselves and others.
  • Understands how children learn and develop, and provides exciting, rich opportunities in which they will thrive.
  • Will ensure excellence and enjoyment for all our children.
  • Is able to meet deadlines and manage time effectively.
  • Is flexible and has a good sense of humour.
  • Wants the best for every child and works tirelessly to achieve this.

In return we can offer:

  • Polite, hard-working children who enjoy coming to school.
  • A dedicated and extremely supportive team of professionals who strive for excellence in everything they do. 
  • Increasingly well-resourced facilities.
  • High quality CPD including access to leadership training programmes.
  • Close working relationships with external partners and collaborative networks.

Roseacre Primary Academy and Nursery has an inclusive approach and, as such, we need someone who is caring, approachable and who can bring out the best in our children, whilst maintaining high expectations. Enthusiasm, energy and a sense of humour are a must!
