Primary Teacher and Head of Year - Key Stage 1
An exciting opportunity to join a pioneering school in north London.
Ark John Keats Academy aims to provide pupils from Nursery to 6th Form with a highly effective and enjoyable education. Our approach is underpinned by our six pillars:
A Mastery Curriculum
High Quality Teaching
Raising Aspirations & Enrichment
Developing Education Leaders
This is an exciting stage in the academy’s development as we continue to grow towards full capacity. We currently have pupils from Nursery to Year 5 and Years 7 to 11.
The academy staff, pupils and parents are incredibly aligned, committed and passionate about our school. We have been graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted and pupils make rapid progress in our calm, purposeful and happy environment.
This post offers successful candidates the opportunity to play a leading role in developing our Key Stage 1 provision; providing first class teaching for pupils and excellent leadership for staff. It is a wonderful opportunity to be a member of a school that is breaking the mould by giving pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds a type and standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools. It is a post that will require intelligence, vision, commitment and the consistent role modelling of best practice for staff and pupils.
Our ideal candidate will be an outstanding teacher with at least two years of teaching experience.
We will expect you to work hard; show commitment at all times to our vision; lead by example and achieve our aims. In return you will work with a team that will provide vision and direction and great practical and moral support. You will work in an environment where your opinions are sought and welcomed and a culture in which staff feel appreciated and excited by the journey ahead of us.
Opportunities like this are few and far between in education and we would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm. We are very happy to talk about the post informally if you require more information.
