Thank you for expressing an interest in this exciting post.
Orchard Primary Academy is a unique and vibrant school where staff are fully committed to changing the fortunes for the children and families that it serves. The Academy, under the guidance of South Pennine Academies, has been on a journey of improvement in the last 3 years and continues to strive for excellence in all areas. Our children are fantastic. They are curious, willing and have taken challenges that have been put in front of them head-on. Our staff are committed and passionate practitioners who truly want the best for each child.
Orchard Primary Academy serves a community that has had and still has its challenges. Leaders work tirelessly to not only educate children, but to keep them safe, ensure they are in school regularly and to make sure they are ready to learn. Chickenley is a close-knit community and the school is at the heart of it.
We are committed to not only providing our children with a high-quality academic curriculum, but also a carefully planned enrichment curriculum. We place a huge emphasis on physical activity, sport and competition and love to teach our children outdoors through our forest school programme and active learning sessions. Trips and enrichment are a key part of our approach to help children understand the world outside of the community. All children, in all classes attend regular trips which are linked to their curriculum and we have a range of visitors who come in and share their knowledge, experiences or provide an ‘out-of-this-world’ experience.
We are looking for a classroom teacher who is:
• An excellent classroom practitioner;
• Committed to raising standards by being passionate about enabling every child to fulfil their potential;
• Willing to be fully involved in the life of the school;
• Committed to our local community;
• Excellent at building good working relationships with children, parents, staff and governors;
• Committed to overcoming barriers for all learners;
The Governors, South Pennine Academies and Academy leaders work together to ensure Orchard Primary Academy provides the very best educational success for our children. All stakeholders are aware of the challenges that Academy faces on a daily basis and will not stop in their pursuit to ensure Orchard becomes a good school that we can all be proud to say we are a part of.
If you think that you are still right for the job then we look forward to receiving your application. If you wish to discuss the job in more detail then please do not hesitate to contact the Principal, Matthew Carbutt, to arrange a visit.
