The role

Would you like to join a team of hard-working, inspiring and forward-thinking staff?  Then look no further!  At Kettering Buccleuch Academy, we are passionate about shaping the lives of our pupils; we all thoroughly enjoy what we do and are excited to welcome another colleague to the KBA family.  As a school, we have gone from strength to strength and we are looking for the right person to join us on our journey to good.  As an all through academy, we have state of the art facilities and a truly unique environment to work in.

We have worked hard as a team to quickly improve the standards for our children.  We believe in an enriching curriculum and ensuring that the children understand and harness their capabilities.  As a school, we are very positive, we enjoy what we do and we work as a team.  Staff well-being is very important to us and we have many initiatives to ensure that our staff are well looked after.

The successful applicant will be required to join the KS2 team primarily working in year 4.  Your role will be to support children either in small groups or on a one to one basis.  You will be required to support children who have fallen behind their peers or need support to push them further using data for planning and creating bespoke work that is tailor made to that child.  The role will mainly be with small groups, however there may be occasions where whole class teaching is required.

United Learning

Kettering Buccleuch Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
