An excellent Key Stage 2, Year 5 teacher is required for a primary school in the Newcastle area. Due to the sickness of the current Key Stage 2 primary teacher, the school are eagerly seeking a teacher as soon as possible to work in their Year 5 class. A strong background in numeracy would be useful, although not essential.
The school is located in an area of significant social and economic disadvantage, with high percentages of FSM’s and children on School Action or School Action Plus. Experience of working in primary schools in such areas is therefore highly desirable, to ensure the smooth transition between the present and future class teacher.
The primary school’s Headteacher has an inclusive and supportive ethos, and believes strongly in a good team working mentality in the school. There is a strong and effective discipline policy in place, and therefore visitors often comment on the good behaviour of children.
This Key Stage 2 position is to start immediately and is expected to be on going for a significant period of time.
