KS1/KS2 Teacher Required for September 2016

Pay Scale: MPS

We are looking for someone who is passionate about improving outcomes for children of all abilities.  Recruitment incentives will be considered, to secure the best teacher for our team.  Come and join us as we move to full three-form entry!

This is a perfect opportunity for newly qualified teachers - we offer a fantastic environment in which to begin your teaching career and are committed to providing tailored programmes of support and excellent teaching opportunities for our NQTs. 

Teachers who complete their NQT year with us always comment on the warm welcome and high level of support that they receive and rapidly develop into consistently outstanding practitioners.

We offer two full induction days and also the opportunity to join us for several days in the summer term so that teachers can work with their new class, plan with their year group team and feel confident and fully prepared for September.

Situated in the Royal Borough of Kingston-Upon-Thames, our school is a vibrant, culturally and socially diverse community school for 2 – 11 year old pupils.  We offer happy and enthusiastic children who love learning, excellent parental support, skilled and supportive staff and a great team ethos!

Judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted:

  • Good leadership and management have raised attainment.
  • Pupils are reaching or exceeding standards found in most schools.
  • An imaginative curriculum provides rich practical experiences that broaden horizons.
  • Pupils behave well and show high levels of respect. There is a buoyant and confident atmosphere in and around school.

We ensure excellent and tailored ongoing support (for example, through mentoring, team-teaching, paired observations, participation in learning walks, discussion and feedback sessions, high quality and comprehensive continuing professional development and training with external consultants) and are   committed to supporting our staff in their individual career development choices (providing opportunities for our future leaders to use and develop their leadership and management skills through subject leadership and project management of school improvement areas).

The successful candidate will have to meet the requirements of the person specification and will be subject to pre-employment checks including a health check, an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references. Please see our website for our policies on Safer Recruitment, Safeguarding and Child Protection.
