Class Teacher Vacancy
We are looking for an experienced teacher, not an NQT. You are likely to have completed your NQT year ready for a new post as you settle into your second year of teaching. We are ideally placed to support your continued career development. So, come and join our teaching team, ready for September 2019. At Temple Meadow there is so much good and innovative practice happening; that you really need to visit us, to see if this post is the one for you. We really do want the right person, someone who can fit into our school seamlessly. I’m open to a KS1 or KS2 experienced teacher as clearly the right person will fit appropriately into the September teaching model.
We are a two-form entry Primary School, judged Good at by Ofsted. Our unique characteristics as a school are our commitment to Irresistible Learning, which puts a creative curriculum at the heart of learning. All around our lovely school, you will see colour and engaging displays - we don’t do beige! We have embedded Singapore Maths across the school. We have a culture of collaborative learning. If we can make learning fun, then we always do. Our assessment systems are our school strength. We have high-quality CPD. Each phase is led by an AHT and we will ensure that your induction into our learning culture is supportive and immersive.
We are extremely proud of our safeguarding and day to day practice around our school, keeping children safe; and working with families. You will really feel that what you do, on a daily basis is highly positive, and makes a difference to children’s lives. We so want the ‘right’ person. We are therefore seeking, first and foremost, a committed and talented teacher who is able to deliver consistently 'good' lessons to our pupils. Secondly, we are looking for someone who wants to grow their career with us as we are a school with plenty of opportunities to advance and develop your career. We grow outstanding teachers by our imaginative and innovative approach to curriculum development.
You will need to have completed your NQT year. You need a proven record of raising standards within a primary setting (not suitable for a secondary teacher). Ideally, you will have experience of urban Local Authorities such as Sandwell and an understanding of the range of diverse needs that affect school life.
We really are so proud of our school; we offer a vibrant and stimulating learning environment. Added to that we really do have the most fantastic pupils with excellent behaviour and attitude to learning. As a staff team we are always looking at ways to support work life balance. Innovation is a disease at Temple Meadow – we just can’t stop improving all areas of school life!
Part of the interview process will involve a teaching task, as this is key to selecting an effective, caring professional that will fit into life at Temple Meadow.
We encourage visits to the school and I have set aside some slots for visits; so do please contact the school office to arrange a visit.
Application packs are available from and returnable to the school office. Application packs can also be downloaded from the Local Authority website. All completed applications must be returned either by post or delivered directly to the school office. Interested applicants can contact the school on 01384 569021.
Closing Date: Monday 8th April at 1500
Short listing date: Tuesday 9th April
Interviews: Thursday 11th April at 0900
Slots to visit the school are available upon request. We always aim to accommodate a visit as we know how busy school lives are.
Temple Meadow is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable groups including children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS clearance is therefore required for this role.
