Primary Teacher

Permanent
Pay Scale – MPS/UPS
Required for 1 September 2017

We require outstanding primary teachers to join our federation from September 2017 and teach in Year 5 or 6 on our lower school site – we would welcome applications from NQT’s, for whom we have a comprehensive induction and bespoke CPD programme, or from experienced teachers.

The pupils and staff are looking for a motivated, enthusiastic individual who wants to work as part of a team to drive learning forward. We require someone who strives to ensure all our children can read and write and articulate themselves fluently and confidently.

Unlike many middle schools, our curriculum model in years 5 and 6 sees one primary teacher take ownership of their own class for the vast majority of subjects, allowing strong bonds to be created and a full understanding of each child’s strengths and areas for development to be nurtured.

Unlike many primary schools, we have fully equipped and dedicated science laboratories, a Design Technology workshop, Food kitchen, Art studio, ICT suite and enviable PE facilities that our students take advantage of to enhance their learning.

The school is part of a hard federation with a small, rural first school – this is an exciting time to join the federation as we continue our journey towards excellence. Staff and governors are fully committed to promoting equal opportunity and academic excellence for all students.

You will:

  • Understand methods of raising standards in reading, writing and maths
  • Be able to accelerate progress and meet national standards as a minimum
  • Have a good knowledge and understanding of the primary curriculum
  • Be a positive role model
  • Have high expectations of yourself and others
  • Be someone with a ‘can do’ attitude
  • Be passionate about improving the life chances of our students 

We can offer you:

  • Excellent opportunities for professional development
  • A well-resourced curriculum
  • Hardworking and well behaved pupils who are willing to learn
  • Dedicated PPA time
  • A friendly and supportive working environment with a dedicated staff team

Should you wish to informally discuss this position further or would like to visit the college, please contact Mrs Carole Hutchinson (01665 710636, Ext 204, chutchinson01@jcsc.co.uk) to arrange.

Completed applications should be submitted to Carole Hutchinson, Assistant to the Executive Headteacher, at James Calvert Spence College, Acklington Road, Amble, Northumberland NE65 0ND. (chutchinson01@jcsc.co.uk).

If you wish to find out more about our school, or to arrange a visit or an informal chat about the post, please contact Carole Hutchinson.
