Overview

Are you teacher who believes in learning without limits? Do you want the opportunity to be part of a unique team to set-up a brand new academy from scratch? Are you passionate that all children deserve the very best learning opportunities? If so, we would love to hear from you! At Green Ridge Primary Academy we are looking for Class Teachers for our Early Years, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two classes. We are looking for teachers who are up for a challenge and want to get stuck in with all aspects of our academy life!

About us

Green Ridge Academy is a new primary school built on Berryfields, which opened in September 2017 in temporary accommodation on the site of the permanent building. The academy currently has three classes, comprising of two Reception classes and a mixed-aged Key Stage One class. The permanent school building is due to open for September 2018. The school will then grow year-on-year with a Nursery, taking children from aged 2-11. The school will initially have a capacity for over 450 children, but is being built with the additional capacity to extend to a three-form entry school with just over 650 children.

The academy is now looking to appoint permanent staff to open the academy in its brand-new building, joining the existing staff who helped set-up the school this year, being part of the unique opportunity to build and grow the school from its infancy. There is no doubt about it, setting up the academy from scratch will take vision, dedication and hard-work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to see the academy take shape over the next few years. To see more information about the school, including design plans of the school, please visit our website http://www.greenridgeacademy.co.uk

About the role

All of the Class Teachers at Green Ridge will be line-managed by their Phase Leader/Head of Learning for their Key Stage. Class Teachers are responsible for the day-to-day teaching and learning provision for all children in their class, including those with Special Educational Needs, English as an Additional Language, those more-able learners and those eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant. You will receive coaching and mentoring from experienced leaders in the academy to ensure that you are supported in all aspects of what you do.

We welcome applications from experienced teachers as well as those Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs). All teachers will receive 10% Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) time each week, in addition to release time for NQTs or Subject Leadership. For more experienced teachers, or those looking to fast-track perhaps in their second or third year of teaching, we have a range of different leadership opportunities available where you could lead on various subjects or areas of the school. Whatever your teaching background, we would love to hear from you!

At Green Ridge, we rightly pride ourselves on the high expectations we place on the academic achievements and behaviour of all children, whatever their need, as well as a broad, diverse and engaging creative curriculum which underpins all that we do.  Green Ridge is an inclusive setting, valuing all children’s achievements, ensuring that each child is given every opportunity to meet their full potential.  There is no doubt that Green Ridge is an exciting place to be – for children, staff, parents and the local community!

As a Class Teacher, you will be passionate about ensuring the best outcomes for children and giving them every opportunity to succeed, whatever their barriers may be.  Green Ridge is an academy where every child is respected and treated as an individual, with no limits placed on their learning – just opportunities to continually improve with a growth Mindset approach.  We do not ‘label’ children or group them by perceived ‘ability’; we will instead give all children equal opportunities to challenge themselves through the range of tasks and activities presented to them – empowering children to take ownership and responsibility for their own learning.

What we’re looking for:

We are looking for a good and outstanding classroom practitioners within the Early Years, Key Stage One and/or Key Stage Two. Year groups can be determined upon successful appointment of the right candidate, but we do ask that staff who apply are flexible in where they teach, particularly as the academy grows. We want staff who want to try something different and not be compound to one year-group for their teaching lives!

The academy is also looking to appoint a SENCo for September 2018, and for particular candidates with strengths or interests in the area of SEND, then the Class Teacher role could be combined with the SENCo responsibilities, with additional payment and release time for this. The academy is also willing to support and fund a new SENCo through their NASENCo qualification under the guidance of the experienced Headteacher in this area. This could be an exciting opportunity to shape the provision of SEND in a brand-new academy, giving a platform for senior leadership and beyond. More information about this can be given as necessary. The successful candidate will have: – The motivation to achieve the very best for the children in our care and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence  – Excellent inter-personal – Experience as an effective good and outstanding classroom teacher – Excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour

– Good organisational skills

– Creativity which drives all aspects of teaching and learning. In return we can offer: – A firm commitment to you and your professional development – Friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and Governors  – A growing learning community  – Encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference

-Coaching and mentoring from the academy’s Senior Leadership Team

-Fantastic trust-wide CPD opportunities

-Vast opportunities for career progression
