Overview

Do you enjoy working with children? Do you have the skills to support their learning and development? Have you got a ‘can-do’ approach and outlook? At Green Ridge Primary Academy, we are looking for a Learning Lead to oversee the provision within our two/three-year-old class, Little Berries. You will work as part of our staff team within Early Years to support children in their learning and development, and take a lead role in deploying staff within your class. We are looking for someone who is up for getting stuck in to all aspects of 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
