Class Teacher – Early Years

At the brand new Lower Farm Academy, Nuneaton

Overview

Are you a Teacher who believes in learning without limits? Do you want the opportunity to be part of a unique team and set-up a brand new academy? Are you passionate that all children deserve the very best learning opportunities and want to build a brighter future for our pupils? If so, we would love to hear from you!

At Lower Farm Academy, we are looking for an excellent practitioner to be our first Early Years Class Teacher. We are looking for an individual who is up for a challenge and has experience in providing exceptional learning opportunities for their pupils. There will be massive opportunities to develop and shape an outstanding Early Years provision as the school grows to a Two Form entry school with a 30 place nursery over the coming years.

About us

Lower Farm Academy is a new primary academy in Nuneaton and is part of REAch2 Academy Trust. We will be a school which cultivates strong cultural, social and moral values in line with the REAch2 touchstones so that the school is at the heart of the new community it serves. We will offer an exciting and innovative curriculum with a wide range of unique learning experiences. A talented and well-qualified workforce will engage all learners in reaching the highest standards. High aspirations and expectations will encompass the life of the school and support the development of all our children with high self-esteem, self-discipline and strong community spirit.

The academy is now looking to appoint permanent staff to inspire our community and be an integral part of the unique opportunity to build and grow the school from its infancy. There is no doubt that setting up the academy from the very start will take vision, dedication and hard-work, but being part of this exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to help shape the academy over the next few years.

About the role

At Lower Farm, we pride ourselves on the high expectations we place on the academic achievements and behaviour of all children, as well as the diverse, engaging and creative curriculum which underpins all that we do.  Lower Farm 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 Lower Farm 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. Lower Farm 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. We do not ‘label’ children or place a ceiling on their ability. Instead, we will 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 an excellent classroom practitioner within Early Years who can help shape the provision and grow the school on the coming years. You will be part of a unique journey to help create a state of the art school at the heart of the community as well as being part of the largest primary only Multi-Academy Trust in the country.

 

The successful candidate will have:

  • The motivation to achieve the very best for the children in our care and a relentless pursuit of excellence.
  • Excellent inter-personal skills as a highly effective classroom practitioner.
  • 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
