Moorside Primary School is looking to recruit a dedicated, experienced class teacher to join our staff team from 1st September 2021. The post is a permanent appointment and the successful candidate will teach in one of our twelve Key Stage 2 classes. As a three-form entry primary school, you will be well-supported by an established year group team.

Our school is a large, diverse community that prides itself on its very high standards, both in terms of academic attainment and progress and also behaviour and pastoral care. Our most recent Ofsted report graded our behaviour and safety as outstanding and we pride ourselves on providing a nurturing and caring environment in which to learn.

It is an ideal time to be joining us, as school life begins to return to normal and whilst we continually review our provision to meet the needs of our children in our school. Our curriculum is centred on a thematic, topic-based approach with enquiry and outdoor and adventure learning being pivotal in its delivery. This post will include subject leadership, either as part of a core-subject leadership team, or as a foundation subject leader; you should highlight your curriculum strengths as part of your application and demonstrate the impact you have had.

We would like to hear from prospective candidates who meet all the essential selection criteria. Specific details about the post are in the attached welcome letter and the criteria for selection are outlined in the person specification.

Please note CVs are not accepted, to apply for this vacancy you need to complete the application form attached.
