Job description

EYFS/Reception Teacher -Required in Darwen

Recent experience required in an EYFS Setting or with the lower year groups

Qualified Teacher Status is a necessity

Good recent references required to register with Teaching Personnel

A reputable Primary School located on the outskirts of Darwen have approached Teaching Personnel in order to source and supply a Reception Class Teacher to cover maternity leave in school. The Head teacher has specifically approached the agency though in order to supply a teacher to start from 22nd April. There will be the opportunity for transition work before the Easter break with the current teacher. The Head teacher is preferably looking for someone who has recent experience delivering the EYFS Curriculum. Due to the nature of the children who arrive in school, the Head teacher is keen to meet the candidates and gain a better understanding of their experiences. Candidates must have good experiences working alongside children with challenging behaviour and also be able to differentiate to meet individual and complex needs.

The school is currently graded as GOOD by Ofsted and there is another teacher who can assist with the planning and assessment aspect of the role in the interim. The children have a good routine already and the class is supported by a well experienced Level 3 TA. Additionally there is another Teaching Assistant who works alongside a child with special educational needs in the class and so you will be expected to tailor planning for this support.

The Head teacher and SLT in school are very accommodating to new and temporary staff, in the past we have had teachers who have enjoyed their experience in school and also commented on the amount of support they received in school. Ofsted also confirmed this in a recent inspection report, clarifying by saying the Head teacher is a warm hearted and approachable person and an inspiring leader. The children arrive in school working in line with age related levels and so there is a huge emphasis on making sure the children progress, particularly with social and communication needs. The school do offer a wide Curriculum in the EYFS and there are different areas of learning which are focused on in the working week. The children will have access to a wide variety of activities which will be planned by the successful candidate, with planning that will show progression.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced or Newly Qualified Teacher. The school do have capacity to support NQT induction. This role will not be available for long so it is important that the applying candidates send through updated CVs ASAP and have references and DBS information readily available.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
