Job description

Year 5 Class Teacher 

Do you have Primary QTS? Are you a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) looking for your first teaching position, or are you a fully-inducted teacher seeking a new and exciting role to begin when schools are to reopen?

If you answered ‘YES’ to any of the questions above, and you have recent UK-based teaching experience with Key Stage 2 pupils, we want to hear from you!

An Ofsted graded 'GOOD' primary school located in the Darwen area are looking to appoint a passionate and engaging Class Teacher to fill an upcoming vacancy in a Year 5 class from February half-term until December 2021. The children of this happy, lively and welcoming school are at the heart of what they do. The school aim to provide their pupils with a schooling experience that will inspire and encourage ambition, as well as prepare them for the future. They aspire for their pupils to look forward to their future with confidence, and relish in the opportunities that are provided to be creative, to feel safe and valued and to become independent in their education right now. They hope to find an education professional who shares these values and promotes them consistently within their practice.

This new teaching vacancy is ideal if you are looking for work that is rewarding and will enable you to make a difference in the lives of young children.
