Job description

Reception Teacher

Nelson based Catholic School

September 2020 – July 2021 (full years contract)

GBP135+ per day

A graded ‘GOOD’ Catholic School located in the Nelson area of East Lancashire has approached Teaching Personnel in order to source a Reception teacher to work full time from September 2020 until July 2021. The school have approached Teaching Personnel as we hold a Service Level Agreement with Catholic Schools under the Salford Diocese. The permanent Reception class teacher is ‘taking a leave of absence’ and the school have decided to implement a long term plan in order to gain the consistency with the children in the class. The cover role will be to start in September and will run full time for a minimum of ten months. The Business Manager in School has noted that the role will potentially last longer so the appointment could be considered more longer term.

With this in mind, the Head teacher would like to see the CVs of any applying teachers by 19th June. The CV must state your recent experience working in a Reception class and also state how you have improved standards in school. The Head teacher is then keen to meet the shortlisted CVs with the hope of appointing by the end of June, with proposed handover days with the current teacher. This would be expected to be done using social distance measures. The school are open to all candidates applying, from NQT’s to UPS Teachers.

The School does fall under the Salford Diocese and so it is important that you are able to respect and uphold the Catholic Faith in school. The school is situated in a deprived area of East Lancashire and the children tend to arrive from socially deprived backgrounds; with this, they tend to fall behind expected national expectations. The Head is very supportive and welcoming and will set up a number of meetings with the English and Maths Lead teachers in school in order to plan effectively. The school use Jolly Phonics and Letters and Sounds as there school Phonics scheme and it is therefore important that you have experience working alongside these.
