Job description

Year 5 Class Teacher in Blackburn

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 this academic year?

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!

A large, two-form entry school situated on the outskirts of Blackburn town centre are looking to appoint a passionate and engaging class teacher to fill an upcoming vacancy in a Year 5 class from October half-term until the end of the academic year. 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. You will be responsible for planning, teaching and assessing a class of Year 5 pupils, in accordance with the school's curriculum and the national expectations for the year group. Consequently, recent teaching experience in upper Key Stage 2 is necessary. The proportion of children eligible for support from the pupil premium is more than twice the national average and the number of children who have special educational needs is high. Accordingly, a sensitive attitude towards pupils' individual circumstances is essential, as is a commitment to providing an inclusive learning environment, which caters for the needs of all pupils and enables every child to succeed.
