A lovely primary school in Barnet/Hertfordshire is seeking a Year 5 teacher to join their team from September.

  • Two-form entry school
  • Year 5 class
  • Great opportunity in a lovely school

The school:

The school is two-form entry, based in an area which borders London, so has the benefit of cheaper accommodation if you choose to live close by, whilst still only being 25 minutes from central London on the reliable and frequent rail service. It is also close enough to drive from London and the Head will consider additional increments to cover travel costs.

They are led by an inspiring Headteacher who has taken the school from “requires improvement” to “good” in all areas and they are hoping to have improved further when they are next inspected by Ofsted. The Head is passionate about improving the school further still and has a brilliant team working with her to achieve this. There is a very busy, creative feel to the school.

The school has a large playing field and lovely playground and is well-resourced throughout.

The Role:

The vacancy is for a Year 5 teacher to start in September for the whole academic year. The class is described as “delightful” and respond well to enthusiastic, positive teachers who will deliver exciting lessons, whenever possible. They are a very creative class. There are three children in the class with various levels of Autism and these pupils take time to deal with change but are well-supported by full-time teaching assistants.

You will be planning and preparing lessons and activities each week with the parallel class teacher, which will allow you to share and develop ideas.

Suitable Applicants:

You will be a qualified teacher who is looking to join a great team and have a firm commitment to helping children to achieve their full potential.

The school requires a teacher who can definitely commit until July 2020, in order to see the children through the academic year. Outstanding newly qualified teachers (NQT) may be considered.

You will be creative, engaging and with a passion for teaching and although behaviour in the class is good, the children respond well to a teacher with good classroom management skills who will challenge them academically. Good teamwork and organisational skills are a must.

If you meet all of the above criteria and are looking to join a great team, please contact me as soon as possible.

If this role is not quite right you at the moment, but you know of a suitably qualified and experienced friend/colleague, please let us know as we offer a £250 referral fee for candidates who successfully work for us. Please call for more information.
