These vacancies would be suitable for Primary Teachers who would relish the opportunity to forge mutually beneficial relationships with a cluster of schools on a part/ full-time basis. These schools promote parental involvement and an “open door policy” to enable their pupils to fulfil their ambitions. They also want to nurture their pupils to become well-rounded individuals in society and this is reflected in their Eco School Awards and Healthy Schools Initiatives. The successful candidate would ideally have experience in working in an Eco School or worked towards securing Eco School Status /Forest Schools Level One Certificate. The schools in the area are keen to exploit cross-curricular opportunities in Information Computer Technology (ICT) wherever possible and this is illustrated in their BECTA Quality Mark and the extensive resources provided in the schools. The successful primary supply teachers must be confident in using Interactive Whiteboards in the classroom setting as there is one in every room.

If you are passionate about teaching Key Stage Two (KS2) and an excellent classroom practitioner with a broad range of behaviour management strategies we look forward to hearing from you.
