Year 5 class teacher job

M1 - M6
Junior school

Sussex Teachers are working with a junior school in Eastbourne to find a Year 3 class teacher. This role is to begin in Jaunary and will run until the end of the academic year. The school have said they would be open to either a full time teacher or 2 part time job share teachers.

This three-form junior school and is part of a federation with a local Infant School. The school aims to provide an enriched and exciting curriculum that encourages pupils to become independent and resilient with a love of learning that will stay with them for life. The school building is modern, with large classrooms, a school hall and multipurpose music / dance room as well as a library and a purpose-built food technology and nurture area. Pupils benefit from extensive grounds which are already used well for playtimes and PE and the school have begun to develop a forest school and nature area for outside lessons.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and creative teacher (or teachers) to join the school from the end of November taking on class teaching responsibility for a group of 29 pupils. The school are looking for a teacher(s) with lots of energy and enthusiasm, with high expectations for their students and a commitment to raising standards. You should hold good communication and team working skills and be able to confidently work alongside your job share partner to produce lessons from the schools broad and balanced curriculum. If you are available for only part time work please still apply, as we may be able to pair you with one of other supply teachers who are available for 2/3 days a week. 

Planning, preparation and assessment is a required part of this role, and it is important that you are happy to take responsibility for these areas as well as teaching the class each day. You must also be able to attend staff meetings and parent’s evenings outside of the usual teaching day. Because of this added responsibility you will be “paid to scale” for the duration of this assignment, with holiday pay included in your daily rate.

If you are available from January and would like to hear more about this long-term class teaching position, please get in touch with Kim at Sussex Teachers on 01273 626800. If this role isn’t quite right for you but you are interested in joining Sussex Teachers for supply roles, please get in touch today to register with us and receive our job alert updates.
