We are looking to appoint an experienced Year 1 Teacher to cover maternity leave at a Primary School in Wandsworth.
This position will initially be for 2 terms, until Easter 2019. However, there is potential that this could be extended, or that a permanent contract could be offered from the start of the summer term 2019.
On offer is:
• The chance to work with an experienced and inspiring Headteacher who trains and supports leaders from other schools in the area
• A bright and modern classroom with excellent resources
• Support from experienced and highly trained Teaching Assistants
• A friendly and welcoming team of colleagues who work effectively as a team and support one another
The Headteacher is keen to appoint someone who will fit in well with the existing team. Therefore, you will need to be hard working, show excellent commitment to the children, and above all, place the needs and welfare of the children at the heart of everything that you do.
The school's intake of children is very diverse, with over 40 languages spoken. For many of the children, attending school can be the only time that they hear or speak English. For this reason, you will need to have excellent communication skills.
At their most recent Ofsted inspection, they were graded as Good in all areas. There are 2 forms of entry at the school and you will be required to work closely with the other Year 1 Teacher, who you will share your PPA time with each week.
The school is situated in a lovely location, on the outskirts of Richmond Park, a stone's throw from Putney Village. There is a large staff car park on site at the school and a bus stop outside the school, with routes to Kingston, Hammersmith, Putney and Wimbledon.
