Post:        Full time Class Teacher and Key Stage 2 Phase Leader from January 2021 

Salary:     Dependent on experience Main Scale or Upper Pay Scale + TLR2.1 

Want to challenge and extend your understanding of what good teaching is? Want to use what we know from Cognitive Psychology about how the brain works to drive your practice and that of your team? Want to be part of improving the outcomes for a fabulous group of motivated pupils? 

We are looking for someone to join our Management Team and be part of what we are trying to build. You will be looking to take on a new challenge and will strive to develop a deeper understanding of cognitive psychology and how we can develop classroom practice to reflect this. You will not be afraid to do things that may be deemed radical by some – if there is sound scientific theory behind it.  

Why choose Willingham Primary School? 

  • We focus on what works, not on what has always been done 

  • Our warm/strict behaviour curriculum enables teachers to teach and pupils to learn 

  • We value feedback, NOT MARKING 

  • Our SMT work as a team to ensure that the school’s strategic direction is maintained and accelerated 

  • We have a traditional subject-based curriculum, not a cross-curricular topic/themed approach 

  • You can be part of building an incredible, knowledge-based curriculum, working with external subject experts to ensure disciplinary knowledge is built upon each year within the curriculum and that pupils remember, long-term, what they’ve been taught 

  • We have access to excellent partnerships who will support and challenge your thinking – you can be a lead part of something amazing 

The right candidate will align totally with our values of hard work, integrity and kindness and will support us in achieving our mission statement: to provide pupils with the knowledge, experiences and confidence they need to excel at secondary school and so that they can make the choices, now and in the future, to have a happy, fulfilling life. 

This post could suit a professional with EYFS, Primary or Secondary experience; we want the right people, not just people with the right experience.
