An independent Jewish preparatory school in the Westminster area of North West London are looking to recruit an experienced Key Stage 1 (Rec- Year 2) Teacher school teacher to start with them from September 2019. The role is a full-time class teaching position with competitive salary available in line with experience (above MPS 1-6 Inner London, circa £31,000 - £42,000).

This Jewish preparatory School seeks to imbue its students with a love of learning of both secular and Jewish studies, with 25% of pupil timetable dedicated to Jewish studies, and these lessons are delivered by specialist teachers. Their ethos is achieved through the support they give each individual pupil and taking into account the religious beliefs they value in every decision one makes. This is a small and family friendly school whose success is based on the teamwork of all teaching and support staff. The school has a one form entry and roll of 175 girls and boys aged 2-11.

The role of the teacher is central to the success of any school where teaching and learning is the primary focus. Furthermore, in addition to the small class sizes, they also expect teachers to provide differentiated support for all pupils in their class, challenging and stimulating them in all that they do.

This Key Stage 1 Teacher role will involve the following responsibilities:
*Plan, prepare and teach stimulating lessons to a Key Stage 1 class, according to the educational needs of assigned pupils, including the setting and marking of both class work and homework
*Maintain a positive learning environment through classroom management among the pupils and safeguarding their health and safety
*Preparation of pupils for secondary school and selective school examinations
*Assess, record and report on the development, progress and attainment of pupils, as well as on their personal and social needs

The ideal candidate for this Key Stage 1 Teacher role will be:
*A teacher who is either primary trained, and holds QTS or an overseas trained teacher with equivalent qualification
*A teacher with experience of preparing students for SATs or entrance examinations
*A motivated and enthusiastic teacher who is passionate about learning and teaching
*Open-minded, self-evaluative and adaptable to changing circumstances and new ideas
*A teacher who has a willingness to be involved in the wider life of the school

The school is based in Maida Vale, North West Central London, with easy access via Bakerloo and Overground lines, and within 10-15 minutes of Paddington, Oxford Circus and Baker Street stations.

Benefits of working at this school:
*Class sizes are small and with a favourable ratio of teachers to children -- as little as 1:5 depending on age and need - the school's programmes of learning have the flexibility for differentiation.
*The school offers a warm, nurturing atmosphere that develops self-confidence in their children, prepares them for the challenges ahead whilst never forgetting that childhood is a stage of life rather than a waiting room for adulthood.
*The curriculum offers the balance of an enriched secular education and a most comprehensive and fulfilling Jewish Studies programme of learning.
*The parents are extremely supportive of the school and this vital partnership is most important to the success of the child.

To join us and be successful in this Key Stage 1 Teacher role you will need to:
*Hold QTS status or equivalent teaching qualification
*This position is subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, Overseas Police Clearances (if applicable) and professional reference checks
*Your CV must cover the last 10 years of employment history where possible and any employment breaks must be explained
