Are you an outstanding teacher who is looking for a Key Stage 2 teaching position in an independent school in central London…?

An independent school in the Islington area of North London are looking to recruit an experienced Key Stage 2 Teacher school teacher to teach a lower Key Stage 2 class from January 2020. The role is a full-time class teaching position with competitive salary available in line with experience (MPS 1-6 Inner London - £30,480 - £41,483).

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 3-11. The role of the teacher is central to the success of any school where teaching and learning is the primary focus. However, by working at this school, a teacher commits themselves to providing an outstanding learning environment with expectations above the national average. 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 2 Teacher role will involve the following responsibilities:
*Plan, prepare and teach stimulating lessons to a Year 3 or 4 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

*A teacher who has leadership experience in Literacy or Phonics
*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 Islington, with easy access via Angel/ Old Street and Farringdon/ Kings Cross St Pancras, meaning excellent access from all directions.

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 -- our 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 parents are extremely supportive of the school and this vital partnership is most important to the success of the child.
