Are you a dedicated teacher who is passionate about raising educational attainment levels? Do you have proven success accelerating pupil progress across the core subjects?

Tradewind are looking to recruit a KS2 teacher to join a fantastic two-form entry school in a vibrant community in Tameside. This is a full-time role which will commence May 2021 and run until the end of the academic year with the possibility of an extension depending on your success in the role. Applicants with KS2 experience and specifically Year 6 are warmly encouraged to apply. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the school will not consider applications from NQT's.

About the School

This is a high performing school which was most recently judged 'Good' by OFSTED and was particularly praised for school-wide good behaviour and significant growth in reading. A large percentage of children are working at age-related expectations and this success is largely due to an experienced Headteacher who is passionate about their role and works hard to attain the highest standards of teaching and learning across the school.

The school aims to deliver a broad curriculum which encourages and inspires children to do their best and through creative approaches stimulates curiosity for learning beyond the classroom.

At this school, children are placed at the heart of every decision and in Year 6, the priority is ensuring that all pupils feel well equipped to smoothly transition into secondary education with the skills and knowledge that will allow them to overcome challenges with confidence.

  • Complete detailed plans that align with National Curriculum standards and create meaningful lessons that engage pupils and relate to real life scenarios
  • Plan clear steps to success with definitive criteria and ensure every learner can succeed
  • Build a positive rapport with all pupils based on trust and mutual respect and encourage children to take ownership and individual accountability for their learning
  • Differentiate lessons to both scaffold and stretch learners appropriately and plan targeted interventions across all core subjects to bridge gaps in learning
  • Keep up-to-date records of attainment and use pre and post assessments effectively to inform when to revisit/reteach and incorporate mini-plenaries into lessons
  • Liaise with the other Year 6 class teacher to plan targeted interventions to accelerate pupil progress and support pupils meeting age related expectations
  • Support pupils, behavioural, social and emotional wellbeing and ensure all children leave Year 6 being readily prepared for the transition to Secondary school.
