Tradewind Manchester are recruiting!

Tradewind Manchester is currently looking for an outstanding classroom practitioner for a mixed Yr1/2 class. This is a full time, long term role covering a maternity leave which will initially end in July 2020. The role will pay up to £150 a day.

To join us and be successful in this Yr1/2 Teacher role, you will need to:
*Hold QTS Status
*Be subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure, Overseas Police Clearances (if applicable) and professional references checks
*Provide a CV with at least 10 years employment/education history included and any employment breaks must be explained
*Have the legal right to work in the UK

About the school
We are recruiting for a Yr1/2 Teacher on behalf of a small primary school in Rochdale. The school has a 'good' rating from Ofsted when last inspected in 2017. Results last year were below the national and LEA average, however average scores for reading were above average nationally and locally. The school is friendly and inclusive, very much at the heart of the community. They believe that every day at school should be the very best day a child can have. They have a motto - We work hard, we play hard and we smile.

The school is based in Rochdale, with excellent public transport links and ample parking available.

Having worked with the school for several years and forging a close working relationship with the SLT, I can honestly say this is a brilliant school to work at. Teachers who have worked at the school previously always mention the warm welcome they receive from children and staff.

About the role
This OFSTED 'good' primary school (2017) are looking for an innovative and inspirational teacher to teach a mixed Yr1/2 class for the full academic year from September 2019. We are looking for someone who can think outside the box and has high expectations of themselves and others.
The successful candidate will work in partnership with the Headteacher and wider leadership team to develop outstanding teaching and learning across school ensuring that attainment and achievement opportunities are maximised for our children. This post requires a teacher for a Year 1/2 class. The position is within a team of staff, therefore there will be plenty of support around KS1 SATS, however someone with experience with SATS is desirable.
The ability to communicate at effectively with children, parents and external agencies and provide advice in accurate spoken English is an essential requirement of this post. The school has recently taken in several children who have very limited understanding and knowledge of the English language. Some of these children are in the Yr1/2 class.
As a Classroom Teacher, you will have the support of a cohesive and committed team of teachers and SLT who work collaboratively to maintain high standards and expectations, plus:
· a well-equipped school with interactive white boards and plenty of resources
· the successful Teacher will be provided with a comprehensive induction package and a wide range of CPD opportunities for all staff.

*An honest and friendly team with a wealth of educational experience
