Full Time Class Teacher Required

Full Time Class Teacher (Maternity Cover) from September 2016 MPS/UPS

Bure Valley School has recently formed an exciting and innovative partnership with Aylsham High School to support the learning of children from Year 3 through to Year 11. Both ‘Good’ schools are members of The Aylsham Cluster Trust, which along with other cluster schools, is focused on raising standards and improving the quality of life for our children and their families.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and committed full time Teacher to cover maternity leave for an expected period of a year. All teachers work collaboratively to plan and deliver an exciting and challenging curriculum. There are also on-going professional discussions within year groups and across the whole school regarding best practice and the assessment of children’s work, to ensure consistency and high standards

“Teachers have high expectations of all pupils and plan work that is suitably challenging for them”
(OFSTED, February 2016)

We believe wholeheartedly in helping teachers to improve their classroom practice and our CPD programme is incredibly strong. We are also committed to exploring evidence based practice and current research in education.

The school has excellent staff, great facilities and an outstanding group of pupils. The support we enjoy from parents and the wider community is second to none. We believe that if we are going to maintain and improve on the school’s achievements, we have to continuously evaluate our approach to teaching and learning and this theme runs throughout our school improvement planning.

“There are positive relationships between all staff and pupils – these create an atmosphere where children want to learn”.
(OFSTED, February 2016)

If you would like to join a successful and well-resourced school in a genuinely warm and friendly environment with a tremendous community attitude, then we would love to hear from you.
