Class teacher with TLR

Cramlington Village Primary School is seeking to employ an experienced class teacher who is ready to take on a step towards more responsibility as a middle leader. Moving into our tenth year since opening, our highly diverse pupil profile provides an interesting and exciting opportunity to further strengthen your teaching expertise alongside dedicated release time to be able to fulfill additional leadership responsibilities.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for problem solvers, who can creatively deliver an interactive experiential learning experience, developing and sustaining strong relationships with their children and who show a can-do attitude to tackle challenges. Our aim is that the successful candidate will take aspects of subject coordination for a core subject, or mentoring of ECTs that will support them to be paid with an additional TLR.

What we can offer:

As a school team we can offer you a happy, aspirational working environment with well managed funding that supports positive educational outcomes for our children. Our recent staff survey states that 100% of our staff team are happy or somewhat happy to come to work everyday. This is backed up by excellent staff attendance throughout the school and a strong wellbeing programme underpinned by clear, honest, open conversations about workload, performance and a clear celebration of individual and whole school successes.

We have a well resourced school, with strong systems and the opportunity to influence those systems as we constantly tweak and refine what we have to make it the best it can be. The school is committed first and foremost to our children and this thread runs through it. Our children are enthusiastic, caring and they love learning. We have been told by external professionals that our children ‘melted their hearts’ on more than one occasion. We self graded ‘behaviour’ as outstanding recently as part of our self evaluation using Ofsted criteria.

We are passionate about mutually respectful relationships between everyone in our school. We offer a strong emphasis on teaching basic literacy and numeracy skills in an authentically accessible way, that is interactive and fun. The support staff team is an experienced, happy team who work well together and who have a passion for our school to offer the best it can for the children. This passion is mirrored by all CVPS staff – as we truly all subscribe to “empower everyone to achieve”. We have a sound, innovative staff CPD programme which has been highly influenced by the Ambition Institute at both entry level teaching and leadership training.

There is flexibility in school to offer this post in any age group other than nursery as our existing team is flexible and highly skilled – the most important element is to have like-minded people join the team.
Cramlington Village Primary delivers a strong focus on developing emotional well being and a holistic way of addressing our varied pupil needs.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment, part of which requires clearance through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). 

We look forward to receiving your application.
