The Learning for Life Partnership along with the Principal at Wistaston Church Lane Academy are excited to be able to appoint a motivated, committed and highly effective teacher to join our hardworking and enthusiastic team to cover maternity leave. The successful candidate should have experience of teaching within Key Stage One. An understanding of Year Two SATs or the Year One Phonics check and how children are prepared for them is also favourable. A knowledge of the teaching of Phonics, preferably using Reading Planet Rocket Phonics, is desirable.
We have two positions available, both to cover maternity leave:
- Year Two teacher – 14th November 2022 to 31st August 2023
- Year One teacher – 21st November 2022 to 31st August 2023
In your application please specify which position you are applying for, or state if you would like to be considered for both roles.
We are particularly looking for a teacher with a love of the teaching of reading, writing and maths and will fit in with the values and ethos of Church Lane colleagues. They are expected to consistently demonstrate high expectations of attainment, achievement and behaviour. They should be well-organised and highly motivated. They will have excellent communication skills and a commitment to continued professional development.
Working at Wistaston Church Lane is a privilege. We all share our CARE behaviours which govern our behaviour and attitudes to work.
Child-Centred: We are driven by the needs and interests of our children
Ambitious: We use our energy, skills and resources to deliver the best sustainable education and experience for learners
Respect: We respect and value those who we work with and the contribution that they make
Enthusiasm: We are passionate about making working and learning at Church Lane a positive experience
The school and the partnership are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced disclosure from the DBS.
We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates and candidates with disabilities because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at The Learning for Life Partnership. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater outcomes for children.
Your application should include a letter to tell us more about you and how you would contribute to the excellent work of the school.
