Full Time
Initially for two terms
Birklands Primary School, Appleton Street, Mansfield NG20 0QF
MPS/UPS (£23,720 - £39,406)

To Start January 2020

Birklands Primary School are seeking to appoint an excellent class teacher who will have the enthusiasm and energy to really make a difference in the classroom. The post is for maternity cover and the successful candidate will be joining our year 3 and 4 team.

We are looking for a teacher who is on a mission – the kind of person who makes others smile because of their enthusiasm; the kind of person who will get satisfaction from seeing our children learn to do things that staff in other schools might take for granted. In return, you will get a lot back from our pupils – they are amazing – and you will be working for a Trust that will take an active interest in your wellbeing and development.

The post is suitable for both NQTs and experienced teachers.

Visits are encouraged – come and see us in action!

As a school we can offer:

  • Support from a forward thinking and dynamic school leadership team
  • An opportunity to work with talented and committed staff
  • Pupils who are keen to learn and participate in the life of their school
  • A truly inclusive ethos and shared moral commitment to secure the best outcomes for every learner
  • Excellent support for your personal and professional development.
