Pimlico Primary opens in a brand new building in September 2013 with its first Reception classes.
Do you have a passion for History, Geography, Science or Art? Do you wish you could use more of your subject knowledge in your classroom?
We believe that children should be introduced to a broad and content-rich curriculum from their first year at school. We believe that one of the most effective methods of improving a child's vocabulary, and therefore their literacy, is to read and talk about great fiction and informative non-fiction texts, to look at and learn about pictures and artefacts, to get stuck into practical science experiments. We also believe that it is through meaningful and practical professional development that teachers develop the confidence to develop and implement a knowledge-led curriculum. Do you?
Future Academies is looking to appoint two energetic Reception Teachers with the potential to deliver a new and pioneering knowledge-led curriculum with the rigour required to make a significant impact on the life chances of the pupils who walk through our doors.
We are looking for experienced teachers or NQTs who will:
- Embrace and develop the pedagogy necessary to implement a knowledge-led curriculum
- Be committed to on-going professional development to become an outstanding teacher. This will involve working enthusiastically with Pimlico Primary's leadership team, Future Academies and The Curriculum Centre to develop and review the school's schemes of work, lesson plans and resources
- Contribute to the wider life of the school by involving parents in their child's education, organising school trips
- Maintain a calm and inspiring school environment through effective behaviour management and classroom displays that reflect the content of the curriculum
- Be responsible and inspiring role models for all pupils and staff in the school
The successful candidate will:
- Have a vision aligned to Pimlico Primary's commitment to developing cultural literacy, raising aspirations and high standards of behaviour
- Have experience of high standards of behaviour and pastoral care, including establishing clear boundaries, using effective and systematic praise, rewards and sanctions
- Have an open mind and willingness to learn about and derive lessons from the recent developments in our understanding of how children learn
- Have excellent communication skills
- Be motivated, organised and an excellent time-keeper, willing to work as part of a team as well as independently
- Have a commitment to the safeguarding and welfare of all pupils
- Be qualified to degree level or above and qualified to work in the UK
We welcome applications from any individuals who believe they have the attributes necessary to achieve our goals.
