A unique opportunity for an experienced and qualified Key Stage 2 teacher has arisen at a client primary school in Birmingham to cover a one year contract. The successful candidate must have experience in coordinating science.
Edustaff are recruiting for an interesting vacancy at a high performing client primary school in Birmingham. This Science coordinator teaching role would be a full time for five days a week.
The role would require you to demonstrate exceptional teaching ability to form part of the schools continual improvement programme.
My client is a primary school based in Birmingham known for providing a high level of education. Students achieve well and demonstrate a good attitude towards learning. There is a strong management team and they have made enormous improvements over the last few years. They have recently received a ‘good' OFSTED report, reaffirming all the positive changes that have taken place.
To be considered for the role of Key Stage 2 teacher and Science coordinator role in Birmingham, all applicants must fulfil the following criteria:
* Be a Science specialist or have prior experience of teaching Science to Key Stage 2 pupils
* Be available for face to face interview;
* Commit to the full duration of the contract.
* It is desirable that you be UK qualified or hold a recognised teaching qualification;
My client is a large primary school and is situated within a residential area. The vast majority of pupils are from minority ethnic families. Almost all pupils learn English as an additional language and the main languages spoken at home are Urdu, Punjabi and Mirpuri. A very small proportion of pupils come from White British heritage. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs is similar to the national average. Their needs include: specific and moderate learning difficulties; behavioural, emotional and social needs; speech, language and communication difficulties; visual impairment; physical disabilities; and autism. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals is higher than the national average.
This is a rapidly improving school. There are some significant strengths in the school, which include good provision for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage, a good curriculum and effective procedures for the care, guidance and support of pupils. It has good links with parents and carers and promotes outstanding community cohesion among pupils and their families within the local area and in the wider world. Pupils who speak English as an additional language are supported well for their language needs to ensure good equality of opportunity for learning.
The headteacher is the driving force in the school and works very closely with the deputy headteacher to provide a strong sense of ambition and drive. Together with senior staff, they form the 'Leadership Group' and have effectively strengthened the procedures for monitoring provision and analysing assessment data. Much has been accomplished in one year, although there is still a lot to be done to raise standards and accelerate progress. This is reflected accurately in the detailed school development plan. Inspection findings concur with some aspects but not all of the school's most recent self evaluation. The Chair of the Governing Body is keen to broaden the role of the school's governing body. However, at present, governors are not sufficiently involved in overseeing provision. Even so, based on its good track record of improvement over the last year and the strong leadership and management of the senior staff, the school has good capacity to sustain improvement.
