Lead Teacher

Responsible to: Headteacher

Salary Scale: TMS + Fringe + TLR 2

Are you ready for the next step in your career?

Do you want the opportunity to drive whole school improvement in a specific subject area?

Do you have the high expectations required to lead a year group?

Somers Heath Primary School is looking for a dynamic and driven teacher to lead a year group and a subject area across our school. Our well-behaved children need teachers who believe that all children, no matter their background, deserve an exceptional education.

Somers Heath is a two-form entry primary school with a newly refurbished building and a large site. This role will be a lead teacher for a year group and a whole school subject leader. The post holder will need to be an excellent class teacher who can be a model for the professional development of others in the school as well as a motivated subject leader who is able to inspire others through their passion for a subject.

As part of Catalyst Academies Trust, a small Thurrock based Multi-Academy Trust with high expectations for all our children, we can offer:

· A £1,000 Catalyst welcome payment for successful candidates (teachers paid on Main Scale to UPS3 only) if you are appointed through a direct application to a Catalyst school (i.e. avoiding agency costs). This payment is allocated 6 months after you have been in post.

· Access to our "Catalyst Employee Perks" platform where you will be able to access a range of discounts from regular supermarkets, numerous retailers, family days out, restaurants and more.

· Excellent support networks.

· Career development as a priority, with 80% of senior leaders in The Trust being promoted from within.

A visit to Somers Heath is vital for any applicant so you can find out more about the role and our school. Please contact the Headteacher via the school office to arrange an appointment.

Closing Date: Wednesday 31st January

Interview Date: Week Beginning Monday 5th February
