Are you a good teacher - an innovative and reflective practitioner who can make a difference to children's lives?

Do you have high expectations?

Are you passionate about providing an excellent education for all children, including those with additional needs and more confident learners?

Are you looking for a unique opportunity?

If so, our children need you!

We are looking for an additional teacher to join our team until 31st August 2024 in the first instance, but there is a possibility of extending this, subject to staffing requirements.

About the role:

As a newly appointed member of the Sir Martin Frobisher family, you will help shape our future direction. You will work alongside our Senior Leadership Team and other Sir Martin Frobisher staff to help create an exciting and vibrant school, where all children thrive, regardless of their background.

You will work in partnership with other Class Teachers and Learning Support Assistants. You will be supported by experienced Senior Leaders and be part of the wider Academy Team.

There is potential for your role to grow and adapt with the academy over the coming years, with leadership opportunities, as the school develops and improves.

You may be expected to lead a curriculum subject area, unless you are an ECT.

What we're looking for:

We are looking for a good classroom practitioner who would be happy to work in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Initially, you would be working in KS1 in the mornings and lower KS2 in the afternoons. You will be highly driven and motivated, have an eye for detail, and able to work flexibly and creatively.

The successful candidate will have:

- An excellent understanding of the EYFS / National Curriculum, age-related expectations and Early Learning Goals
- The motivation and resilience to achieve the very best for the children in our care and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence
- Proven experience as a good classroom teacher
- Experience of working with children of different ages within Key Stages 1 and 2
- Excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour

- The ability to be a positive team player and be able to use their own initiative

In return we can offer:
- A firm commitment to you and your professional development
- Friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and Governors
- A growing learning community
- Encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference

- Coaching and mentoring from a member of the academy's Senior Leadership Team

- Fantastic Trust-wide CPD opportunities

- Vast opportunities for career progression

Ideally, you will also have experience of working with children with SEND. You will be able to scaffold and extend children's learning and develop their independent thinking through appropriate questioning as well as being committed to consistency, inclusion and challenge. You will be part of a unique community as well as being part of the largest primary Multi-Academy Trust in the country.

The children at Sir Martin Frobisher need a stable and committed staff, who really believe in them and are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure they receive the best teaching and the widest opportunities possible.

In return, you will see that our children are enthusiastic, keen to learn and rewarding to teach.

You will be welcomed and supported as part of an established team.

Information about the School

Sir Martin Frobisher Academy is a primary academy in Jaywick, Essex, with a current roll of 170~ children. Many of our families live on the Brooklands Estate in Jaywick Sands, the most deprived area in Britain. We are pleased to be able to offer transport to those families most in need to ensure their children can attend school regularly.

Sir Martin Frobisher converted to academy status in Sept 2016 and now has a strong, committed and experienced senior leadership team, in place for the next 3 to 5 years, who are dedicated to moving the school forward, while ensuring the individual needs of all children are met.

The Academy has a high number of PPG, FSM and SEND children and all staff need to understand the complexity of this and of the unique community that Sir Martin Frobisher Academy is at the heart of.

Having determined, and recently implemented, our consistent whole-school teaching and learning strategies, we are now excited to begin to monitor the impact these will have on children’s learning over time. The children at Sir Martin Frobisher Academy are lively and enthusiastic, and need the very best, and fully committed, practitioners.

The sense of community is developing, and we are hoping to move back to a Local Governing Body in September 2023, following our Intervention Board being invoked to hold all stakeholders to account.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
