Staff Vacancies

PPA Teacher -0.4


 We are looking for a PPA teacher to join our team for the rest of the academic year. We need someone who will help implement our curriculum through a number of classes, ensuring that intent statement is realised and impact is strong. We are looking for someone who is committed to providing high quality teaching and learning opportunities across agreed curriculum areas. A teacher who will strive for excellence. Someone who will exploit all cross-curricular opportunities to ensure that pupils make rapid progress through an enriched experience. 

As we begin to exit the pandemic, the role of the teacher has never been so important. At Orchard Park, we recognise that we are the key leaders in supporting children and their families through these unprecedented times. This looks different for every child, family and community and therefore we need a teacher who is intuitive, as well as flexible. Additional PPA provision will enable the team to address the catch up agenda and to plug gaps quickly and effectively. 

At Orchard Park, we prides ourselves on our positive and nurturing ethos, quality first teaching and high expectations in all we do. Our 2017 Ofsted stated that we are school where “there is a culture of ambition, where children are encouraged to dream big.” We want an inspiring teacher to join our team, to ensure that pupils make rapid progress through an exciting and engaging curriculum. 
Our staff thrive being part of the Orchard Park team. They state:

“Orchard Park has completely transformed the way I teach. I have had excellent opportunities to develop as a teacher through continual supportive CPD and challenge. Having excellent ICT resources, teaching at Orchard Park is fun and innovative. The children are keen to learn and a pleasure to teach”.
