Class Teacher - KS1

Are you looking to teach within a successful and forward thinking school, where progress and outcomes for pupils are strong?

Do you value a broad curriculum that inspires pupils, creating a climate of high aspiration?

Have you been searching for a school that provides outstanding professional development opportunities that will ensure you develop your career?

If so, we are the school for you!

We are looking for a new class teacher to join our team. We are looking for someone who is committed to providing high quality teaching and learning opportunities across all 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. We need a practitioner who understands the importance of effective assessment as a key planning tool. 


As we 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 the recovery period. This looks different for every child, family and community and therefore we need a teacher who is intuitive, as well as flexible. We need a teacher who is committed to the health and welfare of each child, alongside their academic outcomes. 

At Orchard Park, we prides ourselves on our positive and nurturing ethos, quality first teaching and high expectations in all we do. We want an inspiring teacher to join our team, to ensure that pupils make rapid progress through an exciting and engaging curriculum.  We have just undertaken our last OFSTED inspection ( 29th/30th March) and whilst we are unable to divulge the outcomes,  we can tell share that 100% of staff reported that they are proud to work at the school and that 99% of parents would recommend the school to others.

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”.

“I am keen to develop as an excellent class teacher and a school leader. Orchard Park has given me a number of opportunities to develop my leadership skills and I have thrived under my professional leadership coaching. My career is going from strength to strength which has been recognised by the national professional qualification I have just been awarded”. 

As a school, we can provide you with:

•    An enthusiastic, talented and dedicated team to work alongside
•    A school where everyone is valued, wellbeing is of high importance and the team ethic is strong
•    Pupils that are hardworking, well behaved and passionate about being the best version of themselves
•    An outstanding, striking learning environment with excellent resourcing

We want you to come and see our school and encourage that you book a visit at your convenience. These visits provide you with the opportunity to meet the headteacher, as well as give you some context surrounding our school community.
