Southwark, South East London
£32,500 - £46,500 per year depending on experience
September 2017 start Long term contract
We are currently working with a school in Southwark, looking for an enthusiastic, inspirational and caring KS2 teacher to join a team committed to developing the whole child
This 2 form entry Primary school was graded 'Good' by Ofsted in 2014 and are seeking to work towards an 'Outstanding' status.
- Senior leaders and governors have shown resilience and fortitude which, together with support from the local authority, have ensured that pupils' achievement has continued to improve strongly. All of the issues from the last Ofsted inspection have been resolved successfully.
- Senior and subject leaders support the Headteacher well in improving the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement.
- The governing body has used the support from the local authority to review and strengthen its procedures in order to accelerate improvements in safeguarding and achievement.
- Parents strongly support the work of the school and particularly the care and guidance available for their children.
- Pupils behave well and they are keen to learn. Relationships are good because pupils understand the school rules. They feel safe, happy and enjoy coming to school. This is reflected in the improved rate of attendance, which is now above average.
- The quality of teaching is good. Teachers use their subject knowledge well and are effectively supported by teaching assistants. Overall, staff morale is high.
- Pupils achieve well and make good progress across the school. Outcomes for groups of pupils are analysed precisely to ensure effective extra support is available when required. As a result, attainment at the end of Key Stage 2 is above average.
- Children in the Nursery and Reception classes make good progress, particularly in phonics (the sounds that letters make). This is built upon effectively across the school and, as a result, pupils enjoy reading and their achievement in the subject is good.
- Pupils are prepared effectively for the next stage of their education and for life in modern democratic Britain. This is because their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is well promoted.
- The behaviour of pupils is good. In lessons, pupils show positive attitudes to learning and work together well. They settle quickly in individual and group work and generally show a pride in the presentation in their books. They listen carefully to instructions so that they understand what they have to do. They cooperate well with each other when working together or sharing ideas. They understand that good behaviour helps them to improve their work.
- Pupils move around the large school building sensibly and safely. Outside, the small playground has a wide range of equipment for the pupils to use, which is well supervised. Pupils understand that the rules for using the equipment are for their safety because they helped to set the guidance through the school council.
- Pupils contribute to the work of the school through the school council, specific tasks and helping other classes; for example, Year 5 pupils regularly support Year 2 pupils in their reading. Pupils feel that the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher are always available to help and do listen and respond to any concerns.
- Pupils show care and respect for their school. Classrooms, stairs, corridors and the playground are tidy and litter free. In the breakfast and after school clubs, pupils were well behaved and respectful towards the adults and the environment.
The School are committed to keeping their parents fully informed in all areas of their children's teaching and learning. As part of this commitment, they send home curriculum information for every year group during each new term in the form of a 'Termly Overview'. These also contain homework schedules.
