Class Teacher Luton Bedfordshire

Vacancy Details: Class Teacher Luton Bedfordshire

Dear potential member of Team Wenlock

About you: 

The school are looking for 2 exceptional KS2 teachers to be at the chalk face of raising the bar in teaching and learning. You will be curious about pedagogy, passionate about progress and formidable with your formative assessment. They are looking for team players who are interested in continually growing and progressing in their career.

About the school:

They are the only Church of England school in Luton, and as such occupy a unique position in their supportive and proud community. The school are on an exciting journey and they are a school with great potential. Most importantly – their children are fantastic. They truly are a genuine delight – polite, happy, well mannered, with excellent behaviour.  Some have challenging backgrounds, but our values are so supportive and it is an opportunity to make a real and positive difference to young lives. You will be able to  spend your time and energy focused on being a great teacher. Wenlock is a truly diverse cohort with children from all faiths, cultures and backgrounds who work and play together as one. They believe they are a shining jewel of inclusion.

The school has a great staff team – supportive, open to change, and determined to get the school the recognition it deserves. As an integral part of their team you will have a  real opportunity to be innovative and creative.

Finally, their school is a wonderful learning environment both inside and outside– clean, modern, spacious, well equipped and fully air-conditioned throughout.

Interested in joining the school?

Some questions you might have, teacher to teacher:

Do I need to have a church or faith school background?

Staff at the school, like the children,  come from range of faiths and none. What you must have though is a strong commitment to the school’s values which are based on inclusive Christian values. The Diocese Team is wonderfully supportive and  caring and their partnership is a great asset to their work.

What opportunities for career progression will I have?

Their Performance Management and CPD systems will support and challenge you to grow and shape you to be the best professional that you can be.

The school is Inadequate – why?

The answer is relatively simple. Systems and processes were inconsistent or not robustly embedded. They are already working very hard and successfully with the LA and the Diocese and have implemented new strategies since their last Ofsted. They look forward to the rapid changes we are making having a positive outcome on future progress.

What are the parents like?

Supportive, rarely confrontational, and becoming rapidly more engaged in their children’s education. They will work together to inspire them as well as their children.

Wenlock CofE Junior School is on a rapid trajectory. They are confident, committed and a truly great place to work. The school want new colleagues to join Team Wenlock, and help them to fly.

You’ll find them warm, friendly, challenging, and motivated. And above all with the one thing a great school must have – a sense of wonder and fun.

Unfortunately at the moment they are unable to take on any ECT.

Please call the school, or drop them a line to arrange an informal visit. They would love to meet you
