Ryders Hayes School is a popular, highly-regarded primary school in Pelsall, Walsall.  Always at the cutting edge of education, we were one of the first Primary Academy Converters and Teaching Schools in the country. A caring school, judged ‘Good’ by OFSTED and expecting a return visit to be considered for OUTSTANDING, we are committed to giving our pupils the opportunity to grow; to learn new skills, and to develop their potential to be the best they can be. Our ‘child centred, learning focused’ approach, reflects our desire to create an environment where young people get the best possible start in life, together with strong parental engagement, to develop a clear set of values and academic attainment as rounded, confident young people, of good character, well prepared for their futures in a rapidly changing world.

Our vision is: to nurture and facilitate the growth of our pupils and their learning; equipping them with the skills and attributes to embrace the challenges of a rapidly changing world. To enjoy success for today and be prepared for tomorrow, by instilling the values of:

Character, Citizenship, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical Thinking.

The Governing Body is looking to appoint a dynamic and adaptable teacher to join our team who will be able to provide flexible cover for colleagues’ short–term absence; release for CPD and leadership time, and special projects on an ad hoc basis. This would suit a teacher: returning from a career break or maternity leave; wishing to retire early but still keep in touch with teaching (hours to suit); a part-time teacher wanting more hours etc. To be successful, you will need:

  • support the development of an inspiring and innovative curriculum;
  • uphold the inclusive principles that are integral to our ethos;
  • understand the needs of our varied community

We can offer you:

  • the opportunity to make a difference to our happy and successful school.
  • a school open to new ideas and willing to embrace change for the good of the school.
  • excellent development opportunities as a leader of learning for our pupils; staff, and wider professional community within our Teaching School.
