Governors of Brockmoor Primary are looking to appoint a class teacher to join our team from Spring 2021 to cover maternity leave. This will be a fixed-term post for up to 12 months in Year 3. We are a two-form entry school catering for pupils from 3 to 11 years old that is situated in the borough of Dudley. We have high expectations of our pupils and believe that there are no barriers that we cannot overcome for them. 

This is an exciting time to join Brockmoor Primary School on its rapid school improvement journey. There has been much change in the last two years with a new curriculum and growing staff team with professional development opportunities available to all. We want to encourage hard-working teachers who are committed to improving the life chances of our children. In return, you will be welcomed by a friendly and supportive team, happy and enthusiastic children, and the chance to develop your career.

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate innovative, excellent people skills and flexibility in their approach to teaching.  You will ‘lead from the front’ and inspire your classroom team to maximise the potential for each and every one of our children.  We are looking to place the best person in the best place for our children. As a team, we work collaboratively, supporting each other and as an excellent practitioner, you would lead by example for your year group.

We are looking for people who:

  • Are positive and relish the opportunity to make a difference to children’s lives
  • Enjoy working work well as part of a team

You will be a vital part in making our school:

In return we can offer:

  • A vibrant and exciting work environment
  • A friendly, welcoming, and supportive team
  • Happy and enthusiastic children who love to learn
  • Working and planning alongside a strong team
  • A creative approach to teaching and learning

If you are ambitious and are committed to ensuring our children succeed, if you can embed, perseverance, independence, and respect in your classroom, if you strive for excellence, we would love to hear from you.

Normally visits to the school are warmly welcomed, however with the current measures in place we will endeavour to accommodate visits prior to interview, with Covid restrictions and precautions in place.
