Fixed term full time teacher required at Ham Dingle Primary School in Pedmore. Pay scale between PT1 (£32850) and PT6 (£42,350). Contract will be reviewed with a view to extend.
Ham Dingle is a popular two-form entry primary school that is surrounded by beautiful grounds. Not only does the school have a Forest School, but the school also has an edible garden where we grow our own produce.
At Ham Dingle, we strongly believe that every child is different, yet equally important and valued. We strive to provide a safe, caring and happy environment which nurtures all areas of a child's growth and development.
We give high priority to academic excellence through our delivery of a broad-based and balanced curriculum, but also value achievement and attainment in other areas such as Sport, Technology and the Arts. We have extremely strong Music and French provision, and these subjects are taught by specialist teachers. Many pupils receive one to one music tuition and play several musical instruments. The school choir is also very strong and regularly completes in singing competitions as well as attending the annual Young Voices event.
At Ham Dingle we invest in pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and offer many wider curriculum opportunities to all pupils. These include pupil leadership programmes such as JASS – the Junior Award Scheme for schools, which aims to support young people through the transition from primary school to lower secondary school.
United Learning is a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer life-changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum, and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff's wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone.
United Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
All positions are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and shortlisted candidates will be subject to an online check.
United Learning values diversity and inclusion and is committed to creating and sustaining a more diverse workforce. We welcome applications from professionals of minority ethnic origin and from majority ethnic professionals who share our commitment to inclusion and diversity.
