If you have what it takes to make a difference, then the children of Springfield need YOU!

This isn’t just any teaching job. This is the opportunity to be part of something amazing, to improve the life chances of children and to accelerate your career at a phenomenal rate. This unique post is non-class based and designed to empower the successful candidate to do whatever it takes to make learning within the wider curriculum and beyond - a

breath taking experience at our school.

Currently in Special Measures, the school will shortly be converting to become part of the REAch2 Academy Trust – the largest primary only academy chain in the UK, with the construction of a state of the art building starting next year. With our nearest REAch2 school just three miles away, you will be working with other amazing practitioners who share your

vision of an outstanding education for all.  However, don’t let our size frighten you. We are friendly and pride ourselves in our family ethos – come and see for yourselves.

So, if you are:

Driven by a strong moral purpose to enable achievement for all …

 Passionate about bringing learning alive for children (and adults!)…

 Steadfast in your determination to give children real-life experiences…

 Dedicated to making sleeping under the stars, a trip to the theatre, horse riding, fishing and much more - a reality for our children…

 A computing whizz, amazing artist, great geographer or remarkable historian who can share your excellent practice with colleagues across the primary age range in a nurturing and non-threatening way…

 Eager to champion SMSC and our unique REAch2 11 before 11 initiative….

 Adept at joint planning, team-teaching, interventions, coaching and mentoring or whatever it takes to bring about rapid improvements in provision and outcomes…

 Warm in character, easy to work with and committed to teamwork, recognising that more can be achieved together than is possible as individuals…

 Unafraid of hard work…

 Calm and able to handle pressure and setbacks…

 Keen to be challenged to become the best that you can be…

 Able to be pushed at an accelerated rate of development, and reflective and proactive enough to make it happen…

Then you would love to work at Springfield Primary School and we would love welcome you to the team. This is a once in lifetime opportunity to be part of something great. This opportunity will open doors both professionally and personally to anyone who joins our quest.

We can offer you:

• A Leadership Team dedicated to helping you develop an outstanding career;

• The chance to be part of a Multi-Academy Trust that genuinely cares about YOU;

• Exciting, accelerated leadership development and early promotion opportunities for the right candidates across the

West Midlands Multi-Academy Trust;

• The chance to work with a fantastic team;

• The chance to develop subjects and create experiences you are passionate about;

• An excellent CPD training programme with REAch2 and beyond;

• A tenacious and courageous leadership team who encourage creativity and thinking outside of the box:

• Appreciative, well-behaved and enthusiastic pupils;

• Proactive parents waiting to join us on our journey to excellence.

We would like to hear from great teachers and leaders, with primary experience and a genuine commitment to improving the life chances of the children they teach.
