Class Teacher Vacancies
Short Heath Federation

Our Federation offers a unique opportunity for the very best teachers to work in a single phase school, as well as the chance to work alongside colleagues from other phases, in order to enhance your professional development.

We are now entering a really exciting phase in our Federation’s development, as we are the West Walsall Nurture Hub, leading in schools on developing Restorative Practice, active members of the Attachment Research Community, working collaboratively on delivering Autism Education Trust training and continuing to develop our Specialist learning provisions in response to an increased number of children with specific additional needs! We are also just going into the third phase of our expansion to three form entry (with a building project on its way). This is great news for our current staff and for you! We can offer more opportunities for career development over time and more CPD than ever before! We are a fully inclusive school and enjoy the challenge of meeting the needs of every child in a unique way. Our practice is recognised as exceptional.

We are excited to be recruiting full or part time class teachers for a September start. We can offer permanent, fixed term and casual contracts in all phases.

If you are an energetic, enthusiastic and outstanding teacher, we want you at Short Heath Federation. You will inspire our children, ensuring they make good progress and enjoy learning. You might have just qualified, be in the early stages of your career or an experienced teacher. Your specialism may be in EYFS, Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2. Specialisms in SEN and SEMH would be an advantage, but we’ll give lots of training anyway.

You should:

  • be an inspirational teacher;
  • create an irresistible learning experience for every single child;
  • believe that all behaviour is communication of an unmet need;
  • believe that ‘every day, in every way, everyone matters’;
  • love working as part of a team;
  • be a courageous, innovative teacher who’s not afraid to try something new and learn from that;
  • be a reflective practitioner, adapting your practice in response to children’s changing needs;
  • support our Federation Christian ethos.

We can offer:

  • a tailor-made induction programme (whatever your career stage) including opportunities for developing practice in our own and other schools in Walsall;
  • a personalised professional development plan;
  • a career coach;
  • Local Authority staff well-being programme;
  • an exciting opportunity for extensive professional development across a federation of schools, working with good and outstanding teachers and a range of specialist practitioners in all phases;
  • laptop and iPad;
  • discounted childcare;
  • ongoing weekly professional development meetings;
  • the support of a leading practitioner and 6 specialist leaders of education spread across all phases;
  • the best children and families;
  • opportunities to shadow other colleagues, learning from the best;
  • supportive, fun, dedicated, creative and talented colleagues;
  • opportunities to support colleagues in a range of settings;
  • an exceptionally strong Governing Body;
