We have an unrivalled reputation within Primary schools in the London Boroughs, and work with over 2,500 schools each week to find the right match for your skills.
We take great pride in the extremely high service levels that we provide to both our schools and our candidates. Our service is honest and efficient and, in addition to our recruitment solution, we offer the opportunity for additional training and development for our candidates. You will also receive personalised career support from the team.
Due to our long running success as the official School Supply service for both Lambeth and Lewisham Borough Councils, we currently need more teachers to help us meet the increasing demands of schools in Southwark who have been recommended to us by their neighbouring boroughs.
The School: We are currently looking for a KS2 teacher to cover PPA for the summer term on behalf of a 2form community primary school in Southwark. The school also has a nursery on site, and was graded "Outstanding" during its most recent Ofsted. The school is proud of its academic achievements, with a high proportion of children achieving well above average every year in both KS1 and KS2 SATs, and 18children achieving a Level6 in 2012. Places at this school are highly sought after due to its reputation in the area as well as its position on local and national performance tables. Parents are encouraged to become involved in school life, volunteering their time both in the classroom and with extra curricular trips and activities. The ideal teacher would therefore be someone who embraces this community ethos, encouraging parents to work in partnership with the school, allowing pupils development and learning to continue at home and provide consistency for them, enabling pupils to reach the academic expectations the school desires of them.
The Children: Southwark is a highly diverse area, with many schools having pupils from a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. This can lead to a range of ability levels, as well as EAL needs, however the schools have a strong support network of specialist TAs and other resources to assist teachers. The pupils can display challenging behaviour due to their varying home lives, so the ideal teachers will be those with strong personalities who have creative and practical methods of classroom management and can deliver inclusive lessons, which make children eager to learn and become more involved in their own learning journeys.
The Job: We are looking for teachers with QTS this Long Term assignment who can:
- Be able to teach in KS2.
- Cover Year3- Year6 PPA.
- Commit to the position for the duration of the summer term.
- Have relevant up to date experience in UK schools.
- Preferably have knowledge of SATs requirements, but this is not essential.
- Ensure effective classroom management in line with schools' behaviour policies.
- Treat every assignment as if it is a permanent role, injecting a sense of purpose into the classroom ad helping the schools continue to have a positive impact on pupils' lives to the best of your ability.
- Provide references to cover the last 12months, as well as be willing to complete a CRB/DBS check alongside other safeguarding checks and requirements.
In reward for our teachers' hard work and commitment we provide competitive rates of pay with no hidden deductions, access to Randstad Education's online CPD portfolio, bespoke CPD courses ran by professionals (often free of charge), long term and permanent job opportunities locally as well as across the UK and internationally, a dedicated consultant with a 24/7 on call facility and a honest and trustworthy approach that matches you to the right school.
