Would you like to work at the first National Nurturing school in the UK? Would you like to be part of an inspiring team who genuinely make a difference every day? Are you passionate about working with children? Are you able to put children’s learning and well-being at the forefront of everything you do? Are you in need of a more flexible approach to working?

We are looking for an outstanding, ambitious and dynamic teacher to join our dedicated, supportive and friendly Year 6 team to support our children to 'catch up' following a long period away from school life. This part time role supports the class teachers and comes with a fixed term contract until the end of Summer 2021. You will run small booster groups and provide some PPA cover.

The award centres around our whole school community and includes the well-being of our staff. We know that this approach leads to well rounded, happy children who strive to achieve their best in all aspects of school life.

Laurance Haines School is a large, vibrant 2 form entry primary school within a very diverse community. Our school ethos centres around well trained, fully supported and happy staff who work together to make a genuine difference. We were the first school in the UK to achieve a National Nurture award in recognition of the outstanding and inspirational work our whole staff team does in embedding nurturing principles throughout the school. The award centres around our whole school community and includes the well-being of our staff. We know that this approach leads to well rounded, happy children who strive to achieve their best in all aspects of school life.

According to Ofsted:

Children’s safety and well-being are central to the school’s work. Leaders and staff have created a place where everyone is welcome and every step to success is celebrated.

Leaders have worked hard to gain the trust and support of families and the local community. Relationships are strong and the work of the school to bring the community together is valued. The school’s informative website, the workshops for parents and carers, and the support offered in many aspects of family life help parents to understand how they can support their children’s education and well-being.

A significant number of pupils have substantial barriers to learning, including joining the school with very little or no understanding of English. However, leaders and well-trained staff provide what is needed for pupils to overcome these difficulties and be successful.

Pupils say that the school is a friendly, enjoyable place. Most parents are equally pleased with the school. One parent summed up the views of many by saying: ‘There is a real community feel with this school. The teachers give each child importance, and this makes them feel special.’

Pupils are well mannered and respectful of others. Behaviour in lessons and around school is generally good. Pupils say that bullying is rare, and when it does occur, staff sort it out quickly.

A visit to the school is strongly encouraged. Please contact Mrs Allen on 01923 233146 to arrange a time to visit. We encourage visits to school during the opening weeks of the Autumn term.
