Required from October 2022
Smallwood Primary School and Language unit is a one form entry school with 280 pupils currently on role, including a resource base with 45 pupils. Our recent Ofsted inspection (2022) graded it a ‘Good’ school, highlighting: ‘pupils enjoy coming to school and are safe’, ‘they value their teachers and describe them as kind’.
Smallwood is an inclusive school where we recognise the value our pupils add to our world today and in the years to come. We recognise that our pupils’ futures will be in a rapidly ever-changing and diverse world – a world that must value, celebrate and protect our surroundings, our environments, our cultures and ultimately our planet. Our pupils will become adults in a world where jobs will be created to solve problems that currently do not exist. Our pupils will need to be flexible, adaptable, critical and creative thinkers as well as being resilient. Our pupils will need to have the confidence and ability to shape the world around them in order that they positively impact the wider world and our planet.
Our school vision of ‘Learning Together, Learners for Life, with Ambition, Achievement and Progress for all’ reflects our commitment to instilling a love of learning that we hope will stay with our children long after they leave Smallwood. Our school values ensure that every member of our community has the skills and tools they need in order to be successful lifelong learners.
We are passionate about the education of our children, continuous professional development of all staff and a strong partnership with parents and the wider community.
We are seeking to appoint a full-time permanent class teacher to join our friendly and dedicated team.
The year group will be confirmed following appointment and will be based on the expertise and experience of the successful candidate.
