About The Role

Maternity Leave cover from after October half term until end July 2022

Tymberwood Academy is an Ofsted rated ‘good’ school. We take workload seriously and work collaboratively with staff to enable an effective work-life balance. As a school we are moving towards being sustainably great. With this in mind, we firmly believe that our children – with a whole variety of different strengths and skills – need to be cared for, need to be loved and need to know that you are fighting for them. Our staff believe that our pupils can go on and do any job or role in the future and essentially that anything is possible. Our staff go above and beyond to enable that to happen. As a forward thinking and progressive school we are a hub for professional development and opportunity where our teacher voice matters and is valued. We encourage our teachers to elicit change and actively contribute to help shape our school.

We are seeking to appoint an inspiring, reflective and creative practitioner, to cover Maternity Leave from after October half term until July 2022 who can:

  • Be an integral part of the next stage in our journey
  • Make learning irresistible, effective and inclusive
  • Be excited about ongoing professional development
  • Welcome a team focused learning environment
  • Share and develop teaching and learning to continue to create an inspiring school environment

For successful candidates we can offer:

  • A dedicated, motivated teaching team
  • An active school community with supportive parents
  • A commitment to your professional development
  • An innovative and flexible learning environment
  • A vibrant and welcoming learning environment
  • Excellent training at all levels through Tymberwood Academy and Reach 2 Academy

At Tymberwood Academy, we offer not just a teaching position but an environment that will challenge you, support you and celebrate you on your teaching journey as a lifelong learner.  If you believe that you have the attributes necessary to help establish and shape an outstanding school please contact the Headteacher, Sarah Kelley-Day, for an informal discussion where a warm welcome awaits you.
