Long Furlong School is seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated and talented teacher to cover maternity leave in our Year 2 class. The ideal candidate will have experience of teaching Year 2, and a good understanding of statutory assessment.

Long Furlong is a vibrant, friendly school with delightful children, committed and hardworking staff, and supportive governors and parents/carers. In November 2017 we were judged by Ofsted to be a ‘Good’ school where “Pupils enjoy the many subjects and topics they study”, “Staff and parents are unanimous in their views that pupils feel safe and that the school does everything possible to protect pupils” and “There is a wonderful sense of community in the school where everyone is welcome and supported”.

We can offer:

  • Supportive colleagues and governors
  • Continuing professional development to support the successful applicant in carrying out the duties
  • Parents who actively support their children’s learning in a variety of ways
  • A modern, well-resourced and easily accessible school building

The successful candidate must be able to:

  • provide creative, enriching, learning opportunities,
  • demonstrate high expectations of learning and behaviour
  • demonstrate an ability to nurture and support all pupils, including those with complex learning, emotional or other needs
  • demonstrate good organisational and interpersonal skills
  • work closely with colleagues as part of a friendly and supportive team
  • demonstrate a positive attitude towards continuing school improvement

You will be expected to play a full part in the life of the school community.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed; please telephone our school office to arrange a suitable time.

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, candidates will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check.

Long Furlong is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
