MPS - Permanent Position

St Benet’s is a small Catholic School, in the heart of Beccles. We are federated with St Edmund’s in Bungay and part of the St John the Baptist Catholic MAT. This is a family of schools that work collaboratively together and have the privilege of a research school and teaching school hub within it.

We are proud of all we have achieved in terms of curriculum design and creating a homely working environment, to ensure our children are the best they can be and have all the opportunities to reach their full potential by the time they move onto high school.

We are looking for a caring, calm, and knowledgeable individual, especially of KS1approaches, to become a supportive member of the team. You must be able to challenge the children but keep the learning engaging, through authentic resources and helping pupils create beautiful work.

We need someone who can create a positive learning environment, where the children feel they are able to question, be curious and learn from their mistakes. The school has high expectations for all, coupled with a nurturing atmosphere with our Catholic ethos. Our new team member may also understand the Early Years curriculum in order to support the transition to KS1.

We aim to challenge children to be the best that they can be, both in terms of academics and as an individual who cares about others.

You will need to:

  • support the Catholic ethos of our school and provide excellent pastoral care through a nurturing approach
  • be enthusiastic and creative in your approach to teaching, delivering excellent learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom
  • be a team player with strong interpersonal and organisational skills
  • be a confident practitioner who expects and maintains the highest standards of pupil achievement, personal development and behaviour for learning
  • have a clear commitment to the safeguarding of all children
  • foster positive caring relationships with pupils, staff, parents and other stakeholders
  • demonstrate a commitment to a growth-mindset approach.
  • be committed to your own professional development and the development of your peers
  • deliver lessons that are tailored to suit and meet the needs of each student, using varied and creative means to facilitate learning
  • assess and record students’ progress and provide quality feedback to support their improvement 
  • maintain a tidy and well-loved classroom that provides a safe, nurturing environment fostered through a Hygge approach of cosy and calm
  • be able to care take a curriculum area

What can we offer you?

  • happy, motivated and well-behaved children
  • a friendly, hardworking team of wonderful staff and supportive parents and governors
  • a well-designed curriculum rooted in a curiosity approach
  • policies, procedures and well-resourced classrooms which support teacher workload
