School profile

Ryders Hayes School

At Ryders Hayes, we have formed a unique primary partnership to bring together the very best of primary practice, supported by equally outstanding Higher Education and research at Masters Level. We have a strong record of delivering professional development and are a Stronger Practice Hub for EYFS.

At Ryders Hayes, we strongly believe in creating a ‘best fit’ between the host school and the trainee, in the belief that they are one of the team and a potential employee.

Training will be delivered by expert facilitators, providing an outstanding 'hands-on' school-based experience. A bespoke training package for each trainee, including additional support in specialist subjects, promotes access to all aspects of school life. Where suitable vacancies arise an offer of employment at the end of the training will be made by the host school, or assistance given with gainful employment within its alliance of schools.

Our trainees feel like members of staff during their school placements; and position themselves at the forefront of education, as highly employable teachers. We are proud of our high recruitment rates and invite you to apply for this exciting course to become the outstanding teacher you aspire to be.

Primary SCITT partner for Barr Beacon SCITT

Our Walsall-based primary programme with Barr Beacon SCITT and Ryders Hayes School offers training in the age range 3-7.

You will apply to Barr Beacon SCITT and assessment days will be carried out by Barr Beacon SCITT’s Primary SCITT team at Ryders Hayes School.

You are allocated a placement school within the Walsall-based SCITT partnership. We strongly believe in creating a ‘best fit’ between you and your host school in the belief that you are one of the staff team and a potential employee.

You will be based in their main placement school within our Walsall-based partnership from September to December (Term 1) and from March to June (Term 3).

From January to March (Term 2) you will spend time in a contrasting school placement, sometimes referred to as ‘second placement’. Arrangements for the contrasting school placement are made centrally by the SCITT in a timely manner once the course has commenced. Your emerging strengths and areas of development, locality and personal circumstances are taken closely into consideration when making these decisions.

You are well-supported, developed and assessed by our expert team of mentors in the same way across all of our placement schools.

Additionally you will receive:

* Training in a diverse range of educational settings, including regular training at Ryders Hayes School from expert facilitators, providing a detailed ‘hands-on’ school-based experience.
* A bespoke training package for each trainee, including additional support in specialist subjects to promote access to all aspects of school life.
* Intensive Training and Practice weeks based at Ryders Hayes School, which are designed to hone specific areas of your teaching.
