Required from 1st September 2019

Be part of something amazing!

We are looking for an inspirational, innovative, resilient and motivated leader. A team player with strong interpersonal skills and organisational skills. A creative and forward thinking teacher in their approach to teaching and learning who expects and maintains the highest standards of pupil achievement. You will preferably have a little bit of quirkiness: if a child requests that you be a captain of a pirate ship, you will be the very best pirate captain you can be! The ability to sing in tune is not necessary, however the ability to sing out of tune in front of a crowd is essential. As is dancing to all types of music! Given just some sticks and leaves, you could create something amazing that sparks the imagination…

This is a fantastic opportunity to start your leadership journey with a nurturing and supportive senior leadership team who will offer mentoring, coaching and access to further leadership development through NPQs. As we are part of the Flying High Partnership, you will have access to EYFS networks and the expertise of the Lead teachers for EYFS for mentoring and support. Thus allowing you to ensure the early years phase goes from strength to strength ensuring the very best outcomes for our children.
