Currently the role is not class based but does involve some cover teaching across Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1. This is a key role in our leadership team and a chance to lead a larger than average EYFS and Key Stage 1 provision.

We are a Read Write Inc. school and are proud of our high quality phonics teaching. The successful candidate will be expected to lead early reading and phonics teaching across EYFS and Key Stage 1 and provide support and advice to secure strong reading transition into Key Stage 2.

The successful candidate will support and work with governors and the leadership team to contribute to the school’s strategic direction, impacting on pupil outcomes and whole school development. Candidates will have experience of managing a wide range of staff and working collaboratively with parents and carers.
