You will be skilled at creating a stimulating environment that allows every child to achieve. The successful candidate will be a genuine team player, working closely with colleagues including our TAs, and will recognise the importance of developing a strong partnership with parents. The successful candidate will aspire to become a confident and innovative EYFS leader. This post is not suitable for ECTs.

Applications are invited from individuals who

  • Can demonstrate consistently good teaching practice and a deep understanding of the EYFSP
  • Understand the mastery approach to mathematics teaching
  • Use on-going Assessment for Learning to shape meaningful lessons
  • Believe that every child can progress and achieve
  • Have high levels of resilience, energy and enthusiasm, and have a sense of humour
