Job summary

 Krishna Avanti Primary School in Leicester (part of the Avanti Schools Trust) is seeking to appoint a Class Teacher for 2021. 

 Avanti schools are Hindu-designated faith schools. However, the Classroom Teacher at Krishna Avanti School will not need to be from any specific faith background; applications are welcome from practitioners of any faith and from those of none. They will, however, be expected to be in full sympathy with the unique ethos and vision of the School. 

 The school has 428 children on role and has an inclusive ethos rooted in the teachings of Krishna Chaitanya but welcomes pupils and staff of all faiths and abilities. 

 This is a wonderful opportunity to help further develop a growing and innovative school, which will be shaped by three key elements for both students and staff: 

 •   Educational excellence 

•   Character formation 

•   Spiritual insight 

 We are looking for someone who: 

 •    is aspiring to become, if not already, an excellent classroom teacher; 

•    is flexible, enthusiastic and willing to share ideas; 

•    is committed to supporting and enhancing the school's spiritual ethos; 

•    is resourceful and dynamic; 

•    is committed to safeguarding the welfare of all young people. 

We are able to offer: 

 •    a strong vision of Educational Excellence, Character Formation and Spiritual Insight; 

•    enthusiastic, motivated and friendly children; 

•    a committed and motivated staff team; 

•    an attractive working environment; 

•    supportive parents; 

•    great opportunities for professional development. 

  Selection Process 

 Krishna Avanti Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and requires all staff, members of the School Stakeholder Committee and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful candidates are required to have a DBS check. 

 We welcome applications from both men and women of all ages from any background and from candidates with disabilities. This position is not suitable for a job share. 

 The closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 21st June 2021 at 12 noon. 

 Applications can be downloaded at www.avanti.org.uk/careers 

 Please send your completed application from by e-mail by the closing date above to careers@avanti.org.uk 

 Any appointment subsequently made will be subject to the receipt of satisfactory references and other pre-employment checks.

About Krishna Avanti Primary School

Krishna Avanti Primary School is a Hindu-faith Free School for boys and girls that opened in September 2011. We are at full capacity with 420 pupils. We belong to a family of schools under the umbrella of the Avanti Schools Trust, an organisation which strives for educational excellence, character development and a growing spiritual awareness for all their young people, and the designated religious authority is the iFoundation. Both the Trust and the religious authority are inspired by and draw upon the teachings of Krishna Chaitanya, part of the same religious tradition as ISKCON, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. This means that the nature of Collective Worship and Religious Studies will be broadly reflective of the practices and teachings of ISKCON. The Trust and religious authority are independent legal entities and they may choose to collaborate with ISKCON in instances which will benefit the Avanti schools.
