Early Years Leader – Full Time (flexible working patterns will be considered)

Are you an outstanding teacher with proven leadership qualities?

We are looking for a visionary and enthusiastic leader of Early Years to take our good provision

(70 place Nursery and 45 place Reception classes) to the next level of its development.

The successful candidate will enjoy reaching the highest levels of success whilst creating innovative approaches to Early Years education with our talented children, within a very supportive community of children, parents and professionals.

The successful candidate will be a member of our leadership team, and will therefore be taking part in significant strategic, long term decisions for the school. The candidate will teach in one of our reception classes and will be released for leadership time each week.

Houghton Regis Primary School is a warm, welcoming and growing school, including a Nursery, with approximately 380 children on roll. At Houghton Regis Primary School, we believe that every child matters every day: childhood is not a dress rehearsal and our priority is for our pupils to love learning through an exceptional curriculum which is exciting and constantly developing.

We provide a happy, safe and positive environment, which nurtures confidence, motivation, independence and personal success for all pupils. We are focused on the development of the whole child and our pupils’ progress and well-being is our core purpose at all times.

We strongly recommend that you visit our school and meet the Headteacher for an informal conversation. To arrange a visit, please contact the school on 01582 867487 or email office@houghtonregisprimary.co.uk.
