Early Years Leader job summary

We are a successful and happy school, looking for a dynamic EYFS Phase Leader to join our team. This is the role for an Early Years Lead who has a laser sharp focus on providing excellence for all pupils.

Dollis Primary was created by the merger in April 2019 of Infant and Junior schools that have shared a site for decades. You will be the Early Years Leader: Phonics and Early Reading Lead while working alongside our Leadership team to deliver sustainably improved pupil outcomes as rapidly as possible.

This is a middle leader post within the school’s Leadership Group. The post holder will lead the Pre-School, Nursery and Reception year group within the school, and contribute to initiatives to improve/develop the school’s response to Government legislation and children’s services guidelines. The post holder is accountable to the Headteacher and Deputy Headteachers.

You must share the Headteacher’s philosophy that our duty to pupils to ensure they achieve their full potential is sacrosanct. Dollis Primary has a challenging intake with high EAL levels and significant deprivation. Despite the legacy of Covid-19, we are totally committed to the ambition that, when children leave our school, they are primed for the next stage of their learning, having grown within a nurturing, supportive community.

We can offer you high quality professional development, well-being support and health days and fantastic pupils with a thirst for knowledge. So, if have a proven track record of Early Years Leadership and improved outcomes, this is the school for you!
