  • Has a working knowledge of the EYFS and Ofsted requirements for the specified age range.
  • Is able, with minimal support, to effectively communicate with parents and members of the community, plus establish and maintain working relationships with co-workers, school staff and other stakeholders across our entire age range.

What the school offers its staff

We have 3 early years’ settings at the Academy. All providing a wealth of activities and experiences throughout the day both indoors and out. Our Early Years Team provides a safe, caring, inclusive, active learning environment for our pupils.

Further details about the role

If you have the biggest smile, one that engages and makes every child feel comfortable in your company. If throughout the day you are happy to take on varied roles such as being a dinosaur, a builder, a performer, a story teller, a musician, and much much more! If you have the ability to sing (not necessarily in tune) but, in front of a crowd of tiny humans!

And finally, if you are prepared to engage in lots of fun activities and get messy, you may be the person we are looking for.

Have you got the skills needed to inspire and enrich a young person’s life, creating foundations that will guide them through their lives? Use this opportunity to show how passionate you are about childcare and demonstrate this in a positive and welcoming environment.

Commitment to safeguarding

Biggleswade Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the DBS (Disclosure Barring Service).

We wholly believe in the tangible benefits of an age 2-13 structure, minimising the need to change schools, and the family environment that a through school engenders. The through model can work to outstanding effect, particularly with regard to pastoral care, student welfare and the quality of relationships between each member of the school community. Our skills and experience in these areas are crucial and, alongside our innovative approaches and the wide-ranging opportunities we provide for our pupils, help create our unique ethos. Our aim is to inspire all children with a love of learning and to create special and happy memories of their time with us. Children learn best when they feel safe to take on challenges, are interested and feel valued. Learning is celebrated and openly admired.
