Job summary

Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge is a small school but with a big heart. Since joining the Maiden Erlegh Trust in 2018 the school has seen a marked change in its fortunes and is now known for its calm classrooms, strong focus on behaviour and well-developed teaching and learning. Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge was recently part of a successful bid by the Maiden Erlegh Trust to become one of only 22 behaviour hubs supporting Schools nationally.

There are weekly CPD sessions that focus on pedagogy along with regular whole school CPD meetings as the school works hard to develop itself on a journey to outstanding. The staff body is small but highly committed and staff absence rates are incredibly low. Whilst our 2017 OFSTED report records an “inadequate” rating we have recently written to OFSTED to encourage an inspection, so confident are we of a “Good” rating.

Professional development is a strength here, thanks to our Teaching School. We offer a flexible CPD programme which staff can tailor to their own needs which includes coaching and training for new entrants to the profession and to support career returners. We are very happy to discuss flexible working arrangements including part-time working and job-sharing.

The site is well spaced out and set in a semi-rural location surrounded by farmland, there is plenty of parking on site and the village of Sonning Common is served by the number 25 bus route from central Reading

The Trust reserves the right to interview and appoint before the closing date.

Maiden Erlegh Trust is an Ethical Leadership Pathfinder organisation and we are committed to safeguarding, equality and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We are also committed to having the highest expectations of pupil/students and staff, and supporting everyone to reach their full potential. All employees of the school and Trust are expected to share these commitments. All posts require satisfactory employment checks and references and a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. All Leadership roles will require a Section 128 check
