Eden Primary opened in September 2011. We are now approaching our 13th birthday and have a flourishing and dynamic Jewish primary school in a beautiful setting and building, designed and opened in 2012 to create a learning environment conducive to achieving the values and vision that we are committed to at Eden.

Eden Primary is a school that incorporates creativity, inclusion and outdoor education in a dynamic integrated curriculum. Jewish and General Studies are often integrated at Eden but can be taught discretely. Some knowledge of Judaism and Hebrew is therefore an advantage but is definitely not required. The school is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to educating young children.
We are an ambitious school and are keen to find teachers with a passion for teaching and learning to complement and build our team. They will be caring individuals with considerable drive and an enthusiasm for our inclusive ethos. They will be a strong classroom practitioner preferably with teaching experience but newly qualified teachers will be considered. They will have high expectations of children’s abilities and behaviour and a passion for high quality, creative teaching and learning. Eden is an inclusive school and welcomes a number of children with special and complex needs supported by our Inclusion Lead and significant expertise in these areas.
