One of our long serving EYFS teachers is expecting her first child and we are therefore excited to be looking for an inspiring Reception Teacher to join our two form-entry school. The successful applicant will be part of our friendly, well established EYFS team initially on a one-year maternity contract.

Our Early Years curriculum highlights the importance of communication and social skills. Through a mix of adult and child led learning we provide exciting and creative opportunities in all areas of the curriculum.

Trauma Perceptive Practice is integral to our whole school ethos. We treat all adults and children with hope not hopelessness, compassion not blame and connection not disconnection.
