What skills and experience we're looking for

This is an ideal post for an ambitious and enthusiastic musician who will be able to help build further the high standard of music within our school. At Old Earth we have a tradition of great musicality and wish for this to continue.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an experienced, successful and collaborative staff team.

The successful candidate will become part of our “Creative curriculum team” and responsible for the teaching of music to pupils from Nursery to Year 6 alongside other members of our teaching team. We would like this to include, if possible, accompaniment for assemblies, carol services and shows. Our pupils are well behaved, polite, keen to learn and are all very used to a high level of music understanding.

We are looking for a musician/ singing teacher who is accomplished in piano or another instrument. They will be passionate, enthusiastic and skilled in preparing our children to take part in local events and choir competitions. We are very fortunate to have access to an experienced and accomplished pianist who currently supports our teacher with one of our weekly choirs. Our current music teacher has taught movement and music for Early Years and Key Stage 1. This would be desirable but not essential.

What the school offers its staff

  • Ongoing support from our dedicated management team.
  • Assistance from our “Creative non-core curriculum team”.
  • Access to up-to-date and engaging lesson plans from our whole school scheme of work.
  • Provision of all necessary resources to aid teaching.

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.
