What skills and experience we're looking for

Churchend Primary Academy is seeking to appoint a Nursery Practitioner to join our established and dedicated team.

At Churchend we offer an exciting, broad and balanced Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum that promotes children’s emotional, social, physical and intellectual needs. We believe that children learn best through playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside. This underpins the development of qualities which empower children with the sense that they can progress and achieve.

The successful candidate will be responsible for enhancing the education and learning, teaching, curriculum provision and pastoral care within the nursery. This will ensure that every child becomes the best possible version of themselves.

The Role

  • Enable children to achieve age related expectations.
  • Be an exciting practitioner with a passion for an engaging curriculum.
  • Support the emotional development of each and every child
  • Work closely with Teaching Assistants and the Senior Leadership Team to raise attainment and progress
  • Address challenges strategically, collaboratively and holistically to enable each child to meet their full potential
  • Our ideal candidate has excellent classroom management skills, is highly organised, is a team player and has strong behaviour management skills

The rewards:

  • Become part of a friendly, supportive team who encourage creativity and innovation.
  • We have an approachable and experienced senior leadership team who are willing to support all aspects of your professional development, whether as an NQT at the start of your career or as a more experienced teacher looking for career development
  • The benefit of doing a role like this is it feels good and gives you a sense of hard-won achievement and progress. There are also some outstanding rewards – in fact, our salary and benefits package is one of the best in the sector.

    It includes:
  • A highly competitive salary
  • Full school holidays
  • Teacher pension scheme or a range of flexible pension options to suit personal circumstances (where applicable)
