We are looking for an outstanding early years practitioner to become part of our team. We are a forward- thinking school with a wealth of facilities to inspire teaching and learning and pride ourselves on having a passionate dedicated staff.
We place great importance on early education and laying foundations for the children’s future. We have an extensive school early year’s provision where children attend from two years old to the end of Reception, as well as a separate, very small staff Daycare provision beginning from 6 months of age. In the early years role, you would be working with a team within the early years to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment. We have new extensive dedicated outdoor facilitates which develop every area of learning for all age groups in the early years. The school also offers a farm, edible playground, pond and orchard on site, so we are able to provide the children with exceptional enrichment.
The ideal candidates must have a good understanding of children’s early development, be flexible in their approach, adaptable and hard working. You will need to be a well-organised person who can work independently and as part of a team and have the skills to build positive relationships with children and colleagues. We welcome candidates from private and school based provisions as well as those who are in the early stages of their career and wish to pursue this avenue following their studies.
The wellbeing of our staff is of paramount importance and we promote a healthy work-life balance. This is promoted by all staff having an ipad to enable them to work effectively to support teaching and learning as well as this aiding excellent communication. We provide staff with wellbeing days, an attendance reward scheme, have a staff gym and a staff Daycare on site.
As part of the Connect Education Trust we are strongly committed to providing high quality professional development and career progression for all staff. We are constantly reviewing our practices to ensure that our staff can focus on what matters: providing a rich environment in which children can learn and thrive. We encourage expertise and staff that supports one another to develop their own practice and to create remarkable futures for all pupils.
With easy access into central London, our school is ideal for candidates wanting to live in either inner or outer London.
In line with recent legislation, applicants must have a command of spoken English that is sufficient to effectively carry out duties of the role.
