• a willingness to grow with the new school under the guidance and support of a Head of School and Executive Principal.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate an excellent track record of excellent/outstanding teaching ability, excellent understanding of the EYFS framework and be thoroughly committed to equal opportunities and inclusion. 

We are able to offer:

• a strong vision of educational excellence, character formation and spiritual insight;

Due to the nature of this role, it will be necessary for the appropriate level of criminal record disclosure to be undertaken. In making your application, it is essential you disclose whether you have any pending charges, convictions, bind-overs or cautions and, if so, for which offences. This post will be exempt from the provisions of Section 4 (2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Therefore, applicants are not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are ‘spent’ under the provision of the Act, and, in the event of the employment being taken up; any failure to disclose such convictions will result in dismissal or disciplinary action. The fact that a pending charge, conviction, bind-over or caution has been recorded against you will not necessarily debar you from consideration for this appointment.
