  • have excellent organisational skills
  • be focused on building strong professional relationships

  • be committed to the happiness, well-being, self-esteem and progress of everyone at the school
  • show respect and promote the school’s ethos and CHARACTER values 
  • demonstrate the ability to fulfil all aspects of the role, with confidence, through the medium of English.

At Denefield School we can offer you excellent CPD within an environment where we all work together to achieve our shared ambitions for our students.  This opportunity is open to both NQTs and experienced teachers.  If appropriate, to enable the successful candidate to be included in our induction process, the appointment may be made with effect from the middle of July 2018.
