• Establish effective relationships with parents.

• Demonstrate a positive outlook and a resilient nature.

• Demonstrate excellent inter-personal and leadership skills as well as the ability to inspire and challenge colleagues.

• Demonstrate excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour.

In return we can offer you:

• Plenty of opportunities for professional development, within our school and our Trust. We offer NPQML and NPQSL, as well as opportunities for coaching and mentoring in school and within our network of schools.

• Opportunities to develop your leadership skills by working alongside experienced leaders and Early Years advisers.

• Working with other colleagues within our local cluster and outstanding partner primary school.

• An individual CPD pathway, to develop practice, and help you reach the next stage in your career.

• A team dedicated to innovative teaching methods and implementing current research.

• At least 3 additional PPA days per year. 

• An opportunity to work in a charitable organisation that is focused on improving the lives of disadvantaged children; the core value of the Trust is “the best in everyone”
