This is a unique post allowing the successful candidate to bring EYFS teaching strategies into Year 1. Much freedom will be given to design the daily routines and learning opportunities ensuring the children learn in ways that match their age and level of development. As in Early Years, our Year 1 children learn through investigation, independent learning and play, with teachers underpinning activities with the National Curriculum objectives for Year 1. We have had much success with this approach and are looking for someone to help continue our journey.

We seek to employ an enthusiastic and innovative individual to help us continue to raise standards in teaching and learning through a comprehensive understanding of how pupils learn, enabling our children to make rapid and sustained progress. Newly Qualified Teachers, as well as their more experienced colleagues, are equally welcome. 

Hermitage is a popular and expanding school in the heart of Uxbridge and is close to major transport links (London Underground and M25/40). Our latest Ofsted report in July 2014 graded us as ‘a good school’ but we are determined to improve on this, developing our school into a beacon of excellence.

We can offer you exceptional facilities in our brand new learning environment, enthusiastic, motivated pupils, ongoing professional development and a supportive and collaborative team ethos.

The successful candidate will:

  • be an excellent practitioner with a clear commitment to the highest standards of teaching and learning, including the use of ICT
  • have a clear understanding of the importance of ongoing, formative assessment
  • have the ability to motivate and inspire children through their learning journey
  • have high expectations of all children
  • work well as part of a team
  • be keen to develop skills and experience and share these with other staff

Visits to the school are welcome and are warmly encouraged. Please contact Jo Smallwood (School Manager) on 01895 234871 to make arrangements.
