In our latest full Ofsted inspection, our EYFS phase was graded ‘Outstanding’ – something that we agree with wholeheartedly and are very proud of. We have a very strong, dedicated and experienced team and their collective efforts have been immense.
The successful candidate will have a passion for EYFS and Year 1 and have proven experience in this area or experience to build upon for this next step in their professional career. The appointed candidate will form part of the school leadership team.
We believe strongly in continuous provision in EYFS and building from this in Year 1, developing the whole child, building strong relations with parents/carers, using Tapestry to evidence the fun and creative learning journey, using Letters and Sounds as our chosen phonic program and, very importantly, providing a fun, safe and inspiring learning environment.
We would like a teacher leader that is keen to embed existing strong practice, is familiar with the new EYFS curriculum, Development Matters, Baseline Assessment and build upon it further alongside the existing team.
The role carries a leadership TLR and one leadership day per week to support and monitor phase and whole school improvement.
