Permanent Nursery Teacher -September 2017
Full time Permanent from September 2017
Are you committed to leading and managing a team of EYFS support staff and putting your own stamp on nursery?
A newly opened, all-through, free school are recruiting for a Nursery Teacher. The role is a permanent position starting in September 2017. In September 2016 they have over 150 primary children and over 200 secondary students. This is an exciting opportunity to work with an experienced and forward-thinking team. As a growing school there are many opportunities for development on offer.
Due to the age of the school, the numbers of pupils within the school are smaller than national average reflecting on the strong community spirit in this small Oxfordshire village. The aim of staff at the school is to know every one of their students well, providing an environment that not only allows them to achieve what they are truly capable of, but also equips them with excellent academic qualifications and a 'can do' attitude. This pathway allows students to be able to create the right pathway for themselves within higher education and the workplace.
The next stage of their development is to open a Nursery for children aged three and four in September 2017. This will be on their specialisms campus, with its exciting facilities, in a purpose-built Nursery room. It will be managed by their EYFS co-ordinator, who is one of their Reception teachers. This will be a teacher-led provision, and the Nursery Teacher will work closely alongside a Deputy Manager who will be responsible for much of the day-to-day management of the Nursery.
The school has a range of in-house facilities to aid teaching such as laboratories, a range of American and traditional sports facilities, two bespoke performance spaces, a library and a recording studio. As well as the school's own facilities, there is also the opportunity to connect students to the wider resources on site, ensuring good connections to industry and a variety of local businesses.
You will be responsible for leading and managing a team of support staff in the Nursery, aided by a Deputy Manager, and with the support of the EYFS co-ordinator. You will be able to lead others and have a strong vision of what you want to achieve for every child in your care. You will have the chance to be at the beginning of this project, creating an environment which enables all to achieve and putting your own stamp on our Nursery.
