Are you a proactive, enthusiastic teacher with a passion for the Early Years? Do you believe in our philosophy of "One Childhood, one Chance"? If so, Chilton Primary School has an exciting opportunity!
We are looking for a leader of Early Years. The post is for a Reception class teacher who will also be responsible for leading our Reception Team. Chilton offers a vibrant and creative Early Years setting filled with fantastic children. Our Reception team of class teachers and teaching assistants plan and work together to ensure that our children get the best start at school. We nurture and challenge our children to ensure that they learn how to be great learners.
This post would be suitable for candidates with existing leadership experience or someone looking to take their next steps in school leadership. You must be able to demonstrate your experience of leading school initiatives and your impact on teaching and learning. One of our Assistant Heads is currently responsible for leading the Early Years and so support and guidance in the handover of duties would be our priority.
Chilton is dedicated to continued professional development and we will offer you induction and ongoing training enabling you to become a truly exceptional teacher and leader. Our leadership and staff teams are welcoming and extremely supportive and as part of the Viking Academy Trust, we offer collaborative working beyond a Reception team.
Ideally, we are looking for a January start date but we will be flexible for the right candidate!
