We will also expect you to be able to demonstrate a deep understanding of how children learn and how to translate this into high quality teaching and learning specific to the early year’s pupils

The post requires someone who is an inspirational, reflective and creative teacher with a passion to improve the life chances of our pupils and make every child feel ‘special’, with excellent classroom management and organisation skills.  A strength in phonics would be a distinct advantage and experience of mixed age classes would be desirable.
