· Spacious classroom environments and plentiful outdoor space for learning including a ‘wild area’;

· Parents who are keen to support their children’s education;

· ‘Perkbox’ membership giving you access to over 270 exclusive discounts and freebies and providing personalised support through an Employee Assistance Programme.

We are looking for a great teacher who:

· exudes a passion for learning and teaching;

· enthuses and inspires children to be the best they can be;

· reflects and seeks learning opportunities;

· is a team player willing to go above and beyond;

· demonstrates emotional intelligence.

For the leadership opportunity, in addition to the above, we are looking for a leader who:

· is a humble role model to staff and children;

· shows integrity and loyalty;
