The Cornerstone Academy Trust is responsible for Broadclyst, Westclyst and Yeo Valley Primary Schools. With the existing Broadclyst Nursery going from strength to strength, and the brand-new Nursery at Westclyst Primary School opening in September, this is an exciting time to join the Trust.

We are recruiting an extended team to help deliver outstanding early years provision at both locations. Initially opening as a 40-place setting, the Westclyst Nursery will eventually grow to accommodate 60 children per session. We already offer wrap around provision from 8am until 6pm at Broadclyst, and this will be replicated at Westclyst. We also have ambitions to offer an all year-round service, not just term time only. Both settings will offer education from 2 years old.

Therefore, we are seeking to recruit a dedicated and professional Deputy Nursery Leader to work with and alongside our Nursery Leader and the Early Years team to support children in all areas of the curriculum. The successful candidate will have additional responsibilities specifically around: the continuous provision, group teaching time, timetabling and an added staff management responsibility. We are looking for a minimum of 3 days per week, but welcome applications from those seeking 4 or 5 days too.

Due to the increased responsibility that this role requires we will be ideally looking for applicants with a level 4 qualification (e.g. equivalent to NVQ 4 or above, or a degree), as well as experience in leadership roles within the Early Years.

The position is permanent and will commence in September 2019. Working hours start at 8.30am, finishing at 3.30pm, with a 30-minute lunch break. The core role is term time only plus an additional two weeks including the five non-pupil days, but we are keen to know if you would also be interested in any all-year round work should we be able to expand the Nursery provision to operate out of term time during the school holidays. We would like to employ flexible people who could easily work at both Nurseries, but this is not mandatory.

The actual salary will be adjusted to reflect the hours per week and the weeks per year. The pay scale allows for progression within the role in line with our appraisal and professional development processes. Starting salary will depend of experience. There is an option of joining the local government pension scheme, benefitting from a cycle to work scheme and a health benefits package.

Visits to Broadclyst are welcome by prior arrangement, unfortunately we are unable to offer Westclyst visits at this time, while the building is completed.

We are looking for the candidate to start in September and will therefore be interviewing during the holiday period as and when suitable candidates apply.        

An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check is required for these posts. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
