- Working closely with other SLT members to develop the pastoral work of the school;
- Leading by example as an excellent teacher; delivering high quality teaching and learning, with a strong understanding of the curriculum;
- Creating a warm, welcoming and stimulating environment where our children are inspired;
- Being a highly inclusive practitioner, with a commitment to meeting the needs of all groups of learners and having a willingness to go the extra mile;
- Building effective relationships with our children, their families, staff and other stakeholders.

In return, we can offer:
- A commitment to professional development whatever your career stage;
- Children who display positive attitudes and want to learn;
- A friendly and supportive school community where parents, staff and children work together well;
- A popular and successful school, where our team works together to achieve the best possible outcomes and educational experiences for our children.

This is an exciting opportunity, initially based in Year 5/6, for an energetic, committed and creative teacher to join our strong and experienced teaching team and develop as a school leader.
