Early Years Educator, Peckham

Job description

Teaching Personnel is excited to present an opportunity for an Early Years Educator to join a wonderfully supportive one-form entry primary school in Peckham for a full-time role. The school is a charming Church of England Primary School located just a five minute walk from Peckham Rye Station (Overground, Southern, Southeastern, Thameslink). Their most recent Ofsted inspection confirmed the school continues to be Good (May 2017)

The school has a mission to create a calm but exciting place to be where children feel safe and special. This is embodied in the school motto 'be the best I can be' where both children and staff are encouraged to be confident enough to make choices and be proud of what they do. They seek to nurture every member of the school community to develop their skills and abilities in a positive and ordered learning environment.

As a CofE School they wish for children to grow in the Christian faith but they also encourage an understanding of and a respect for other faiths. Their approach to relationships is based on Jesus' command to forgive and love our fellows. Their approach to achievement and the provision of opportunities for development is based on Jesus' statement that he came to offer 'life in all its fullness'. They firmly believe that a child's education must include the widest range of opportunities whether artistic, sporting, cultural, recreational or social.

Staff across the school have very good relationships with pupils and there is a welcoming positive learning environment. The school has a culture where pupils are encouraged to seek support and guidance, allowing them to feel comfortable sharing both successes and struggles.

The leadership team are quick to induct and train new members of staff, creating a strong team spirit and high staff morale. There is a real culture of collaboration with teachers and teaching assistants working closely together to share skills and knowledge as well as providing support. Leaders are given sufficient guidance to ensure their roles can be performed to a high standard and school leaders have invested substantially in a planned programme of professional development for all staff.

If this sounds like the right place for you to take the next steps in your career, the school are hoping to interview as soon as possible. Shortlisting criteria include:

  • CACHE/NVQ Level 3
  • At least a year of experience in an EYFS environment
  • A friendly personality
  • A positive approach to teamwork (essential for this one-form entry environment)

All applicants will require the appropriate qualification and training for this role. For teacher roles, we require a formally recognised teaching qualification. For Support staff our minimum requirement is GCSE English & Maths (A-C) or equivalent.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay.
