About the role
At the heart of St. Luke’s is a strong values system, which promotes diversity and inclusion in its actions and not just in words. It is a creative and innovative school, which aims to give each member of its community a voice in its development and growth. Through in-house research and professional development through coaching, it seeks to empower staff and children to shape the curriculum, the teaching and learning approaches and the environment. We continually aim to see the school experience through the eyes of the children and to challenge ‘received wisdom’ in relation to education. We aim to stay true to what we believe in whatever the pressures from outside. We very much welcome new members of staff who will add to the diversity of ideas and dialogue around teaching and learning and enrich our learning community.
We offer a career development structure which builds on your strengths and passions and gives you the freedom to enquire and take risks.
