About the role
High Hurstwood CEP School is located in a beautiful part of the Weald countryside. We are a popular school with an excellent local reputation. We were judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted (February 2017) and Outstanding in our SIAMS Inspection (September 2017). We have benefited from being a Strategic Partner of St Marks Teaching School and have a track record of working closely with other schools in the Wealden Education Improvement Partnership. We have the highest expectations of staff and offer a range of CPD opportunities in order to further develop teaching and leadership skills.
We are looking for an excellent classroom practitioner to teach in one of our mixed-age Key Stage 2 classrooms. Please note that as we are a Church of England Controlled school the successful candidate will be expected to be fully supportive of the Christian ethos of our school.
The successful candidate will:
- Be passionate about teaching and learning and ensuring every child succeeds;
- Have high expectations;
- Have enthusiasm and dedication;
- Be highly motivated, flexible and a team player;
- Have experience of teaching across Key Stage 2.
Candidates will be expected to have a good understanding of how ICT can be used to enhance teaching and learning, and will be expected to take on the role of Subject Leader for Computing. It would be desirable, but not essential for candidates to be able to support the teaching of Modern Foreign Languages in KS2.
We can offer the successful candidate:
- enthusiastic and well behaved children
- a friendly and supportive staff team
- excellent opportunities for further professional development
- a well-resourced school, situated in beautiful countryside.
Please note that this post is for candidates who are on Main Pay Scale only. The post would suit a recently qualified teacher, who is looking to further develop their skills as a Subject Leader.
