About the role
Teacher needed for a fantastic school!
This post is most suitable for an ECT.
Ashdown Primary School in Crowborough is looking for a full-time primary class teacher to teach at our school from September 2023, in KS1 or KS2 (not early years).
We are a two form entry, split site school.
We value every child for what they are and prepare them for everything they could be.
The school has three main drivers: people, planet, potential. This means we are an eco-school, we support fairtrade and we develop our pupils and our staff to fulfil their potential (high performing staff means best provision for children). Our school offers all the support and development a teacher needs. Any teacher would thrive at this school, but particularly an ECT.
Our teachers say the following about working at our school:
• Supportive staff team with good morale
• Caring and forward thinking management
• Great children, ready to learn
• Creative and flexible curriculum
Ashdown Primary School commits and expects its staff to commit to East Sussex County Council’s Equal Opportunities policies.
Ashdown Primary School also takes its safeguarding responsibilities extremely seriously and is committed to keeping children safe. This post is subject to satisfactory references, DBS checks, and questions will be asked at interview and of referees as to the suitability of candidates to work with children.
Interviews will be held on Thursday 15th June 2023.
