This post is covered by the Childcare Disqualification Regulations 2018.
The school will need to ensure that they are not knowingly employing a person who is disqualified under the 2018 Regulations in connection with relevant childcare provision. Accordingly, the successful candidate will be required to demonstrate to the school, by completing a self-declaration form as part of the pre-employment checks process, that they have not been disqualified under the 2018 Regulations.
If the preferred candidate is found to be disqualified under the 2018 Regulations, the offer of employment will be subject to the application by the preferred candidate to Ofsted for a waiver and the receipt of a waiver from Ofsted.
About the role
St Michael's is a village school with a big sense of community, founded on our Christian Values of Love, Honesty, Forgiveness and Respect. Our aim is to inspire every learner through high quality, interactive and stimulating contexts. The school is in the picturesque village of Playden, which is close to the ancient Cinque Port town of Rye in East Sussex. We believe this, and our school setting provides many unique learning experiences. As a result, we have a school full of enthusiastic children and staff who cannot wait to share what makes St Michaels's special.
The school entered into a partnership with Brede Primary in September 2023 and both schools are working together to share resources, expertise and workload. We are looking to appoint a Key Stage 1 class teacher from January 2023 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to join our friendly, passionate team. This is an exciting time to be joining St Michael's with a host of professional development opportunities available as we develop our partnership.
If you are interested in working with our friendly, welcoming team, please make an appointment to have a look around.
