Early Years Foundation Stage Leader
Salary: L1 – L5 (£41,065- £45,319) pending pay award
Required from Easter 2021

• Are you an experienced Early Years Teacher ready for the step up into an exciting leadership role in our Foundation Stage provision here at Cleves Cross Primary and Nursery School?

• Would you like to develop your leadership skills in our purpose-built nursery classroom which fully complements our already outstanding provision?

• Have you the vision, commitment and enthusiasm to help us to continue to develop and deliver the best early years provision for every child?

For this EYFS Leader role, you will be an innovative, experienced teacher ready for a more senior role, or a current dedicated EYFS Leader who has more to offer and who can raise expectations through the standard of your own teaching. You will possess the skills to motivate those around you and have an inclusive approach to teaching. You will have the determination and drive to make sure all your pupils are actively involved in their learning and are guided and supported well, to ensure they become the best they can be.

In this exciting EYFS Leader position you will be managing the progression of the EYFS phase here at Cleves Cross and working with colleagues at our other Trust school, Rosa Street Primary, in Spennymoor. You will be leading curriculum and pupil developments and sharing creative and inspirational ideas in order to lead staff to outstanding professional practice. This role will involve close working with the Senior Leadership Team, and you will also be expected to contribute to school developments and lead by example, teaching to a high standard. Outstanding communication skills and the ability to build positive relationships with parents and families are essential in this key role in our school.

Cleves Cross Primary School is a popular school with excellent facilities both indoors and outdoors, with grounds that are fully used to enhance the experience of all of our pupils. We are a Rights Respecting and Eco School and our ethos is reflected in our commitment to these values. We want someone who has a good understanding of these values and who can promote and enhance them from the very start of our children’s time here at school. Our nursery provides flexible provision for 3-4 year olds, and managing places, curriculum delivery and resources is critical to the ongoing success of the setting.

As an Academy within Cleves Cross Learning Trust, we also offer development opportunities to work with other schools and colleagues on a wider stage as part of our school’s commitment to educational development.

Visits to school are welcomed but are limited to one person at a time. Please schedule a visit, which must be limited to no longer than half an hour, by contacting Mrs. Hardy or Mrs. Bowman at the school office by telephone: 01740 651599 .
