Hazelbury Primary School is looking for an enthusiastic and inspiring Early Years Teacher for Reception or Nursery. Our school, recently judged by Ofsted as continuing to be Good, has a large and innovative early years, with a much sought after extensive outdoor learning space for children. We are forward thinking with our teaching approach and have embedded a ‘no marking’ feedback for learning policy, which enables teachers to give valuable feedback on progress, whilst maintaining a healthy work life balance!
We understand how important it is for staff and children to have access to modern technology, which is why we are a resourced Apple school - all members of staff are provided with the latest Ipads, and teachers are also provided with the latest Macbooks. Children are engaged with a creative curriculum that makes use of our performing arts studio, music zone and creative hub. Our own on-site sports coaches provide our children with quality sport provision and fantastic extra-curricular opportunities. With a farm, pond and orchard on site, we are able to provide the children with creative outdoor experiences. We also have our very own minibuses, which all staff have the opportunity to be trained to drive.
Our ethos encourages a learning journey that invites children to be great citizens of the future. Our pupil voice is strong and we have embedded values that ensure resilience and independence. Children are encouraged to have a growth mind-set and we have a focus on mindfulness for both children and staff across the school. We are part of the Enfield Learning Trust, a partnership of successful primary schools in Enfield who have a shared motto, ‘be included.’
As part of the Enfield Learning Trust we are strongly committed to providing high quality professional development and career progression for all staff. We are constantly reviewing our practices to ensure that our staff can focus on what matters: providing a rich environment in which children can learn and thrive. We are able to offer significant opportunities to work in collaboration with colleagues at Hazelbury and across the Trust. At Hazelbury, staff are able to be involved with developments within the curriculum in areas that interest them. We encourage expertise and a staff that supports one another to develop their own practice.
The well-being of our staff is of paramount importance and we promote a healthy work-life balance. As part of the Trust, all staff are given access to Perkbox- an app that provides discounts on many high street chains. We provide staff with well-being days, an attendance reward scheme, as well as giving all employees access to a support hub. Hazelbury has its own staff gym on site, as well as access to yoga sessions for all staff.
Hazelbury provide opportunities to ensure that we value hard work and dedication. Ofsted commended this during their inspection, “You have put a strong emphasis on staff well-being and professional development”.
With easy access into central London, our school is ideal for candidates wanting to live in either inner or outer London.
In line with recent legislation, applicants must have a command of spoken English that is sufficient to effectively carry out duties of the role.
