Early Years Lead

At Alderman Pounder we are dedicated to providing the best quality education in a nurturing and caring environment. Our school is on a journey and we looking for someone who is dynamic, enthusiastic, positive and passionate to join our team.

We are seeking an amazing Early Years Lead who is an inspirational, innovative, resilient, and motivated leader. The successful candidate will be a team player with strong interpersonal and organisational skills, who leads by example. We celebrate creativity and so you will be a forward-thinking teacher in your approach to teaching and learning who expects and maintains the highest standards of pupil achievement. We love to have fun, and particularly love to dress up for special events and whole school (or class based) occasions. Imagination is key in the early years, and so given the resources found in our mud kitchen, you can inspire children to prepare a banquet fit for royalty, or serve the entire crew of a space ship on a journey to Mars! You can turn a simple walk around our school site into a journey into far off lands, where children will discover strange, new creatures, and where every child is an explorer who is eager to learn!

This is a fantastic opportunity to start your leadership journey with a nurturing and supportive senior leadership team who will offer mentoring, coaching and access to further leadership development through NPQs. As we are part of the Flying High Partnership, you will have access to EYFS networks and the expertise of the Lead Teachers for EYFS for mentoring and support.  Thus, allowing you to ensure the early years phase goes from strength to strength ensuring the very best outcomes for our children.

For more information please see our advert here, job description and person specification.  An application form can be found here.

We strongly recommend that you visit the school prior to submitting your application. A socially distanced tour of the school and opportunity to ask any questions will be arranged. Please contact the office to book a time.
