Our 4A vision: Ambition, Attitude, Achievement, Action

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and dynamic practitioner committed to providing high quality early years experiences for young children. We are looking for a teacher who is able to teach to in a creative way, following the early years teaching philosophy but also ensuring that come the end of the year, the children are ready for the step up and transition to KS1.

We place the development of communication skills at the heart of all we do as our children need this to be at the core of their learning journey. We use a ‘Talk for Writing approach where children learn stories off by heart and then innovate their own. Training will be provided.

We are looking for a teacher who is an advocate for rich outdoor play experiences that reflect the natural world and wider environment. We have an excellent outdoor area that we want to continue to utilise in the best way for the children.

We provide outstanding professional development for staff including working with national trainers for Maths and English (including Pie Corbett) as well as opportunities to work alongside our family of schools in Birmingham.
