Due to expansion of our leadership team, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an aspiring future leader and outstanding class teacher to join the SLT of our large primary school and nursery. This position ideally starts in summer term 2020, but an autumn term start may be considered for the right candidate.

Brightlingsea Primary School and Nursery aims to be an inclusive school that enables every child to reach their full potential and overcome barriers to learning. We are a community school with a three form intake, and believe in working in partnership with children's families, other agencies and local schools.

This is primarily a class teaching role, with dedicated management time to support the successful candidate in fulfilling the role. Additional responsibilities include phase leadership and staff professional development.

You will join an experienced and supportive extended leadership team of Head teacher, Deputy Head teacher and subject Hub leaders.

Visits are strongly advised and warmly welcomed.

We are a large Primary School, taking children from 2 to 11 years, with a three form entry and approximately 750 children on roll. This is an exciting time for our school and we are looking to further improve outcomes for our children and families. As a large school we are able to offer some exciting opportunities for staff: we recognise the importance of professional development and believe in investing in staff to help us to achieve our vision.

We are an inclusive school and strive to deliver a fully accessible social and academic curriculum. Our aim is for all pupils to achieve their full potential. We provide a welcoming, caring and supportive environment, which allows children to develop socially, emotionally and academically. All our staff play an important part in children's development. Parents are actively encouraged to take a vested interest in the school, so that together, school, parents and children can work together in partnership.
