We pride ourselves as being at the heart of our community and have staff who are committed to the values of trauma informed practice.

We are looking for an aspirational, innovative and highly skilled practitioner to join our successful school.

We would like our applicants to be committed to providing the best educational opportunities for all children, demonstrate outstanding practice with high expectations of pupil attainment and behaviour, have the ability to inspire and motivate children to achieve levels of excellence, have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to work as part of a team.

Along with our SCITT (School-Centred Initial Teacher Training), School Improvement Team, Well-being Service and Resourced Provisions based in three of our schools, we are a leading educational organisation in Epping Forest.

EFSPT was formed in 2018 from a consortium of schools that had worked together for over 20 years, and are committed to collaborative working to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children and school communities.
