Required September 2024

Main Pay Scale/Upper Pay Scale & TLR 2a


St Edward’s is a very special place with a distinctive Christian ethos.  Our staff, parents, and our governors are very proud of our school with its excellent team of dedicated teachers, support staff and its enthusiastic and caring children.  All come together to create a lively and engaging atmosphere in which to work, teach and learn.  Whilst we are inclusive in appointing staff of all faiths and none, we require staff to uphold and participate in our school’s Christian life.

At St Edward’s, our staff turnover is very low, so this is an exciting opportunity to join our school team. Following the promotion of one of our Middle Leaders to a role in another school in the diocese, we are looking to appoint a Class Teacher to join our teaching staff who has a passion for Early Years and a willingness to lead our Reception team.

We want someone who has very high expectations of themselves and the children they work with.  We have excellent professional development opportunities as a school. This year, all of our teaching staff are completing the NPQLT (National Postgraduate Qualification in Leading Teaching). A number of staff have also completed the NPQSL and the NPQH. This role would be a great opportunity for a current Early Years teacher/leader who is looking for a new opportunity, or a teacher looking for their first step into middle leadership. Wherever you are on your journey, you can be assured of the support and encouragement of our leadership team.

As a school we are passionate about supporting the wellbeing of our staff. Our wellbeing charter can be found on our website. We also understand and experience the benefits of a part-time members of staff, enabling them to commit to both work and wider life responsibilities. If you are looking to apply for this, and a requesting a part-time role, please state this in your personal statement.

If you would like to find out more about the role, or if you would like to visit our warm and welcoming school, please do not hesitate to contact David Kendrick-White (PA to the Head Teacher), who will put us in touch or arrange a time, either by telephone (on 01708 745971) or by email (contact@stedwardsva.net).
