High Beeches Primary School - Making learning an adventure


This is an exciting opportunity to join either the Early Years, KS1 or KS2 teams in our thriving, outstanding (OFSTED March 2017) primary school.

About Us

High Beeches is a vibrant two-form entry primary school, situated on the eastern side of Harpenden.  We are highly aspirational for our pupils and our distinctive and challenging, creative curriculum enables our pupils to make very good progress.  Our well established school values are central to the school’s work.  Our pupils are highly engaged and their families are supportive and involved in their children's learning and development.

We have a stable, friendly and supportive staff team and expect you to share our commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children.

About the Role

We are looking for 2 inspirational teachers to be responsible for a class in KS2 and a class in either Reception or KS1 from September 2021, initially to cover colleagues on maternity leave for the academic year, but with the possibility of a permanent position in the near future.  Working alongside the teacher of the parallel class, each will be responsible for ensuring that the curriculum is challenging and engaging and helps our pupils make excellent progress to and beyond year group or key stage expectations.

This post provides:

  • a commitment to professional development and the opportunity for career progression/a leadership role for a suitable candidate.
  • high levels of mentoring and support for newly qualified teachers and those in the early stages of their career.
  • opportunities to develop pedagogy and leadership skills by working closely with colleagues and school leaders on the continuing development of the school and by partnership working with other local schools.
  • a pleasant working environment with high quality resources and well planned provision, working within a supportive and collaborative team.

About You

The posts are suitable for newly qualified teachers, those in the early stages of their career; or for candidates with more experience.  You should have recent experience of teaching or training in the relevent key stage and may have experience of other phases.

If you are a creative and reflective practitioner, with high expectations for children’s achievement, if you believe in working together to make a real difference for the next generation, if you are looking for a new challenge and want to be part of something special, then we would love to meet you and find out more about you.
