About the role

Do you care passionately about bringing learning to life for children?

Would you like to work in a school where we actively promote staff well-being?

Would you welcome the opportunity to develop your teaching skills in both EYFS and lower KS2?

We are looking for a teacher to lead our afternoon nursery provision so this job could therefore be a part time position.  However there is also the opportunity to work in the mornings providing cover in other classes.

The governors at George Street are seeking to employ a resilient and dedicated member of staff to join our team.  You will be someone who wants to be a part of our school’s teaching and learning philosophy and wants to develop your teaching as part of a caring and motivated team. If you are an experienced teacher or NQT, then George Street is the school for you. We have an exciting vacancy for a September 2019 start.

If you are someone who strives to bring learning to life through:

  • Problem Solving and deepening thinking
  • Child-led teaching and learning
  • A range of strategies to engage children and staff
  • Instilling confidence in teaching and learning
  • Active learning
  • Challenging others and yourself

Then the teaching and learning culture at George Street is designed for you. At George Street we recognise that all of our teachers and learners are individual, and we have designed a curriculum that celebrates this. We “Bring learning to Life” with creative approaches to topic themed lessons that are tailored to the children’s ideas, knowledge and understanding. We are lucky enough to be situated just off Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town High Street, one of the prettiest and most historic streets in Hertfordshire, which provides a diverse environment for learning outside the classroom.

At George Street we also care about staff well-being. Our well-being team are working hard to ensure that your work: life balance is carefully considered and that you feel an important part of the George Street team.

We are also passionate about developing future leaders in school. We celebrate achievement of teachers and ensure that every staff members’ voice counts. The school benefits from a very supportive governing body who will expect you to:

  • Continue to drive up standards in teaching and learning
  • Hold high expectations of pupil achievement and not set limits on learning
  • Provide a role model of aspirational, inspiring and enthusiastic learning for children and adults within our school
  • Show commitment to inclusive practice
  • Communicate and build effective relationships with all stakeholders
  • Adapt working practices in the spirit of continuous improvement

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.
