Our school seeks an enthusiastic and experienced teacher to join the leadership team. The role takes in consideration responsibility for leading the Y0–3 junior teaching team – particularly in the key areas of curriculum leadership through an integrated approach woven through literacy and numeracy. This role also includes responsibility for junior SENCO – within school support – and junior EOTC programmes. 

There are 3 classrooms within the Y0–3 junior school. The year level for this position is subject to negotiation as we seek the best-fit person to maintain the momentum and success of the junior school especially around transition into and across the school. 

A second role is also being advertised fixed-term in the junior school as a result of significant roll growth over the past 2 years. Our projected roll for 2020 currently sits at 120 students.

This is an exciting time to be entering our school and the role represents an excellent opportunity to grow in your capacity as a leader. A successful candidate would possess a sound understanding of NZC and its application in the classroom, have strengths in interpersonal relationships and be someone who seeks to 'up-build' the capabilities and strengths within others. They would also have established a reflective practice of teacher inquiry that has illustrated a proven track record of helping to raise student achievement while honouring the uniqueness of the child. Experience or an interest in play-based learning, storytelling and strengthening oral language to improve literacy outcomes would also be an advantage.

As our school whakatauki states; he maunga, he tangata. Every person is a mountain and represents the heights of potential.
