We are sad to be losing a valued staff member at the end of this year, therefore we seek applications from teachers strong in their teaching and curriculum knowledge, and pastoral care (we are a Pause, Breathe, Smile, Mindful school). We would like a person who is passionate about working with young people, enjoys inspiring others to be their best, and is an involved team player.  You will be able to develop high trust relationships with students, staff, and parents. If you can display a willingness to refine and/or develop your practice in teaching, then this is the dream job for you.  The position will be in the middle school.

You will look forward to playground duty, you get to interact in children's games where they know how to take turns and engage in a range of activities in our beautiful spacious grounds. As a Pause, Breathe, Smile school, our children (in the classroom and playground) are developing self-regulation and focus, emotional well-being and show kindness to one another. Currently you get to teach (rather than manage behaviour). You will receive extensive professional development.

Start date January 2021. We have a highly supportive staff, community and Board of Trustees. Accommodation available (for minimal rental).
