Vacancy reference #: 1HAGwX

We are looking for a full-time release teacher to work in all three of our learning hubs from Y1–6, releasing teachers across the school to allow them to work on a range of projects. 

The role will begin at the start of term 2 (3 May), although it is possible for the role to begin sooner, if the successful candidate is available to start earlier. The role will last until the end of the 2021 school year. 

We are an innovative school focused on developing the structures, processes and practices required for the deep personalisation of learning. This requires teachers who are genuinely willing to begin the learning process with the needs of every student, design and organise learning to meet those needs, gather evidence to determine the effectiveness of their teaching and learning programmes and always be responsive to the evidence and what they now know about the child.  

You will need to be resilient, an ethical, committed professional, and willing and able to take your fair share of the load. Are you a continual learner? Are you urgent to see equitable outcomes for all students? Are you prepared to work in a highly collaborative team-teaching environment across all year levels from year 1-6?

At our school, we are serious about our responsibilities to New Zealand’s Te Tiriti partnership and to our highly multicultural school community. Expectations are high; however, we are supported by a caring and generous board of trustees, who are very concerned about the career development of teachers, teacher workloads and who are seeking sustainable solutions. We have a strong leadership development programme which takes a coaching leadership approach.

This is a fixed-term position for 2021.
