Due to the retirement of our DP we are on the lookout for someone to lead our junior school into the future.

Here is our CV:

We are an innovative, future-focused school. We teach with passion, purpose and value partnerships within our teaching staff and school community.

We are a play-based learning school. Our two junior teams operate in flexible learning spaces, and are well staffed with awesome people. 

You would have ongoing mentorship programmes with CORE Education (around leading spirals of inquiry), and Evaluation Associates (leadership development). We are also engaged in development with Longworth Education leading improvements to play-based learning here at DPS.

The role is classroom based, and includes leading one of the two junior teaching teams. The position comes with 0.2 release, as well as CTR and leadership release. 4MU's are attached, with the ability to apply for further fixed term units. 

Our new co-pilot will have a strong vision for developing exceptional young citizens, proven play-based practice and a keen sense of the balance needed to provide both creative freedom and academic pursuit. 

School visits available.
