Combined Reception and Year 1 class teacher

The King Alfred School

Vacancy Reception and Year 1 Teacher 2022

for September 2022 (Please note we can wait until Jan 2023 if the right candidate has to serve notice)

An exciting opportunity to join a new independent school that is going into its second year of operation. The King Alfred school is a school with a real strong sense of community and purpose. Our first year of operation has been a real success and we are now in a position to recruit more team members.

This position offers a unique opportunity to revive the long-lost heritage of Classical Christian Education in England by joining a team of enthusiastic parents and teachers to help establish the country’s first Classical Christian school. Our ideal candidate will be a qualified teacher who has taught lower school previously. A person who has a good understanding of classical pedagogy and who possesses a distinctly Christian view of the purpose of education is highly desirable. Although, because having had a classical education is more niche, there is an option to employ a candidate who does not have training in this area but who is willing to enthusiastically learn and undertake training.

This position is for a full-time teacher to lead the Reception and Year 1 combined class, teaching 4–6-year-olds and be accountable for the educational progress by effective teaching and learning. This role will require the skill of following the EYFS framework and the school’s Year 1 curriculum. We are dedicated to keeping class sizes small in order to best meet our students’ needs and so the class size will be capped at 13 students.
