We need a fun and energetic Reception teacher to join our small and friendly team. Our amazing Reception class of 16 are looking for an experienced teacher who is passionate and inspiring and would sieze the opportunity to cover a maternity position.

We love to learn is our motto and we are committed to ensuring pur pupils get the best possible offer in line with todays curriculum. We are proud of our caring, nurturing and ambitious community that work together to achieve the best possible outcomes for all. Every child is valued and encouraged to meet their full potential of being an independent and confident learner. We aim to provide a curriculum that is creative in its approach and underpin this with first hand experiences to ensure that we create lifelong learners. These experiences along with our core Christian values allow the pupils at Sedley’s to develop not only academically but also morally, physically and spiritually. Our pupils are taught from a Christian perspective, which includes respect and tolerance of the beliefs of others. It is for this reason that a child does not have to be from a Christian background to benefit from all that Sedley’s offers.
