School 21 is a pioneering 4 to 18 school in Stratford, East London that is developing a rich 21st century curriculum and a range of exciting pedagogies. This is your chance to be part of a growing body of exceptional teachers who are rigorous about the basics of phonics, literacy and maths and at the cutting edge of new thinking on real world learning, oracy (speaking), storytelling and well-being.
We are looking for a Reception teacher who has a passion for a rich and layered early years provision, skilfully teaching children how to develop their oracy and social skills, learning through purposeful play and literacy based projects, and being taught the basics of reading, writing and maths. You will be joining an excellent Reception team who will support you in your development.
School 21 is a very special and different kind of place to work in. We empower staff to find their voice and their creativity. We offer collaboration and learning across ages and subjects. All staff have more planning time than most schools and a tailored programme of professional development which results in extraordinary outcomes for the students. We offer multiple routes to progression through subjects and pedagogies. We believe strongly in developing the full potential of all staff.
Our aim is for children to grow and produce beautiful work. In the last few years children have crafted some stunning outcomes including a toy museum, their own planets, a photography and poetry exhibition and their own dramatic fairy tale production.
Our children learn at an early age to work in teams, ask challenging enquiry questions and think deeply. We are looking for new teachers to combine the rigorous development of the basics with this spirit of creativity and lead different aspects of this work.
