Employment Opportunities

Reception Teacher

Norfolk House School is a happy and thriving co-educational prep school which prides itself on the family atmosphere and nurturing ethos. Every child is encouraged to strive for their very best through our diverse curriculum, including a wide range of extra-curricular activities, designed to stimulate a life-long love of learning.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Early Years trained EYFS teacher to join our Early Years Foundation Stage Department from 15th April 2024. The school is hoping to recruit an inspirational, self-motivated teacher with a passion for excellence to be an integral part of our successful, happy and caring school. The EYFS children benefit from teaching within small groups with staff : pupil ratios usually being 1 : 7.

The delightful children, supportive parents and professional, talented and nurturing staff all combine to make Norfolk House School a wonderful place to work. We warmly welcome interested candidates to visit and experience our friendly team in this highly regarded school.

Staff appointed to Norfolk House, who deliver fun and enjoyable lessons that will inspire young minds and achieve results, join a dynamic and forward-thinking school, steeped in tradition but with a keen eye on the future. To be considered for this teaching position you will have experience with EYFS children, have high expectations for learning and behaviour, be a strong team player, and be able to motivate and inspire students helping them to work towards the highest standards, being committed to safeguarding and welfare of children.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

The safeguarding responsibilities of the post are stated in full in the job description.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.

Closing date for applications: Friday 1st December 2023, 12pm

Completed application forms should be sent to Sarah Graham – info@norfolkhouseschool.co.uk
