Houndsfield Primary School is a large, diverse primary school in Edmonton. We want you to come and join our school where we work hard to improve the life chances of every child. We are looking for practitioners who have a genuine desire to make a difference and who can generate opportunities for creative learning.
However, make sure you think hard before you apply, because working at Houndsfield will not be for everyone. You must be truly committed to making a difference in the lives of children as the school is situated in an area of high deprivation which presents with challenges. Joining us is an exciting opportunity to work in a team of dedicated, like-minded individuals. We invest in professional development for staff at all levels and are well supported by the Academy Trust.
Our core values of Respect, Equality, Achievement, Courage and Honesty are key to ensuring that we provide a harmonious, happy learning environment where pupils feel valued and listened to. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school where the pursuit of excellence underpins all our practice.
We are looking for creative and committed Early Years Assistants to work with our Under 5s in our Early Years team. The successful candidates must have NVQ Level 3 Childcare or an equivalent qualification that is relevant to the role. A paediatric first aid qualification is also desirable.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of our children and expect all staff to share this commitment. All candidates are required to complete the school’s ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ declaration.
The school encourages visits. Please contact the School Office to arrange a mutually convenient time. When applying please ensure you meet the criteria set out in the person specification.
