Early Years Practitioners

At Broadclyst Nursery and the brand new Westclyst Nursery

The Cornerstone Academy Trust is responsible for Broadclyst, Westclyst and Yeo Valley Primary Schools. With the existing Broadclyst Nursery going from strength to strength, and the brand-new Nursery at Westclyst Primary School opening in September, this is an exciting time to join the Trust.

We are recruiting an extended team to help deliver outstanding early years provision at both locations. Initially opening as a 40-place setting, the Westclyst Nursery will eventually grow to accommodate 60 children per session. We already offer wrap around provision from 8am until 6pm at Broadclyst, and this will be replicated at Westclyst. We also have ambitions to offer an all year-round service, not just term time only. Both settings will offer education from 2 years old.

Therefore, we are seeking to recruit dedicated and professional Early Years Practitioners to work alongside our EYFS Lead Teacher and the Early Years Professional Nursery Leaders to support children in all areas of the curriculum. You will also assist in the preparation of the learning environment, liaising with parents, maintaining pupil records and carrying out a range of administrative tasks. Relevant experience of working with early years children and relevant qualifications are required (e.g. NVQ level 3 or equivalent or higher).

The positions are permanent and will commence in September 2019. Core working hours are 32.5 per week, starting at 8.30am, finishing at 3.30pm, with a 30-minute lunch break. However, there are opportunities to work an extended day in the before school session and/or after school session from 8am until 9am and 3pm until 6pm. The core role is term time only plus an additional two weeks including the five non-pupil days, but we are keen to know if you would also be interested in any all-year round work should we be able to expand the Nursery provision to operate out of term time during the school holidays. We would like to employ flexible people who could easily work at both Nurseries, but this is not mandatory.

Therefore, within your personal statement your application must state:

• Whether you have a preferred Nursery to work at?
• Have you your own means of transport to travel between sites if need be?
• Would you be able and willing to cover from 8am in the morning?
• Would you be able and willing to cover until 6pm in the evenings?
• Would you be interested in all year-round work?

The full-time equivalent salary will be between £14,856 and £19,980. The actual salary will be adjusted to reflect the hours per week and the weeks per year. The pay scale allows for progression within the role in line with our appraisal and professional development processes. Starting salary will depend of experience. There is an option of joining the local government pension scheme, benefitting from a cycle to work scheme and a health benefits package.

Visits to Broadclyst are welcome by prior arrangement, unfortunately we are unable to offer Westclyst visits at this time, while the building is completed.

Closing Date: 21st June 2019

Interview date: Either 1st, 2nd or 3rd July 2019

These roles will be based either at Broadclyst or Westclyst Primary School, within varying year groups across EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. You will work alongside the class teacher to support children in all areas of the curriculum and will also assist in the preparation of the learning environment, liaising with parents, maintaining pupil records and carrying out a range of administrative tasks.

The salary will be between £14,856 and £16,659 pro rata. This allows for progression within the role in line with our appraisal and professional development processes. The actual salary will be lower to reflect the hours per week and the weeks per year.
