An ELAN teacher is passionate and committed to meeting and exceeding all teaching standards and is actively seeking to improve their craft in line with our pedagogical principles.
You will be joining the school at an exciting time with a new team now in place driving the school forward. Your strong team-working skills and ability to be forward-thinking will be essential for helping establish this. Previous leadership experience is essential as this role brings the potential for leadership responsibilities as subject lead.
You will have high aspirations for pupils’ achievement and behaviour, a desire to make a difference, a belief in the value of education, and a genuine care for and need to support all children; particularly those facing significant challenges.
Windwhistle is a two-form entry school in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset. We offer a happy, safe environment that nurtures children from 3 – 11 years old and supports all in our school community. We have extensive grounds that the children can access for learning and play. We are very well-resourced with excellent professional development opportunities and our teachers benefit from support and development through the wider network of schools in ELAN. A Windwhistle teacher believes that every moment of every day is for learning and that learning and teaching are most effective when based on first-hand experiences.
