Overview

Are you someone who is dedicated to delivering excellent standards of care and education?

At Newhall Primary Academy and Nursery, we are looking for an exceptional Early Years Practitioner to work with our Nursery Manager, Early Years Phase Leader and other EYFS staff to initially help set up the Baby Room in our Nursery from scratch. We are looking for someone who is up for a challenge and wants to get stuck in with all aspects of our academy life!

 

About us

Newhall is a brand-new, state of the art academy on the Newhall development in Harlow, with the capacity for 420 children. The Primary Academy currently has 45 children on roll. It will grow year-on-year until it reaches full capacity. The Nursery has capacity for 56 children and is open all year round from 7.30am until 6pm. It offers both funded and private day care places.

 

The Academy and Nursery opened in September 2018 with 15 permanent staff and we are now seeking additional staff to join us and be part of the unique opportunity to build and grow the setting from its infancy. There is no doubt about it, setting up the Academy and Nursery from scratch takes vision, dedication and hard-work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey is exciting and it will be very rewarding to see the Academy and Nursery take shape over the next few years.
