Early Years - Late Afternoon Care Lead

We are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic teacher to lead our Early Years Late Afternoon Care (LAC), which provides for children from our kindergartens (age 2-6). The LAC leader will work closely with the teachers of all relevant classes and the Late Afternoon assistant, hence providing continuity and a smooth transition for all children joining this programme. The Late Afternoon sessions run from 3-5pm Tuesday to Thursday in one of our kindergarten rooms, with access to the garden. Between 12-3pm the Afternoon lead will support the Kindergarten teachers by leading afternoon activities in the garden and forging strong relationships with children from the different kindergartens.
The first and foremost responsibility of the LAC leader is to ensure the welfare and safeguarding of all children in the Late Afternoon care. They are expected to care for and respond to their individual needs according to the principles of Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood education and care. For the Job Description, Click Here.

Early Years Manager

We are looking for an experienced and inspirational individual to take on the responsibility of leading our Steiner Waldorf Early Years Department. You will be responsible for ensuring that values and standards are embedded and result in consistently high quality practice.
You will chair weekly team meetings, support the flow of information and the exchange of practice, and manage the organisation of staffing and resources. The role includes oversight of the school’s Parent and Child/Baby groups, including the delivery of some sessions. Early Years’ experience is essential, along with an understanding and commitment to Steiner Education and an ability therefore to contribute to some of the delivery and planning of teaching.
You will also represent the Early Years department at school management level. It is in the ethos of the school that management works in response to the needs of their departments whilst also critically evaluating those needs. You will therefore need to be able to hold diverse interests within a shared vision, facilitating dialogue in any decision-making process. For the Job Description, Click Here.

Trustee Vacancies

We are always looking to recruit new trustees. In addition to ideally having experience in Education, we are also interested in broadening and deepening the skills of our existing trustee body in other ways. Therefore, we welcome applications from candidates with skills and experience in areas such as Safeguarding, Special Educational Needs, Health and Safety, Finance and Personnel. This is not an exclusive list of skills, but outlines some of the core ones required in a school governance team.
Trustees currently meet as sub-committees around once per half term (Education, Resources and Finance). Meetings are generally during the evenings, currently taking place remotely via Zoom. Full board meetings take place at least once a term.
Cambridge Steiner School does not generally appoint parents or close relatives onto its trustee body, to avoid potential conflicts of interest which may otherwise arise; however, we may exceptionally consider doing so for candidates who demonstrate proven ability in the skills identified above.
If you are interested in becoming a trustee of Cambridge Steiner School, please contact the school for an application form or to talk more about what may be involved in becoming a School Trustee.
