Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School

Trent Road, London, SW2 5BL

Corpus Christi School exists to serve the Catholic communities of Brixton Hill and its neighbouring parishes. We are here to educate our children to the highest possible standard in a community which has the gospel values, traditions, and beliefs of the Catholic Faith at the centre of its ethos.

Christian values will be upheld in all aspects of the school, with an emphasis on respect, helpfulness, unselfishness, and co-operation.

Our whole school community of children, parents, staff, and governors are justifiably very proud of our school and its successes. These successes are evident both in the academic standards achieved and in the excellent curriculum on offer to the children.

We aim to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment in which each child can thrive and develop his or her own interests and talents, so that they are provided with the best possible start to their education. Our staff are central to making this happen.

As a school we benefit from excellent staff retention whilst still providing opportunities for new teachers to grow in confidence and develop their practice in a nurturing but challenging environment, supported by skilled mentors, phase leaders and a very experienced leadership team. As an inner city, multi-ethnic school we would like to develop our workforce so it is representative of the local community and encourage applications to reflect this.

 

We are looking for teachers who:


  • are outstanding practitioners

  • have the ability to create a rich, stimulating and exciting learning environment

  • has excellent interpersonal skills

  • is passionate about learning and understands how children learn

  • is able to communicate well with colleagues, pupils, parents and governors

  • will take an active part in the life of the school

  • will support our Catholic ethos, although there is no requirement to be Catholic


    In return we can offer you:

  • the opportunity to work within an outstanding school

  • confident, well behaved, happy children who are eager to learn

  • dedicated and highly effective staff who are committed to the wellbeing of our children

  • the opportunity to work within a supportive and nurturing team

Holmewood Nursery school is situated in Central Lambeth, off Brixton Hill.  The school is located in a densely populated area of contrasting households in terms of culture, ethnicity, and socio-economic status.


Holmewood provides education for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), with 95 full time equivalent places in the main nursery (2 - 4 year olds) and 12 full time equivalent places in the two year old provision.  The school's intake is very culturally diverse with a high percentage of children from mixed, or Black-British / Caribbean / African backgrounds. Nearly half of the children speak English as an additional language, with many at the early stages of learning English.


Holmewood is federated with Maytree and Triangle Nursery Schools.  As a Federated Nursery School, Holmewood is led by an Executive Head Teacher, Head of School and teachers working with other qualified early years practitioners. Holmewood offers highly inclusive education with qualified and caring staff.  It has rich and varied indoor and outdoor learning environments that allow children to play and be active in developing and acquiring new skills and knowledge; children are well motivated and are thoroughly absorbed in their learning.


They are encouraged to experiment and explore and children are very well challenged to enable them to take risks safely and develop their own problem solving skills. Outdoor learning is supported through the Natural Thinkers curriculum and an extensive allotment.


Each child is allocated a Key Person, one of our skilled early years educators or teachers. They get to know the children in their group very well and work in collaboration with their parents. Teachers and practitioners support, encourage and facilitate learning opportunities so that children are happy, confident and independent learners.


All teachers and practitioners have a thorough understanding of children’s early learning and development and the early years foundation stage and understand the importance of working together with parents and other professionals.


At Holmewood, we believe in investing in professional development and bespoke training to meet individual needs so that all teachers and practitioners feel motivated and committed to the continuing success of the school.


Visits to the school can be arranged by contacting the school office.
