Safeguarding - Norwich Steiner School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the health, safety and wellbeing of all children and young people in the school, and expect all staff to share that commitment. All appointments whether paid or voluntary are subject to evidence of the person being suitable and appropriate to work with children through our safer recruitment process of application, collection of references and the carrying out of checks through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and other safeguarding checks as appropriate.

We are recruiting for the following posts:

This class will become a combined class of children in September 2021, and this group of children will stay together with their class teacher ideally until class 7/8. The closing date for this post has been extended to the end of May 2020. Subject to the School being open, interviews will take place in June for a September start, and if not, then in September for an October start date.

- 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 around once per half term. Meetings are generally during the daytime, although existing trustees would be able to meet in the evenings instead if necessary.
Norwich 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 become a trustee of Norwich Steiner School, please contact the school for an application form or to talk more about what may be involved in becoming a School Trustee.
Applications for volunteer positions listed above will be considered as they are received, with a view to immediate appointment of suitable candidates.
