Languages Plus job description… this is a full time teaching post, comprising approximately 50% language teaching time, with the remainder being class teaching and learning support. Post available now, but start date negotiable.

Class teacher job description – full-time class teacher sought for a combined class of 15 pupils, currently age 10-12 years old, as sadly, their class teacher of the previous 6 years is leaving in July.

Ideally, the successful candidate will stay with the class for 7 years and until they transition into the upper school; however, it is understood that the length of this commitment may be hard to meet with the changes that naturally happen in life over a 7 year period and that it is not always possible to meet this ideal in practice. Suggested start date for contract of 1 August 2024, but this can be negotiated to be earlier or later. Closing date 1 May 2024. Application and criminal disclosure forms available below.

  • 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.
