School’s Vacancies

Thank you for your interest in Sinai School. Please read on to gain a brief insight into Sinai, our children and our staff.

Sinai Jewish Primary School is three-form entry, co-educational voluntary-aided school, admitting 90 children into Reception and up to 60 children into Nursery. It is the largest Jewish primary school in Europe – a big school, with a big heart, offering big opportunities.

We pride ourselves on being forward thinking educators, always striving for the best for each and every one of our pupils. We are extremely proud of our students, our best ambassadors, who are polite and caring children and motivated to strive for the best.

The school follows the National Curriculum and boasts a team of dedicated and driven staff who all believe that every child has the right to the best education.

We are fortunate to be set in a large campus and have extensive sports facilities, including a purpose built gym and specialist French, Music, Art and PE teaching. We also have a SEN department and sensory room as well as an on-site school counsellor available to all our children.

Our commitment to our children is that they will have an excellent education across both the secular and Jewish Curriculum.

We are a centre for excellence and this begins in Early Years where our provision is first class. We have developed a child centred approach where we spark that initial excitement for learning, through curiosity, investigation and exploration. Our staff in Early Years and across the whole school are passionate about teaching, encouraging the children to reach their potential and exceed their expectations.

Behaviour is excellent and teachers have high expectations, through a warm and nurturing approach. Children at Sinai, love Sinai – happy children learn well.

We are looking for passionate teachers who want to instil a love of learning.

If this sounds like the kind of environment in which you would thrive, then we would very much like to hear from you.
