Supply Staff Vacancies

Are you an experienced Early Years Practitioner with the passion and skills to inspire and enthuse young children, and help them build strong foundations for a lifetime's learning?   Are you looking to work flexibly without the formalities of employment? If so, we are currently recruiting Supply Early Years Practitioners to cover for staff absence on training and sickness. 

Hours of work

To provide cover on demand during term times only:

Mondays – 8.30am/9am to 2/3.30pm

Tuesdays – 8.30am/9am to 2/3.30pm

Wednesdays – 8.30am/9am to 2/3.30pm

Thursdays – 8.30am/9am to 1.30pm

Ideally we are looking for staff who can be available at short notice. To cover for staff sickness we may need to contact you at about 7.30am to start work at 8.30/9am the same day.

Pay and terms and conditions of employment

Supply staff with a full and relevant Level 3 qualification or higher are paid £10 an hour, but are self-employed contractors so responsible for their own tax and NI if appropriate. Supply staff are paid according to a signed timesheet on a monthly basis.

Supply staff are responsible for covering the cost of their own DBS check, which will be verified using the DBS update service. Supply staff must supply two satisfactory references prior to any work being offered.

Please contact the Pre-school Business Manager, Jen Harper on if you are interested in a supply role at Freshford Pre-school. 

Volunteer Vacancies

We always welcome new volunteers of any age to work with the children. Volunteering with the Pre-school can also provide valuable experience before starting a teaching or childcare qualification.

Please contact our Pre-school Business Manager, Jen Harper on if you are interested.
