Our friends at the Dharma School in Brighton, UK, have two new vacancies. They write:

“The Dharma Primary School was the first school in the UK to be founded on Buddhist principles, with the practice of mindfulness at its heart. As they celebrate their 20th anniversary and welcome their new Head Teacher in September, they are seeking an experienced KS2 teacher (full- or part-time) and a part-time 1:1 SEN teaching assistant to help them move forward into an exciting new phase of development. The Key Stage 2 teaching position has the flexibility to be full or part-time, from September. (Start date negotiable.)

These opportunities come at a time when the Buddhist values of mindfulness and compassion are at the forefront of educational thinking. Candidates need not be practising Buddhists, but an interest in Buddhism and a commitment to Mindfulness in Education are essential.

Find out more and download an application pack from the Job Vacancies page on our website. (Please note we are unable to accept CVs). The closing date for both applications is the 12th June at 5.00pm.

The school will be hosting an online session on Thursday 4th June from 8.00pm – 9.30pm in which you can find out more about the Dharma Primary School, its culture and how you might fit in. It is intended to put you in a stronger position to make a formal application, based on a deeper understanding of the school’s ethos and the opportunities and challenges ahead.

To attend this online event, please register here.

The Dharma Primary School is a non-selective independent school and welcomes children aged 3-11 years from all backgrounds, faiths and abilities. Thier philosophy is rooted in Buddhist principles and for 20 years they have successfully integrated a holistic ethos with a sound academic education.
