We are looking to recruit a full-time Teacher for our lower senior class (Years 7-9). Our pupils often have significant gaps in their learning having had time out of education in the past therefore most are learning below national expectation. The role encompasses more of a primary approach, teaching a single class in core and foundation subjects so would also suit a teacher with primary qualifications.

Responsibilities will also include writing PIES, Individual Risk Assessments and Positive Behaviour Plans. In addition to these responsibilities you may be asked to lead a subject hub dependent on specialism, attend Annual Reviews of pupils EHCP’s and monitor and analyse not only academic achievement but also social and emotional development.

  • have experience of working as a teacher in a challenging environment; or be very confident and have an excellent training record.
