The Reach Free School is looking to appoint a talented, supportive, adaptable individual to take on the broad role of Assistant Teacher for Bespoke Pupils Support in the school. The role has many aspects including: 

  • • Supporting a range of mixed ability pupils, for whom the school receives additional funding, to make more than expected progress in their different subjects
  • • Communicating with parents, guardians and carers to build good relationships between home and school for these pupils
  • • Promoting high attendance and intervening as appropriate
  • • Offering extra-curricular activities as part of our integrated programme
  • • Promoting reading for pleasure

The role would suit a candidate with experience of working in a supportive role in a school environment, or a graduate seeking experience of such an environment prior to embarking on a programme to gain qualified teacher status.

In return we will offer you: 

  • • A happy and supportive working environment with high expectations and standards
  • • Opportunities to develop a broad range of skills in a vibrant and evolving environment
  • • Opportunities to progress to a career in teaching via the Schools Direct programme where viable
  • • A BUPA cash plan to contribute to medical care 

The Reach Free School is a successful and rapidly growing secondary Free School, which opened in September 2013. The over-subscribed school is a popular choice for local families and is looking for staff to join from September 2017. From 2018, the school will be moving to a brand new purpose built building right in the heart of the community that it serves.  

If the challenges of working to develop a new, local school appeal to you, then we would like to hear from you.
