We are fortunate at Wrenn to have students from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.

Over the past few years we have seen an increase in the number of students who have English as an additional language, particularly from Romania and other Eastern European countries.  These students often require additional support to enable them full access to the curriculum.

We are hoping to employ an EAL assistant to help these students fulfill beyond their potential at Wrenn by supporting pupils in a range of classes in all year groups, and teaching basic English to individuals or small groups.  

Pastoral care is important at Wrenn and our EAL assistant would need to be able to communicate effectively with parents/carers, as well as provide day to day support to our students. 

Your well-being and professional development in order to enhance your career is a priority for us. We offer a mentoring programme, annual career stage interviews, bespoke CPD training, supportive action research projects, staff rewards and support for family events.

We have a flexible approach to interviews and can offer a range of dates and times suitable to the candidate.  We also encourage potential candidates who are interested in applying to give us a call to arrange a visit or chat to one of our Senior Leaders.

We are looking for a colleague who shares the clear vision that the child is at the heart of everything we do, who can enjoy positive, professional relationships with young people and who demonstrates high levels of resilience and emotional intelligence.
