This is a permanent, full-time position (with potential for some flexibility) starting in September 2020.
Learning Support is a well resourced department with all the necessary assessment material available. The Department consists of a part-time specialist teacher and a part-time EAL teacher. The ISI report in October 2019 stated that the students supported by Learning Support “achieve well as their individual needs are accurately identified by the Learning Support Department and effective support plans put in place. This is followed up by effective monitoring and review to ensure that teachers adapt their lessons to ensure that these pupils needs are met”. The last JCQ inspection in May 2019 were impressed with record keeping, the teaching and access arrangements.
