Learning Support Teacher
Maternity Cover - 3 days per week
From 01 September 2019
The Learning Support Department plays an important and integrated role in support of all learning in the school. We are seeking well-qualified, enthusiastic and creative teachers of children with specific learning difficulties who would be willing to help develop this dynamic department. This post is to cover a colleague’s maternity leave.
The Dragon School was founded in 1877 to educate the sons of dons. From these modest beginnings the School has grown to be an internationally renowned independent day and boarding preparatory school for over 600 boys and girls aged 8 to 13. In September 1995 the School (which has charitable status) opened a pre-prep on the Woodstock Road for about 200 more children aged 4 to 7.
The staff of over 300 full and part time individuals includes 120 teachers, 35 visiting music and learning support teachers, 30 teaching assistants, 35 pastoral staff and 90 support and administrative staff. A further range of individuals provide sports coaching and specialist services on a contract basis.
