The Write Time Independent SchoolCroydon

Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £27,000 - £30,000.
Contract term: Permanent

The Write Time is offering outstanding individuals the opportunity to join our small independent secondary school (alternative provision) as a Maths & Science teacher, and an experienced personal development worker. Currently we are ofsted registered for a maximum of 15 students and provide both full-time and part-time education to pupils who are either permanently excluded from school, or who are at risk of permanent exclusion.

This is a fantastic roles for an outstanding practitioner looking to take a lead in further developing the curriculum that is exciting and different from the mainstream education setting. There is also an opportunity to grow into more senior roles as it is the vision of The Write Time to open additional Alternative Provisions in London and potentially open a Free School within the next few years.

It is The Write Time’s belief that children will not achieve their learning potential when both social and emotional needs are not being met. As a result, we work very closely with other parties (local authorities, social services, referring schools, etc.) to provide an educational and social environment in which our students can flourish as young adults; emphasising not just statutory duties, but giving equal weight to prevention and early intervention to address social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Do you have what it takes to join The Write Time and help shape the future of some of London’s most hard to reach young people?
