About the role

Working closely with the mainstream teachers in the year group, you will adapt the curriculum to meet the individual needs of each student in your class. You will work with our students and help them achieve the best possible outcomes, both socially and academically, promoting inclusive practice by personalising their curriculum. You should also have knowledge of specific learning difficulties. We’ll look to you to promote high expectations for our students, designing learning activities that are aligned to our school’s curriculum and creating a learning culture where there are no limits to what can be achieved. You will foster an environment of respect within the classroom, facilitating learning through questioning and discussion.

Committed and creative, you will be reflective on your own teaching and student outcomes, seeking out and implementing new ideas and innovative methods to raise the school’s level of achievement.
The ability to lead and develop a team, and to communicate clearly with all stakeholders is essential.
Keen to collaborate and share your specialist expertise, you will be a fitting ambassador for the school.
