Thank you for your interest in working with us.

This is an exciting opportunity to support the progress of students with cognition and learning difficulties. Working with small groups of students, you will deliver and continue to develop further the key stage 3 phonics intervention programme and support the development of literacy interventions across the school. Through this role, you will support and engage students with additional needs to develop and enhance their literacy skills.  You should have a positive approach, a caring and patient nature and a passion for literacy.  Ideally you have previous experience of working in key stage 2 and/or key stage 3, providing support to children with additional needs.  The term time hours of work are from 8.30 am to 4.00 pm with a 3.30 pm finish on Fridays.

As a school, we value and prioritise the continuing development of our staff.  This comes in a variety of forms, through subject specific professional development delivered in department time, regular teaching and learning workshops, INSET days and through our close links with the Wolds TSA.
