We are looking for an enthusiastic, qualified primary school teacher with experience of working with upper Key Stage 2 pupils. This is a new post which is being created specifically to teach and support students in Key Stage 3 who have struggled with their work over the previous 18 months because of the impact of the COVID pandemic, and to help with the transition from primary school.

If you are appointed you will be responsible for teaching, probably English and / or Maths, to Year 7 students and possibly also Year 8 and 9. You will also work to develop and run intervention programmes for smaller groups of students in literacy and numeracy. Some of this work will be after school, so you will need to have the flexibility on at least one day a week to start late and to finish later than our normal 3.00 pm. You will also provide guidance to our other teaching and teaching assistant members of staff on how to help students have a successful transition from primary to secondary school, so we are looking for someone with recent experience of teaching Year 5 or Year 6 students.

This post offers you the chance to make a positive difference to students who have had a tough time through no fault of their own during the pandemic. You will help students to develop their independence and their ability to work well with other as well as their level of literacy and numeracy. All this will give them the best possible start to a really successful five years at secondary school.

The post is temporary for 12 months in the first instance. It is advertised as a full time post, but if you are interested in working part time and have the right skills and experience you are encouraged to apply.

Rehabilitation The post you are applying for is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013). If successful you will be required to apply to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for a 'disclosure'. Information provided by you or the Disclosure and Barring Service will be dealt with in a confidential manner in accordance with the DBS's Code of Practice.
