Overall we are looking to appoint 3 ambitious, passionate and committed individuals who will contribute to the life and ethos of our busy, happy and successful school. One position will be permanent and the other two positions will be temporary for 12 months when they will be reviewed subject to budget funding. Although all applicants should be flexible to work across the school, one vacancy will be in primary (year 1 to year 6) with MLD/SEMH pupils. The other two positions will be in seniors (year 7 to year 11) with SLD/ASD pupils. An interest/experience in CLL (Communication, Language and Literacy) would be desirable.

Please highlight in your covering letter, which should be no more than two sides where your particular experience and strengths lie in relation to these positions. You will automatically be considered for all three positions unless you express specifically permanent or temporary in your covering letter.
