Post Ref: ED50052040
School Number on Roll: 429
(including 32 place nursery)
Salary Range: MPS/UPS + TLR 2 (£4,781)
Required for Spring Term 2022
Moorland Primary School, founded in 1891, is situated in the heart of Splott. It is a friendly, diverse and welcoming primary school with a strong community spirit. As part of a cluster, Moorland collaborates well with neighbouring schools, sharing best practice and experiences and has excellent links with a broad range of community partners. We encourage innovative outdoor learning and are fortunate to have a varied outdoor space. A much-loved Early Years garden, well developed Forest School and an Edible Playground provide numerous learning opportunities across the curriculum. The school has a new headteacher who joined the school in September and is set to grow with the development of two additional needs resource bases and an early years centre.
We are seeking a full-time (non-class based) Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator to help develop all aspects of inclusive practice in the school. We are looking for someone with a strong knowledge, and understanding, of child development and of additional learning needs, as well as a passion for inclusion. It is essential that the successful candidate has an excellent understanding of the ALNET reforms and how they relate to the wider national mission for education in Wales. The postholder will be part of the senior leadership team in the school and the ability to lead, inspire and motivate others will be key.
The role requires someone with empathy, who communicates well with families and who fully understands the role of parental engagement in children’s learning. The successful candidate will need to work confidently with professionals from a range of other services and to build strong relationships with these partners.
We are looking for a commitment to the inclusion of every child and ensuring that all pupils have equal opportunities to access a broad and balanced curriculum.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone with the right knowledge and experience to join a friendly, caring and dedicated team.
