We are looking for a dynamic, innovative and ambitious primary class teacher, who can bring the wealth of experience and ideas from primary school and apply these to a creative and unique model for a small group of identified Year 7 pupils in our 'Taith' curriculum provision (see recruitment pack: introduction to Year 7 Taith Provision, p.4-5).
The successful candidate will lead the Taith class (a small group of around 15 pupils), offering pupils a full-time provision with access to secondary learning and teaching experiences, using the many outstanding features from the primary education model. If successful, you will fully participate in developing pupils' literacy and numeracy skills and develop a thematic approach to learning across all Areas of Learning Experience. Pupils in the Taith provision will be taught together for the majority of the time as a discrete group, but will have access to many of specialist provision which are important features of our secondary curriculum (eg. Science and Technology practical lessons, Health & Wellbeing lessons etc). Whilst initially pupils will access this provision on a full-time basis, it is very much envisaged that pupils will have the opportunity to increasingly access learning outside this provision, reflecting their strengths and interests.
We truly see this as an incredibly exciting opportunity for a primary trained teacher to help develop this unique approach to learning in a secondary school.
If you are someone who:
- Is interested in joining a school where we are always looking to develop to suit the needs of all pupils
- has high standards for all and is able to communicate these to pupils in a supportive and caring manner
- has a passion for learning and teaching, including the use of digital technology
- has a strong commitment to the wider pastoral role and wish to make a significant, positive impact on young people's lives
- sees the role of a teacher as being a partnership between school and home then we would like to hear from you.
*If you would like further information about this exciting new role, you will be more than welcome to join the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher for an informal virtual meeting via Microsoft Teams next week. Please contact Mrs Mackie Deputy Headteacher.
