Would you like to be part of a community and build your career within a school that is passionate about every individual child as well as their families? Are you willing to be mentally, emotionally and physically challenged knowing that your input is making a lasting impact in a child's life? Do you have a sense of humour to be positive even when you actually want to hide? We are a committed team that thrives to deliver a curriculum to equip our students to "learn to live" and become as independent and resilient as possible within our society. We provide a supportive and safe environment to allow you to foster a "growth mindset", be continually challenged and encouraged to try new class strategies. Ideally we are looking for someone who is willing to teach some practical subjects and possibly some PE.
Successful candidates will have:
A few tricks up their sleeves - you never know when you might have to come up with a new lesson because that plan you spent hours working on is just not going down well…
Spandex - being resilient and flexible is key when you have researched every classroom strategy and your class is still not engaged…
An array of footwear - running club, Gruffalo woods, the orchard, farm animals - one needs to be equipped for all our areas of learning.
Lightbulb moments - we are always looking for new ideas to improve our clubs, social activities, coffee mornings and fundraising initiatives.
NQT's are welcome to apply.
