Are you enthusiastic, creative and committed to helping children be the best people they can be?

The ideal candidate will have good subject knowledge and secure skills in reading, writing and maths (  GCSE grade C or above in English and Maths) and will ideally have experience of working with the children of primary school age (5-11 years old). We are an inclusive school and applications from candidates with experience of supporting children with additional needs are welcomed.
