Lead Teacher for Alternative Learning Provision
MPR/UPR plus TLR2 (£2,613) & Vacancy ID: 105545
SEN allowance (£2,064)
Full time
Required from January 2017

St Matthew's Primary School is a popular, over-subscribed and happy school full of enthusiastic and well behaved children eager to have fun learning.

We are a well-resourced and energetic school which is well supported by parents, governors and the wider community. Our current OFSTED grading is good….and we believe we are well on our way to being outstanding!

Alongside our mainstream provision we host an alternative provision on behalf of a partnership of eight schools.

This provision supports children with behavioural needs that can make full time mainstream education, difficult for them.

The aim of the provision is to provide an environment, pastoral and educational experience that keeps them moving forward in their learning but focuses specifically on their personal, social and emotional development.

Through personalised learning programmes the provision endeavours to enable children to be fully integrated back into their own school as soon as possible, and equip them with the skills and strategies to be successful in this.

The provision is based in a purpose built building with full access to all school facilities.

The space was designed to enable a personalised, hands on, creative,
practical and responsive curriculum so that the needs of individuals could be
effectively met in a safe space.

If you are an exemplary teacher who cares about the life chances of all children and has an interest in meeting the personal, social and emotional needs of children to ensure their inclusion and access to learning, then we would be very interested to meet you.

This is a very diverse and dynamic role. Alongside a teaching commitment for a class of up to 6 full time equivalent children, you will lead a team of 6 Behaviour Support Assistants, have the support of a full time Administrative Assistant and work closely with the school's Assistant Head for Inclusion.

If you would like more detailed information regarding this role or should you
wish to discuss it informally, please contact the Head, Ms Jane Thomas or
Mrs Natalie Crawford, Assistant Head for Inclusion on the number below.
Visits to our school and alternative provision are very warmly welcomed.
