We offer a full-time curriculum to young people from EYFS to KS5 and our aim is always to enable them to ‘close the gap’ and to make outstanding progress during the time they are with us.

The role involves teaching pupils with medical needs who are unable to access mainstream education. This may take place online or in the pupil’s home. Many of our pupils have gaps in their education and we strive to implement creative teaching strategies to reduce the impact of educational disadvantage, enabling all our pupils to access learning and make expected progress. You should be passionate about developing and supporting the needs of the whole child and committed to enabling all pupils to achieve their potential. We are looking for a qualified temporary Primary teacher with tenacity, positivity and experience of teaching EYFS, KS1 and KS2 You should have QTS and a track record as a consistently good practitioner. Duties include teaching a variety of pupils, sometimes with PMLD ensuring that work is differentiated to meet the specific needs of pupils who require teaching in the home.
