Hall Mead School is seeking a highly competent teacher of literacy to teach and lead on a bespoke literacy programme for small groups of Key Stage 3 students who are in need of additional literacy teaching in order to address gaps in skills and/or knowledge that are inhibiting their wider learning. The successful candidate will have a good understanding and knowledge of teaching literacy either in a secondary or primary setting and have good classroom management skills.
This is also a leadership opportunity for someone who will lead the development of the literacy courses and manage staff who support and/or teach on the courses, developing resources and strategies to enable students’ progress in literacy.
In addition, the successful candidate will take responsibility for the coordination, monitoring and review of School Support students within the SEND department.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to develop a leadership career in SEND and we will offer the opportunity to be funded and released in order to undertake the National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination if that is of interest.
