We have a position available for a primary, special or secondary trained colleague to join us to support in the development of our Key Stage 3 curriculum and to specialise in teaching both those children who are behind with their age related expectations, and those with SEMH needs to join us from September 2023. We have a great respect for the work of our colleagues in all phases and settings and the work they do to develop the reading skills of our learners from early years through to Key Stage 2.
