Our school is looking for an experienced, passionate educator to
fill the full-time role of Lead Primary Teacher based at our Primary site
(College Road). This is a challenging but very rewarding role
supporting some of the most vulnerable pupils in Reading. You will be
collaborating with a team of teachers, administrators, and parents to ensure
that our students receive the best education we can provide.
Key responsibilities include designing effective curriculums,
assessing lesson plans, implementing innovative teaching methods, and
supporting less experienced teachers in their various roles. To be successful
as a lead teacher, you should be someone with a deep understanding of what it
takes to teach students effectively. Top candidates will also be excellent
leaders and mentors, able to use their knowledge to raise fellow teachers up
and make lasting improvements to the school's educational processes. The
ability to make the role your own and build strong relationships is essential.
We are a multi-site organisation which includes our College Road Site –
Primary and Cranbury Road Site – Secondary. We have an Outreach Behaviour
Support Team, offer medical tuition and have a Hospital Teaching
Service based at Royal Berkshire Hospital.
