We are looking to appoint an experienced and dedicated Primary Teacher to work with a committed team of professionals in our New River College Primary.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a teacher who is looking for a new challenge and has a flexible approach, to join a committed team at New River College.
The post holder will need to be a confident and effective teacher who can deliver exciting and fun lessons. We are looking for teachers who relish a challenge, who want to try new ideas and genuinely want to contribute to the lives of young people with drive and passion.
Although most of our pupils are KS2, the ability to work with KS1 pupils is essential as many of our pupils are below national age related literacy and numeracy levels when they arrive.
New River College comprises of three pupil referral units in Islington (primary, secondary and medical) for pupils with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD). We are a trauma informed school, and this is at the heart of our work with young people. We teach children and young people aged five to 16 who have been permanently excluded or participate in our preventative programmes to address their behaviour, and children and young people with complex SEBD or medical needs.
New River College Primary received a judgement of Good in its most recent Ofsted inspection (May 2018). Our staff work with a number of professionals to support our pupils and the successful applicant will need to have a flexible approach around pastoral care whilst having a strong commitment to improving levels of learning.
