The successful candidate will work in close partnership with the class teachers, create student learning opportunities that align with the vision of the school, support educational objectives, augment classroom curricula, and extend academic/social and emotional growth in order to educate the whole child. This sessional teacher will work within the existing curriculum to plan well sequenced lessons, promote good progress through the school especially for the more able and those with additional needs, and effectively teach across a range of year groups.
