If you are an effective and ambitious Learning Support Teacher who is committed to raising standards of student performance through positively impacting on teaching and learning, then Leighton Park is your next school. We are looking for a temporary Learning Support Teacher for one term initially, to start in September 2020.

As well as being an excellent classroom practitioner who can teach across all age ranges, you should be passionate about supporting all students by developing and supporting classroom practice so that all students make rapid rates of progress. You will be working with children (on both a one-to-one and small group basis) who need additional support in order to reach their full educational potential. This includes children with learning, emotional, behavioural or communication difficulties, conditions such as ASD, dyspraxia, dyslexia and ADHD, sensory impairments (for example, visual impairment), sensory processing disorder and mental health issues. 

A key aspect of this role is identifying individual needs and being responsible for creating a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment. This is a demanding but incredibly rewarding role. You will be unwavering in your belief that with the right support and quality teaching, all students can succeed. We are looking for an excellent practitioner, who is committed to making a real difference to the lives of young people.
