PRIMARY TEACHER – PERMANENT

 MS1-UPS3 - £23,720 to £39,406

REQUIRED SEPTEMBER 2019

Bridge Short Stay School, Lichfield WS13 6SW

(Based at ‘Little Bridge’, School Road, Rugeley WS15 2PD)

 

 

We are seeking to appoint an experienced Primary Teacher with Behaviour Management experience to join us at our established Primary Short Stay School.

 

From September 2019, we will be moving our primary provision into a new and bigger building based in Rugeley, Staffordshire. Little Bridge provides an education for up to a maximum of 18 students in the Lichfield, Rugeley, Burntwood and Cannock primary schools who are either permanently excluded from school, in danger of losing their mainstream place or experiencing emotional, mental health problems.

 

As part of our expansion plans we are increasing the number of places we are offering. Students follow a holistic curriculum and focus on learning the skills needed to be successful in a classroom environment. English and Maths are taught daily as well as History, PE, Cooking and other vocational subjects.

 

The Bridge Centre continues to be ‘Good’ after a short Ofsted inspection in December 2018. The staff team are very supportive of each other and we are working actively with staff at other similar provisions in Staffordshire to ensure that the most vulnerable young people in our society get the very best education.

 

This is an exciting opportunity to further develop experience in the management of challenging behaviour and to join the School at a key point in our journey. Experience in mainstream/alternative provision primary education is essential as is the willingness to be flexible and work as part of a team.

 

For an informal discussion please contact Andrew Burton, Headteacher, on 01543 255872. Visits are welcomed.  To arrange a visit please contact Lynnette Abell, School Business Manager on 01543 255872 or alternatively email office@bridge.staffs.sch.uk
