Please note that this is a non-teaching position and whilst applications from teaching candidates are welcomed we cannot offer a teaching timetable.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. You will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS disclosure.
