Job information
Post No. EPT0163 - Class Teacher - Crindau Primary School

Class Teacher working predominantly in our Learning Resource Base (LRB) class.

Required for: September 2023 or as soon as possible after this date.

Crindau Primary School, in the centre of Newport City, provides education for age 3-11 year olds. We host a Local Authority (LA) Learning Resource Base (LRB) which currently has 20 children split across 2 classes. The children in our LRB classes are fully integrated into the school community and many transfer to our cluster high school. We are looking for a teacher who is passionate about providing the best curriculum for all pupils including those children within the LRB classes.

This is a full time, permanent position, and although any teacher joining Crindau Primary School should be able, and willing, to work in any class across the school, in the first instance we are looking for a teacher with a passion for working with young children with additional learning needs. The position has arisen due to the current LRB teacher, who works with our youngest LRB children, being released from class 50% of the time to fulfil the demanding role of ALNCo. Therefor in the first year, this post would be teaching in our LRB class for 50% of the time, and teaching across the school for the other 50% of time. In September 2024 this position would become 100% teacher in one of our LRB classes.

We are looking for applicants to demonstrate their successes and experience of teaching children with additional learning needs, as well as those children in mainstream classes across a variety of age ranges. An understanding of the role of a LA LRB would be beneficial and wider professional learning about a range of ALN is essential to ensure the best provision for your pupils. A full understanding of, and a commitment to, the Curriculum for Wales is essential in order to drive our curriculum offer for our pupils in the school, by working collaboratively with colleagues both within, and outside our school.

The Governing Body are committed to appointing a teacher who:

- Has a genuine commitment and enthusiasm for teaching and learning

- Has a track record in delivering successful outcomes for pupils with ALN

- Has knowledge of ASD specific strategies including TEACCH and PECS

- Has confidence and determination and is ambitious for their future

- Is forward thinking, imaginative and visionary, and able to develop a caring, nurturing learning environment

- Is able to build a relationship of mutual respect with the pupils, families, staff and the Governing Body

- Will develop our commitment to working positively our school community

- Shares specialist best practice with other specialist and mainstream settings and outside agencies

- Demonstrates and promotes excellence, equality and high expectations for all

- Has excellent organisational and communication skills

This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (1974) and a comprehensive screening process will be undertaken on all applicants. This will include an enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.


If you have any queries about this position, please contact the school to speak to Mrs Marie Ward, Head teacher, who would be happy to elaborate further.
