Welsh Government’s Covid-Catch-Up scheme is being spent on Maths, English and Science booster programmes and additional one to one tuition. To help progress and attainment following the closures, most secondary schools are putting the funding towards core subjects and more specifically, the KS3-4 pupils who were left without adequate technology, parental support or consistency.
The heads of core KS3 – 4 subjects are looking to appoint two specialist support staff to work in numeracy interventions. The ideal candidates will be confident in both their subject and developing rapport with pupils who are low ability and have mild special needs which makes concentrating in regular classroom set ups very overwhelming. Those who possess a flare for numeracy and child psychology and development are encouraged to apply.
The role is based in a comprehensive school in Cardiff Under a new headship, the school went from requiring urgent attention in their 2016 Estyn report, to being now rated as a ‘GOOD’ school in their recent report. The most impressive changes have been made towards quality of teaching and behavioural ethos. Both have been largely driven by an SLT team focused on creating a consistent and innovative learning environment and often like to refer to their methods as ‘thinking outside of the box!’
A large percentage of schools come from low income families and qualify for free school meals. The sixth form has been largely developed and a record number or pupils are staying on to complete A-levels at the school. GCSE results have also vastly improved across core areas, and the school are wanting to see progression in this area again.
You will be working in pupil interventions, supporting a qualified teacher in numeracy or literacy. A curriculum will be implemented and set for the pupils based on their additional learning needs, or specific strategies designed to encourage learning outside a mainstream classroom environment. Classes will generally consist of a small number of pupils or one to one work as the lessons will need to be tailored towards ability. Although some of the pupils will possess challenging behaviour, the role is designed for someone who wants to bring their subject specialism to the classroom and see a pupil improve.
A degree or demonstrated experience in maths, Science or English is essential
The role is full time and the ideal candidate must be able to start immediately after half term (November 2nd) for remainder of academic year.
