Job Description

A school in Hackney (E1) are keen to appoint a PPA teacher starting as soon as possible until at least Easter.

The SLT have decided that, as they reshuffle their staff due to the shutdown, they would like to appoint a full-time PPA teacher instead of covering in-house to explore the possibilities this would open up, as it would free other staff to do different tasks. This would allow other teaching staff more time to plan and do more focused group work, so should this go well the school are open to the idea of offering a permanent contract to the right candidate. Also, the school would like to utilise this staff for covering within school separate to PPA time, as there may be a spike in absences due to COVID-19.

The school is rated as GOOD and is 3-form entry throughout year groups Reception – Year 6. The Head is very welcoming and has a good record of developing younger staff members in their time at the school.

Above all else the school need an experienced and confident teacher, who is reliable enough to work across these varied classes and age groups without too many issues.
