Unqualified Teacher’s Pay Scale
Kingsmead School is looking to appoint a well-qualified, dedicated and enthusiastic Student Engagement & Curriculum Support Coordinator to join a highly successful team. Applications from candidates with experience in working with young people are welcome. The position is fixed-term until 23 July 2021 in the first instance.
We are looking for a student focused, resilient, emotionally literate person to work with students who are struggling to engage in the mainstream curriculum. The postholder will work with students whose behaviour is at times challenging and will seek to provide an education appropriate to their needs.
The successful candidate will be responsible for devising an alternative curriculum experience for a small cohort of individuals. A key priority will be the re-engagement of these pupils and their successful transfer back into the mainstream curriculum. The candidate will be able to offer a subject or experience through which a process of re-engagement in school life can take place.
Kingsmead is a successful, oversubscribed 11-16 school with 921 students and 110 staff. Our students are enthusiastic, committed, motivated to learn and achieve very well. They participate in a wide range of activities outside of the classroom, including sport, music, drama and the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. The school has recently embarked on a £13 million rebuild programme.
Wiveliscombe nestles in the Vale of Taunton Deane between Exmoor, and both the Quantock and Blackdown Hills. It is placed in beautiful countryside and is a very well-serviced small town with a large rural catchment. We are 12 miles from the county town of Taunton and just 20 minutes from the M5 which makes both Bristol and Exeter close at hand.
