Roding Primary School and Nursery with provision for deaf children is a welcoming school where everyone is Free To Achieve.

Previous experience of working in either Early Years or Key Stage 1 with children with identified learning needs would be desirable.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend a further selection process which will include a short practical task with children, a maths test based on expected Year 6 standards and a short writing task. Only candidates successful in these tasks will proceed to a formal interview.

We can offer you:

  • A very friendly and supportive staff and children who love to learn
