Don’t judge a book by its cover – come and broaden your horizons!’


Fixed term contract.
 
Thomas Hindwell Primary Academy is a one and a half form entry primary (265 on roll and rising) with big ambitions as we continue to broaden our horizons for our children and our staff team. Over the last year we have overhauled our curriculum, leadership structure, provision, and learning environments and we enter 2019 looking very much to the future.

As a school we are very much a ‘sleeping giant’ and while our new approaches will take time to further embed we are seeing positive results. As a school we have adopted Talk for Writing, Effective Maths, a new Core Knowledge Curriculum and become an outward facing school working with our coastal primary partners to transform our children’s lives.
 
We are part of the David Ross Education Trust which is a family of 34 primary and secondary schools. As a staff colleague you will access CPD available locally as well as accessing leading teaching and leadership programmes through our Trust networks. Our ongoing development in terms of educational achievement and commitment to raising standards on the coast is at the forefront of our thinking – and we now have a Research Arm, a great enrichment programme and work closely as a partner of the Scarborough and Esk Valley Teaching Alliances.
 
Our opportunity
We are looking to appoint a colleague to support and guide one of our Year one pupils who is hearing impaired. Working closely with the designated Teacher of the Deaf through the Local Authority you will provide the communication support and help make sure the learning provided is adapted accordingly. While we are looking for current or prior experience of working with Deaf children you will work closely with our support staff and the LA specialist who will be in school at least every 2 weeks.
 
We are looking for: 

·       Current or prior experience of working with Deaf children 

·       A good understanding of the needs of Deaf pupils and strategies that will help ensure they make progress 

·       A colleague who is supportive, nurturing and seeks to make learning exciting and a positive experience

 
We can offer you: 

·       A school with a renewed focus who puts pastoral and nurture provision at its heart and an aspirational outlook for our children

·       An opportunity to be in a school that is rapidly improving

·       Happy, enthusiastic children who are thriving and have a thirst for learning 

·       A school which has had its learning environments inside and out redesigned and reworked to fully met the expectations of our children and staff 

·       An opportunity to work with an experienced and committed team and be part of a Trust which is diverse and puts the community at the heart of its agenda.

 
Join us and build a wonderful career in a school you are passionate about. Please contact the school office for more details.

 

We strongly recommend that you visit us so that we can share with you why we are so proud of our school, and you will get a chance to see what we have to offer. Please contact the school office on 01723 373110.

 

For an informal conversation you are welcome to contact James at North Yorkshire County Council at [email protected] or call 01609 534939/ 07966261249. 

Closing date: Wednesday 11th December 2019.

Interviews will be held on the 16th December 2019.

    • Congratulations on the new job! I literally just came back from an interview for a nursery assistant position hahaha.Crossing my fingers I get a call back heh. Lemme know when you're free to practice. Also feel like I need to caution you on the fact that I'm a proper proper beginner okay hahah
    • Hi all, I am a primary school teacher and think all children should learn at least the basics of BSL. I have always wanted to learn myself! So I am finally taking the plunge and hope to become fluent over time and able to introduce sign to the children further down the line. Happy to practice with others and speak to others as we go . 
    • Hi everyone!!! I'm a medical student and I'm trying to learn bel to hopefully be able to communicate with patients that may need it. If anyone wants to practice online I'm super happy to.  
    • I am the same - When I asked cambsdeaf they suggested choose a hand (preferably the one you would write with the most)  apparently it can get confusing so better just to choose one.  I chose left   but now i think ive made it more difficult as everyone else seems to sign the opposite. 
    • Hi, I'm at Uni aswell (though im 33!) I'm studying Early Childhood Studies about to start my second year in September alongside a new Teaching assistant job ! There's a few children who need further support and I have always wanted to learn BSL and I am happy to practice with you via computer! 
    • I'm Jackie or Jac , I would  like to understand  more about  sign language  and be able to converse at a basic level , hope maybe  someone  with a lot of patience can help me achieve  this 🤗
    • Im currently in uni in Leeds doing a course in childhood studies. Ive always wanted to learn BSL just never really had the time till now. Super excited with my progress but I haven't had the chance to practice it with another person so I don't actually know if im any good hahaha. If anyone is interested to practice over FT or discord or whatever let me know!
