Job Description

You will deliver quality education to assigned pupils and contribute to the professional, corporate life of the school in relation to pupils, staff and appropriate external bodies within the agreements of the Local Negotiating Committee for Teachers and the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers.  Primary School teaching would be desirable, however not essential.

This is a network post. Although the vacancy is for the Inverurie cluster, the hours are currently allocated to Primary Schools in the Network.

Young people within our Enhanced provision setting have more complex needs than their mainstream classmates, and require a nurturing environment where they can learn through a more flexible curriculum pathway. If successful in being appointed, you will be responsible for providing specialist interventions, and a tailored curriculum that can be delivered in partnership with other providers. The key to this post is providing the right support, in the right place, at the right time, and enabling young people to access learning. This may include (but is not restricted to) direct working on communication, language and number development, on an outreach basis to varous schools within our network. The young people you will get to know and work with may require support to work around a range of barriers to learning including (but not restricted to) Autism, Dyslexia, physical and/or medical needs, mental health conditions, and sensory needs.

The Inverurie Cluster comprises of Hatton of Fintray Primary, Keithhall Primary, Kellands Primary, Market Place Primary, Newmachar Primary, Oyne Primary, Port Elphinstone Primary, Strathburn Primary and Inverurie Academy.  There are two Enhanced Provision Centres  one located within Strathburn Primary, and one within Inverurie Academy. We work as a team across the cluster in order to share strategies and resources, and to learn from each other.
