Dear Theo - I have recently found out my school (of some 6 years) will not be renewing my fixed term contract in September. This is due to a recent amalgamation and the funding pot becoming smaller. I am a small group (fully trained) teacher and work mostly with Pupil Premium children from Year 3 to Year 6, as well as children who struggle terribly with maths. I have been in that enviable position of loving my job so much, that being paid is like a bonus. i enjoy the difference I can make with these children, how their confidence grows and how positive they have become about their own learning. As the school will still need PP support I am half hoping they can offer me something for September. However, I need to be proactive myself and see what's out there and possibly spread my wings. How do I go about finding out which schools need such interventions for their children? It is not something I have seen advertised on my usual teachers' job site for Essex. Is it a case of writing to or calling many schools to find out? Many thanks.
