Job/Person Summary

We are very excited to be offering a rare opportunity for outstanding teachers to join our unique hospital school outreach team. This team provides high quality teaching for children with chronic or significant medical conditions currently affecting their ability to attend school.

Our outreach teachers work with individuals or small groups of children in a variety of settings, including homes, public libraries, hospital classrooms and mainstream school inclusion provisions. The primary aim of the provision is to provide regular education for these young people to prevent them falling behind during a period of ill-health, and to support their reintegration back into school as soon as they are well enough.

All outreach teachers are employed under the same conditions as the onsite Hospital School teaching team (STPCD) in relation to CPD, line management, curriculum support and staff wellbeing networks. We ask teachers to attend weekly morning briefings and staff meetings on site.

We welcome applications from all phase teachers, although there will be a strong secondary teaching element to the role. Please note that this position is not suitable for Early Career Teachers. 

The applicant will need to be flexible and prepared to teach a range of curriculum subjects to pupils across all primary and secondary age ranges. Previous experience across all of these age ranges and subjects is not essential but professional willingness and flexibility to learn is.

You will need to have a car to travel between lessons. We will reimburse all travel expenses.




The Jefferys Education Partnership is part of an umbrella Trust called the Hamwic Education Trust. At the Hamwic Education Trust we offer unique opportunities for those individuals that excel in education.

We aim to deliver an outstanding education to our pupils and to do so we must employ outstanding people.

We offer a training pathway for all employees including teachers, support staff and our middle and senior leaders.

Our staff have opportunities to work on cross phase projects and to work in other schools within the Trust in order to gain invaluable experience and enhance their skills.

Application Procedure
