SEN Teacher – fixed term maternity cover

The ability to teach Science would be an advantage


Although we are looking to appoint from February 2018, the employment start date will depend on the availability of the successful candidate. The period of maternity is likely to last for 12-15 months.

We are looking to appoint a highly motivated and enthusiastic full-time teacher for our Designated Specialist Provision which has 24 students with complex learning difficulties. The successful candidate will have experience of working with students with a range of complex needs including Severe Learning Difficulties, communication and interaction difficulties and social, emotional and mental health needs and will join a team of professionals with a high level of commitment to these young people. The ability to teach Science would be an advantage.

This post is particularly suitable for an inspiring practitioner who can teach across the curriculum and has experience of teaching students working below National Curriculum level 3.  You will be expected to demonstrate competency in using a range of teaching strategies to engage and develop students’ understanding to ensure they reach their full potential and be able to make a significant contribution towards supporting our drive to continue raising achievement and standards. 

We are an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school that is extremely popular and oversubscribed.  We moved into our new school building in September 2008 and have outstanding facilities and a state of the art learning environment.

We are proud of our comprehensive school principles and our daily work is centred on four key values; summarised as together we can make a difference; resilient to change; ambitious to excel and caring for the lives of individuals. We are a school with great aspirations; proud of our history and heritage, yet always looking to the future – celebrating student well-being, high academic standards and achievement for all. Success at school is the result of students, parents/carers and teachers working together.
