About the role

PEAK Academy is looking to recruit an exceptional Science Teacher to join our team. You’ll join a team of dedicated SEND professionals. You will lead, monitor and support the overall progress and development of students as a Science teacher, facilitating and encouraging a learning experience which provides our students with the opportunity to achieve their individual potential.

At Peak we know that many of our young people will have experienced adverse childhood experiences (ACE’s) and often early childhood trauma, as well as negative experiences in their education and schooling before they reach us. Therefore, at Peak, our provision is based around a strong curriculum base and draws on trauma informed practice and the utilisation of nurture approach practices to meet need.

About the School
Peak Academy is a day specialist provider of education in Dursley, Gloucestershire for children and young people aged from 11 to 16 years who have an SEMH profile. There are currently 60 pupils on roll but, in partnership with the LA we are working to diversify both number and age range.

PEAK’s aim is to build safe independent lives for the SEMH population through a process of understanding, support, and enablement. To achieve this goal the school looks at the unique impact social, emotional, and mental health experiences has on the individual child. From this we aim as a school to personalise the child’s curriculum, care, and therapeutic package to ensure every child achieves and experiences success and independence.

PEAK formally joined Reach South in August 2022. The Trust has secured capital to ensure the capacity for growth and diversification.

This is a unique opportunity to not only join the team at Peak, but also to work for a Trust within a framework of specialist provision. The Trust, our schools, and our pupils require teachers who are looking to be innovative, bold, and collaborative.  You can help to design your pupil’s curriculum and influence their future.  Your work will always be challenging and rewarding as a part of the Reach South Specialist team.

About the Trust
Reach South is a young and developing Trust which operates across the South West of England with the aim of delivering all through 3-19 education.    We operate 17 academies in Devon, Bournemouth, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.    We are building this Trust on a clear set of values, behaviours and curriculum principles. At the heart of those values and principles is a belief in our young people and a determination to support them to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become the successful citizens for today and all of their tomorrows.

Our core business is delivering exceptional education for children and young people with a mission to help all pupils aspire to achieve beyond the expectations that others put on them.    We do this through the development of a talented and committed workforce. In order to deliver exceptional opportunities for learning, we need highly motivated staff across all parts of the organisation.  

Those we recruit are able to demonstrate that they share our values, are highly motivated to work with colleagues, within and beyond their school, to continuously develop their skills and pursue professional excellence.
