You will be able to teach pupils of all ages and have the commitment to academic excellence and high classroom standards. The successful candidate will have excellent specialist knowledge and be able to motivate students through inspirational teaching. This is an excellent opportunity for a talented teacher to join a thriving school.

About Epinay Business and Enterprise School
Epinay School is an Ofsted rated Outstanding school which caters for children and young people with a wide range of special educational and complex needs.
The school caters for children and young people with significant learning difficulties and/or diagnosed learning disabilities who are working at a level of 3- 4 years behind their peers and have limited ability to listen, process information, think, read, write, spell or do mathematical calculations effectively.
In addition to their learning needs, the children and young people may have some social vulnerability as well as some difficulties with their functional skills, speech and language communication needs and a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition.
The school has some children who have anxiety and mental health difficulties and require additional support to meet their emotional needs, however, they do not present with disruptive behaviours.
A small number of our children have a severe learning difficulty (SLD) and/or disability, which means that they find it difficult to understand, learn and remember new skills. These students have problems with both the acquisition of skills and their application to new situations and possible sensory issues or poor coordination.
As a school we create a safe and inclusive centre of excellence by providing a stimulating environment where learners achieve challenging and inspirational targets in order to develop as happy, confident and independent learners who are prepared for adulthood.
