Class Teacher job summary

We are a looking to expand our fabulous teaching team here at GSSC and you might be just the person we are looking for to join the multi-disciplinary team and make a real difference in the lives of our wonderfully resilient young people

We pride ourselves on being a cheerful, resilient group of professionals and are looking for an exceptional, forward-thinking practitioner who understands that as teachers we must always continue to learn ourselves! We are particularly interested in primary trained individuals who may have experience of a specialist provision, and or leading Maths or Science and the desire to continue to develop their knowledge within a Special School setting.

You would need to be enthusiastic, fun and flexible in the way you open up the world for our pupils. Creativity is the key in our setting where learning comes to life every day in every imaginable way. We need a teacher who is excited by and keen to be part of challenges and opportunities that go way beyond the classroom. Our adventures have included travelling to space, travelling the globe, hosting and attending festivals and so much more! A penchant for dressing up is on our essential list of course!

Although you will need a strong pedagogy as your foundation, we will offer a bespoke induction package and the opportunity to continue your own professional development and of course our young people will teach you so much too! Our setting will surprise you – we have therapy suites, a hydro pool, movement and rebound studios and our whole setting is set up to be inclusive and accessible to all our young people.

As a specialist secondary school, we strive to meet the needs of a very special and unique cohort, with a broad spectrum of needs, a mixture of learners who may have profound and multiple learning disabilities, severe learning disabilities, physical disability, ASD, social and communication learning needs and associated behaviours as well as learners with complex medical needs.

Your future team is vast. You’ll work with and learn from physios, occupational therapists, music therapists, the school nursing team and alongside our fabulous Health aides and Teaching Assistants who will support you to meet the needs of your pupils. We also have a fabulous relationship with the Thrive Occupational Therapy team who work with us to build thorough sensory profiles and focus on the resilience and readiness for learning for every young person. We are equally proud of the Conductive Education department led by our specialist teacher and supported by CE assistants who extend the teams work into the classrooms and our pupil’s daily lives. Of course, the team is far wider than this, including working with NMPAT and Rocksteady. With our complex medical and resilience for learning hub we work alongside specialists to ensure extended expert level care for all young people.

As a teacher at GSSC your skills will be developed and valued and your voice will be heard; you will play an important role in developing our exciting RIDE curriculum and also in making a real difference to our young people and their families.

So, what are you waiting for? Your future career is calling…!

Let our world be your world!
