Job summary

This is an exciting opportunity for experienced teachers to be part of our Trust’s newly developed Specialist Provision which opened in September 2020. We have established a specialist education provision attached to 5 primary and secondary schools in the Haverhill and Newmarket areas.

The 18-place provision at Houldsworth Valley, ‘Apex’, is for KS2 pupils with communication and interaction needs, generally with an EHCP. You will teach alongside an established and supportive team, working closely with the head and staff across the school and through your expertise provide the education and support pupils with significant special needs require to flourish.

The aim of the specialist provision is to support pupils with more complex SEND needs to access appropriate provision that is inclusive within the communities they live. We are committed to a joined up all-through approach to support the children in our academies and beyond, providing high quality tailored specialist provision and supporting their families.

Our schools work in close partnership as a family of schools who share the same inclusive philosophy, where every child is a valued member of the school community. We believe that every child has the right to achieve their full potential and every family can expect to be supported to enable the home and school partnership to flourish. We have aspirational and high expectations for children with SEND and believe in providing a bespoke curriculum to meet children’s needs.

Unity Schools Partnership is a Multi Academy Trust of 30 schools which is committed to growth and career development. The Trust continues to satisfy its objectives in creating a network of specialist provisions working collaboratively with two further special schools also approved to open in Bury St. Edmunds and Romford, in addition to its current special schools in Haverhill and Ipswich.

The Trust is a values-driven organisation which is committed to developing young people as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. If you are ambitious and keen to work in a family of schools committed to these values, please consider applying for the post.

Significant training and development are available through opportunities for professional development, research, teacher training and collaboration between schools and across phases.
