We are a specialist Academy for Key Stage 1 - 4 students who have been permanently excluded or close to permanent exclusion from Mainstream School across Bristol and BaNES. Most of our young people attend with us on a short-term basis however some young people remain with us for longer. Some young people that join us have underling SEN needs including SEMH, SLCN and/or ASD. We recognise the importance of an inclusive approach to meeting young people’s needs and promoting their learning. The main personal attributes we are looking for is the capacity to enthuse, engage and inspire our young people through a deep understanding of the curriculum content and concepts with the ability to enliven the subject to meet a range of needs. Due to the nature of our young people and historic gaps in education, this post requires a good knowledge and understanding of the subject and exam frameworks to identify gaps in learning and provide accurate individualised targets to ensure pupils progress and learning are in line with their mainstream peers. This post represents an excellent opportunity for either a teacher eager to enter special school teaching or someone already experienced in this sphere of education. If you are an outstanding practitioner who is passionate about making learning effective and enjoyable, have the highest levels of integrity as well as excellent communication skills and can contribute to our journey in driving forward English in order to facilitate learning experiences that gives young people the opportunity to achieve their individual potential.
