Job summary

The alternative provision at Netherwood is looking for a well-qualified teacher with primary responsibility for leading the provision as well as delivering lessons across the multiple tiers. The alternative provision caters for secondary aged students aged 11-16, many of whom have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum and wishes to ensure this is reflected in the programmes of study available within the provision. Applications from teachers accustomed to working at secondary and primary level are encouraged, as will those from candidates who can demonstrate an ability to teach across a range of subject areas / themes.

We are looking for someone with QTS and experience within a mainstream or specialist setting (SEND/PRU school, for example), and/or experience of successful leadership in inclusion; someone who is comfortable working within a challenging but rewarding environment and possessing an ability to inspire excellent classroom and social behaviour. Colleagues joining the alternative provision set-up will be expected to be beacons of best practice for the whole of the staff team, and will contribute significantly to whole-school professional development.

This is an exciting time to be joining us, as our ambitions for the alternative provision grow - from a small provision of around 15 students to a 5-tiered structure able to accommodate up to 75 places when complete, including commissioned places where appropriate.
The key aim of the provision is to inspire students who face particular educational and social challenges to thrive in a more targeted environment, with a greater degree of consistency in curriculum delivery, and to reach heights they hitherto thought impossible.
