We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated lead teacher for Polaris, our specialist unit for children with communication and interaction difficulties and ASD. There are 21 KS3 and KS4 students who attend the provision, all of whom have EHCPs. In Polaris, we aim to ensure that all of our students have access to an appropriate education allowing them to reach their full potential. The role involves advocating for the children and supporting colleagues in the main school when the children attend mainstream lessons, teaching mainly English and Maths in the unit at KS3 and 4, delivering interventions in small groups in line with the EHCPs, and liaising and working with multiagency colleagues to ensure the students’ needs are being met. Statutory work, such as annual reviews, will be supported by our SENDCO, and this would be an ideal opportunity for someone who wishes to become a SENDCO and complete SENDCO training.
If you think you have what it takes to be successful in this role, even if you don’t have experience or qualifications that meets all the requirements, we would love to hear from you. Please apply as we may be able to support you in any areas for development or we may have alternative roles that are a good fit for you. We would appreciate the opportunity to consider your application.
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.
Unity Schools Partnership is committed to safer recruitment, equal opportunities, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be required.
