Further details about the role

Clarendon Academy is seeking to appoint an experienced teacher to teach in a new Resource Base for students with complex Cognition and Learning needs at the school. This is a wonderful opportunity to be in at the outset of this exciting new venture to provide support for secondary aged students who require a more specialist provision than mainstream, but who do not need a special school.

Resource Base Designation: Complex Cognition and Learning needs

The Resource Base is due to open in September 2023 and during the first year will cater for up to 10 young people all of whom will have EHCPs. The Base will be accommodated in a large, newly refurbished area of the school with access to its own classrooms, life skills and art room, toilet facilities, office and outside space. Students will follow the Clarendon curriculum and have opportunities to work on their individual outcomes as recorded in their EHCP.

Our aim is to ensure that the Resource Base is providing the highest standard of education for the pupils in its care and you will be an essential team member in ensuring this. You will work closely with the Head of SEND for Acorn Education Trust and the Senior Leadership team of the school to deliver our vision.

As a teacher of Resource Base, you will be passionate about teaching children with learning difficulties and speech, language and communication needs as well as maintaining high standards. You will be committed to developing expertise in the teaching of pupils with SEND and will be able to work effectively in a growing team.
