Nurture Teacher job summary

As part of further planned expansion, we are looking to recruit a full-time specialist SEN teacher to deliver high quality teaching and learning from September 2022. Key Stage 2-4 teaching experience alongside that of teaching SEN and/or Nurture training are essential for this role. Recent experience of teaching to GCSE level could also be an advantage, but our overriding priority is to find the right person to join our team.
This role is an exciting opportunity to further embed excellence in our school family by creating and developing a Nurture Class for students in Years 8 and 9. We already run successful Year 7 and KS4 classes based upon the Nurture principles; this additional role will enable us to support students across our full age and ability range by increasing capacity for students in Years 8 and 9 to access this approach to learning and holistic support. We are expanding in September 2022 into a newly refurbished building that will enable all of our nurture classes to have their own learning zone within our wider school community.

You will work with a team of staff, under the leadership of our Nurture Co-ordinator, to plan and deliver a broad and balanced curriculum based on nurture principles that enables students to make progress, achieving qualifications and securing a successful post 16 pathway. We are looking for a proactive, resilient teacher with the ability to plan, teach and assess a range of core subjects alongside a therapeutic curriculum, informed and developed by specialist therapeutic practitioners.

We are developing an excellent reputation for providing student-centred learning and support with the highest level of challenge to ensure our students succeed. If you want to help us deliver bespoke, innovative education tailored to the needs of our unique students, then we would love to hear from you.

Interview date: 26/5/2022

Additional allowances

MPR/UPR + SEN allowance (£2,290)
