About Cuckmere House School

The SABDEN Multi Academy Trust, based across East Sussex, is an aspirational and supportive Trust, aiming to create a warm, caring, stable, supportive environment in which all pupils and staff feel safe. We are three special schools, a secure children’s home, a large countywide alternative provision and a vocationally focussed Free School. We strive to discover success through learning, self-belief and achievement. Pupils are empowered to take responsibility through a personalised curriculum supported by secure relationships with staff and strong partnerships with parents and carers.

Lansdowne Secure Children’s Home and School is located in Halisham and is part Cuckmere House School, which is part of the SABDEN Multi Academy Trust and also works in partnership with ESCC. We offer young people in crisis a safe, therapeutic and physically secure environment and provide a full-time education designed to re-engage residents in their learning. The school team is experienced, supportive and committed to delivering the highest quality learning experience.

We have a great opportunity for a teacher specialising in PE to work with the young people within our school. The home has been undergoing an expansion programme and we are looking to appoint an energetic teacher, to engage children and young people with complex emotional and learning needs, in physical activity, formal PE and supporting learning across the wider curriculum.
