Green Fold School is proud to be an innovative, forward thinking and creative in its approach to learning, both for pupils and the wider staff team. In the school’s recent Outstanding OFSTED May 2022 it was identified that:
‘Pupils at Green Fold School benefit from the expertise of well-trained staff who understand their needs. Staff support pupils very well to overcome any barriers that they might face.’
A comprehensive package of training and support is available for the successful candidate. We are looking for an individual who has a desire for teaching in SEN, who is keen to learn and deliver the personalised education that all pupils should have.
The pursuit of excellence is something we feel passionately about and are delighted to have this recognised by several nationally accredited awards in the last twelve months, including Communication Friendly Setting Status Award, National Autistic Society Accreditation, National Healthy Schools Award and the Eco School Award.
Green Fold School has rapidly grown over the last five years and as such is currently spread across four sites across the Borough. Significant investment during this expansion has made Green Fold an extremely well-resourced and maintained provision.
The two larger sites are based in Farnworth Bolton. We share the Upper Orchards Site with Cherry Tree Primary School. This provision meets the need of pupils with multiple, physical and severe learning difficulties from Reception to year 6.
The Lower Orchards Site also in Farnworth is an Autism specific provision for pupils from year 1 to year 6. The remainder of our reception classes are based in specialist EYFS provisions at The Saplings in Little Lever and within Alexandra Nursery School.
A candidate that is flexible to work across all provisions is beneficial, however the positions advertised will be closely matched to the successful candidate’s knowledge, experiences and skill set.
Green Fold has highest levels of safeguarding training and support, to ensure optimal systems are in place for all service users of the organisation
