Job summary

We are seeking to appoint a talented, creative and innovative practitioner to lead our growing Primary provision. You will be instrumental in furthering the magic we create as we further expand our existing provision by two additional classes. Our primary provision will provide for 40 students in the 4-11 age range with Complex ASD and additional needs from July 2021.

You should have the ability to lead, inspire and support an excellent team of teachers and teaching assistants in further developing effective classroom practice for complex children. It is clear that the successful candidate will have to be an outstanding classroom practitioner themselves. The post will include teaching a range of primary subjects in EYFS-KS2 and having responsibility for curriculum developments with the academy Subject Leaders.

You should have a clear understanding about effective teaching and learning, curriculum development, raising and sustaining achievement, and the care and support of students with a range of SEND. You should have a vision and a drive to deliver meaningful and personalised curricula which provide stretch and challenge enabling all students to achieve.

You should be a good communicator; able to engage effectively with young children and their parents/carers on a daily basis. Ideally, you should have experience of working with non-verbal students and be familiar with alternative forms of communication, sensory processing issues, and a clear understanding of behaviour as a learning need.
