About Foxwood Academy

Special Needs School

SEN Teacher – Primary
We require for September 2021 a class teacher in our popular, welcoming and supportive Academy.
These roles would suit an NQT, a teacher with SEN experience or a mainstream teacher looking to make a change. This may be a ‘subject lead’ role
for the right candidate. We would consider a part time appointment.
Foxwood Academy is a friendly 3-19 special school in Nottinghamshire, we were grade good by Ofsted in October 2017 and are looking to build a
strong and effective team to take us into 2022 and beyond.
Our students needs are varied but in general we cater for children and young people with moderate and severe learning difficulties. Many of our
children and young people have a diagnosis of Autism and a proportion have additional speech and language needs. Many of our children have spent
time in mainstream settings but move to Foxwood for a more specialised environment and curriculum.
Progression for students through the Academy is via different pathways to meet the diverse needs of the children. The Preparing for Adulthood (PfA)
framework is being used to reform our curriculum and includes outstanding provision in preparing young people for employment and their futures. We
offer accreditation to our 14-19 year old young people up to GCSE level.
The Academy has established a broad and balanced curriculum built on values and principles that ensure all students are well prepared for life in
modern Britain.

Arranging a visit to Foxwood Academy

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed (either in person or virtually) and recommended. Please contact the Academy office, who will be happy to arrange a mutually convenient
time for a visit.
