What skills and experience we're looking for

This role is an exciting opportunity to further embed excellence in our school family by leading the new for September 2024, Primary Class for students in Year 7. We already run successful KS3 and KS4 classes based upon the Nurture principles; this new role enables us to support students across our full age and ability range by increasing capacity and access to this approach to learning. Each class has its own Teaching Assistant and a linked member of the Student & Family Support Team who work together to support our students to make progress in every area of their lives.

You will be part of our Haven team; Haven is our purpose-refurbished new building that is home to our nurture curriculum groups. It opened in September 2023 and provides wrap around care, education, and specialist support for students with a profile linked to learning, development, and sensory needs. Haven delivers our Engage Curriculum pathway which focuses on securing students’ literacy, numeracy and wider learning skills as part of their preparation for adulthood. All the students within this pathway are broadly similar in academic levels, specialist profile and sensory needs.

In this post you will deliver significant parts of the students’ timetable including core subjects at Key Stage 1 and 2, age and stage appropriate Preparation for Adulthood, Life skills and our specialist curriculum which covers communication, interaction and social skills. You will have experience in a SEND setting, including within a mainstream secondary setting, or experience as a KS 1 or 2 Teacher. Teaching experience across the primary age range, alongside that of teaching students with SEND and/or Nurture training are important for this role, but our overriding priority is to find the right person for our students and to join our team.

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 the national curriculum and nurture principles that enables students to make progress, achieving qualifications and securing a successful post 16 pathway. You will join a team whose core purpose is to equip students with the learning and life skills that will enable them to thrive as independent, skilled adults who can navigate the multiple demands of the wider world. We are looking for a proactive, resilient teacher with the ability and flexibility to plan, teach and assess a range of core subjects alongside a therapeutic curriculum, informed and developed by specialist therapeutic practitioners.

If you want to help us deliver bespoke, innovative education tailored to the needs of our students, enabling them to learn for lifelong success, then we would love to hear from you!
