What skills and experience we're looking for

You will be a qualified teacher with the ability to plan and teach to Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils. There will be significant gaps in the pupils’ knowledge and understanding which will need to be addressed and planned for. There is a real onus on teaching life skills which help to enhance their values, learning and interests as well as specialist 1:1 support. As a Class Teacher, you will be working closely with a range of support staff both inside and outside of the classroom. Class sizes are generally a maximum of 8 pupils.

What the school offers its staff

The school will require a fully qualified teacher. The role is open to more experienced teachers and NQT's. Recent experience and a genuine passion for working in an SEMH environment is desirable. CPI training or any other form of positive handling will be advantageous but not essential as appropriate training will be provided.

Further details about the role

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with children and young people with severe social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Due to the nature of the pupils, a fair, honest and assertive approach is needed. You must have strong classroom management skills and the ability to deal with complex and challenging behaviour.

Commitment to safeguarding

We will also consider carrying out an online search on shortlisted candidates to help identify any incidents or issues that are publicly available online. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
