Job summary

We are a special school for students ages 11-19 with severe learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorders and profound and multiple learning difficulties. We are looking for an energetic, dedicated and creative teacher to help our young people reach their full potential.

Our students join us as children at the age of 11. When they leave us they are young adults and need to be ready to be happy, healthy and confident adults with purpose and drive. This is why we not only place emphasis on academic excellence but also on a values based curriculum in order to promote emotional well-being, independence, high expectations and positive attitudes for all our students, that will last into their next destination and throughout their lives.

We are seeking to appoint an ambitious class teacher. Experience with teaching children and young people with special educational needs is desirable but not essential. Having ambition, energy and a positive attitude towards improving outcomes for children and young people with additional needs is much more important.

NQT’s with a strong interest in SEN are welcome to apply – we have an excellent track record of supporting our NQT’s during their induction period and beyond.

We are looking for someone who is:

A qualified and creative teacher
A dynamic team leader
An excellent communicator
Focused on improving long term outcomes for our young people

We can offer:
Happy students who love coming to school
Supportive and ambitious colleagues
Well resourced and engaging working environment
Broad training opportunities & excellent career progression opportunities
Links with other local special needs providers
Excellent wellbeing, lifestyle and discount package

Salary: TPS Main scale (London Fringe) plus SEN allowance. Upper Pay Scale may be available for a candidate with exceptional experience and leadership potential, who can demonstrate whole-school impact.

Candidates are encouraged to visit the school. Please contact our office on 01883 347740 to arrange a tour. Applications MUST be made on our application form only (no CV’s please), to be received by noon on Monday 18th October 2021. Interviews will be held on Thursday 21st October 2021 at the school. Please download the application form and return via email.

Clifton Hill School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check.
Interviews may be held for individual applicants earlier than the closing date by mutual agreement; early applications are encouraged and we reserve the right to close applications prior to the stated closing date.
