SEMH Resource Base Teacher job summary

Our community is looking for a dedicated, motivational teacher to transform the lives of local children with Special Educational Needs.

At Brixington Primary Academy we are excited to be adding to Devon’s capacity in meeting the needs of children with SEND by developing a brand new Resource Base. This base will be for ten children with social, emotional and mental health needs who are presenting challenging behaviours.

This is an opportunity to join a school and a trust who are passionate about inclusion and committed to providing a positive, joyful and safe experience for all learners. The successful candidate will lead the day-to-day teaching in the base, supported by the school and trust leadership team, and oversee a small team of teaching assistants.

Are you a qualified teacher – with more than 3 years’ teaching experience - motivated to make a difference in children’s lives?

Are you committed to the view that children with SEMH needs, who present challenging behaviour, should aspire to succeed in mainstream education?

Can you find different and engaging ways to teach children who are not accessing mainstream education?

Please read our Job Description for more details about this exciting new position. To arrange visits to the school please contact the School Office on admin@brixington.devon.sch.uk

Closing date for applications is midday on Friday 3rd May 2024. Interviews to be confirmed.
