SEN Art Teacher job summary

We are looking to recruit a resilient Teacher, with a passion for Art, to be part of the next stages in our improvement journey.

We are proud to share that our recent Ofsted inspection rated us as 'Good' across all key areas and shows our commitment to supporting staff "ensuring high morale, strong teamwork, and a culture of mutual care and respect."

This is a great opportunity for an experienced teacher looking to move into an optimistic and motivating environment, supported by effective leadership at all levels. As a key member of the teaching team, you will ensure high standards of teaching and learning are delivered to our students, offering a nurturing and topic-based curriculum, to ensure that they are able to access learning

Successful applicants will be qualified teachers with demonstrable experience of raising expectations and attainment in the classroom.

Hamilton School is an SEMH (Social, Emotional, and Mental Health) Special School in Reading educating up to 64 students with Education, Health Care Plans (EHCP). Our mission is to recognise each and every one of our students as individuals, and to nurture their potential, developing the whole child through a therapeutic approach. This means that you would have to be a resilient character who is able to remain positive when dealing with challenging behaviour. The school is proud to have recently opened its doors to a state-of-the-art building with wonderful new facilities for both pupils and staff.

The aim for every school in the Trust, whilst espousing their values and ethos, and having a core of common policies and procedures, will serve its own community’s needs in a bespoke way and also create a feeling of community within its own school. In that way all the potential and talents of every child and every member of staff will be nurtured.

Being part of the Maiden Erlegh Trust also offers a range of career opportunities across our schools. For our teaching team we offer a flexible CPD programme which staff can tailor to their own needs which includes coaching and training for new entrants to the profession and to support career returners.

We have a proven track record of supporting ambitious staff in to middle and senior leadership posts and can offer opportunities to broaden your impact on the sector through the work of the Maiden Erlegh Institute. We are very happy to discuss flexible working arrangements, including part-time working and job-sharing
