Columbus provides for pupils aged between 3 and 19 with severe and profound learning difficulties, many of which also have autism. We deliver an excellent education to pupils across two campuses with some of the highest quality learning environments in the country for pupils with special needs. We provide a broad and ambitious curriculum that is profoundly focused on preparing learners for the future. We have high expectations of learners' progress across the key areas of communication and interaction; cognition and learning; sensory, physical health and development; social, emotional and mental health; and self help and independence. Each learner has a personalised curriculum closely related to their education, health and care plan (EHCP). The curriculum is designed through collaboration with parents and carers and, as necessary, other professionals and specialists.

We want pupils to be excited about coming to school and love learning. We want them to be motivated and challenged. Most of all, we want all of our pupils to be superbly well prepared for the future. To achieve this, teaching builds precisely on what pupils already know and can do.

We are looking for a teacher of pupils with profound and complex needs with a creative, inspirational approach to delivering the curriculum. The successful candidate will join our thriving school and make a real difference to the lives of our learners.
