An exciting opportunity has arisen for someone to join the SEND team at Risedale, serving the Catterick and Colburn community.

If you are an exceptional and inspirational teacher who would be able to add expertise to our SEND team then we would love to hear from you. We are looking for a person with drive and ambition who will inspire and enthuse our pupils and instil in them a belief in themselves and a desire to learn. The role will require an individual who is creative, not afraid to think outside the box and with the ability to demonstrate resilience and experience of delivering innovative teaching methods to engage some young people with complex needs.

At Risedale School, the SEND team is a dedicated group of inspirational colleagues who put the children at the very heart of all they do. We are at an exciting stage in our development; at present, a bespoke unit is being remodelled and resourced to allow for an innovative range of small group and one to one interventions. In addition, you will teach a small ‘nurture’ group in Years 7 and 8, delivering English, maths and other bespoke learning based on the Thrive approach.

We are looking to appoint a forward-thinking, innovative and creative specialist. The successful candidate will be open to new ideas and committed to the philosophy of the school and ready to work hard to support the social and academic progress of SEN pupils.

The school offers all employees bespoke training and support; a highly cohesive and supportive staff team; outstanding CPD including up to date individualised action research; the opportunity to develop skills and interests through extra-curricular clubs and a chance to join Risedale at a very important point in the school’s development.
