Engagement

If you share our values of teamwork, inclusion and innovation and have high expectations of what children can achieve, we would love to hear from you. We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic teacher to join our existing committed team. The post would suit someone with sound knowledge of child development and experience of working with children and young people with Special Educational Needs.

We are a Community Special School for children and young people from the ages of 2-19 years, with 102 on roll. Our pupils have severe learning difficulties, or profound and multiple learning difficulties. The designation of the school means that pupils typically have complex needs, and medical needs requiring a high degree of differentiation and bespoke provision. In most cases our pupils will be working below the national curriculum and the equivalent of Expected Levels for NCY1.

We value a happy, healthy and secure learning environment in which all the needs of pupils are met, enabling each young person to reach their individual potential and to maximise their independence. We provide pupils with opportunities for integrated educational experiences in the nursery, primary and secondary schools whose sites we share with mainstream schools.

We are judged Good by Ofsted (May 2016) and we are ambitious in our vision for the future provision for our pupils. We offer small classes, typically less than 10 pupils per class, working within large teams of support staff and additional NHS therapists, and have newly furbished high-spec learning spaces through most of the school. We have a unique relationship with Wheatley Nursery School who share our site. There are exciting times ahead as we are expanding on both sites, with new secondary classrooms due to open this year.
