We are looking for a teacher who is committed and passionate about SEND to work in our newly opened SEMH provision( commissioned for 6 places.) We currently have 5 children from year 2 to year 5. We have high ambition for the children across all areas- academic achievements and social and emotional resilience.
The successful candidate will be responsible for planning a highly engaging adaptive curriculum, which ensures needs are met and pupils are able to thrive and make progress. (Planning for all year groups is in place and can be used and adapted) The successful teacher needs to love being outdoors whatever the weather and be willing to think big to meet the needs of pupils.
The provision is staffed with a full time teacher, a part time HLTA, two teaching assistants as well as supported by a lead teacher. As the day to day specialist teacher, you will be responsible for the deployment of staff and timetabling which is best suited to the cohort.
As a school, we are proud of our culture and ethos, which we have achieved through high expectations, honesty and strong teamwork. We recognise that different pupils need different pathways to ensure they thrive and can see themselves as successful. We want our provision pupils to access mainstream lessons where apprropiate.
We can offer a big team of supportive colleagues and a very involved SLT, who are all passionate about SEND. Our school is relatively new so facilities and environment are modern. Emotion coaching and trauma informed practice will drive the way that behaviour choices are managed alongside a consistent expectation and accountability.
