Further details about the role

The students who attend Bents Green School all have complex needs linked to Autism and Communication and Interaction difficulties. Like many special schools the complexity of needs of our students is increasing and we are adapting our curriculum and offer to meet these more complex needs. We are passionate about ensuring that all our students receive the best education possible, preparing them for adult life outside school and helping them become respected and valued members of society.

It is an exciting time to join us and support this development and change. We are proud of our students, and see the unique potential in each individual. We are looking for teachers who share our core values and ethos, and people who are committed to ensuring that our students receive the highest quality education in a happy and secure environment.

Our staff are both dedicated and highly skilled and contribute to a very nurturing and kind school. We are proud to have been awarded the Trauma Informed Schools award, and building relationships with students and their families is central to our practice. Trauma Informed Practice has informed the development of our behaviour policy and practice, and any successful candidates will be able to demonstrate they share these values.

Bents Green school operates across three sites: Ringinglow, Gleadless and Westfield. Staff may be required to work across all sites in order to meet the needs of the students and school.

This vacancy is primarily at our Gleadless site, but as the school operates over 3 sites the successful applicant could be asked to work at any site.
