Teacher with SEND allowance job summary

A great opportunity has arisen for an outstanding and inspirational teacher who is self-motivated and keen to join Chalk Hill School.

SENDAT is a Multi Academy Trust focusing provision for a range of complex Special Educational Needs and Disabilities across the Eastern region.   As a residential Alternative Provision Academy, Chalk Hill is unique. We currently have space for 12 residential boys and 18 day boys with Social Emotional and Mental Health needs, aged 8-14. We are currently on an exciting journey of planned growth and development, as part of SENDAT and the Local Authority’s overall strategy for SEND provision in Suffolk.  

We are looking for a strong, creative and versatile team player who has patience, stamina and a good sense of humour.

Every new teacher at Chalk Hill benefits from high quality training and individual support.

A mainstream teacher looking for a new challenge or direction. 

A primary school middle leader seeking to broaden their experience in SEND/behaviour management as a preparation for senior leadership. 

A teacher experienced in SEND/Alternative Provision looking for a new opportunity in a different setting.
