We are seeking to appoint 2 enthusiastic and outstanding class teachers to teach full-time from September 2024, working with children and young people with complex needs. Please see the full Job Description and Person Specification for more information.

The successful candidate will:

  • Be able to build a warm, respectful ethos with pupils, where every child’s efforts and achievements are valued, and take pride in these.
  • Be a good teacher who is reflective and always striving to improve and move forward.
  • Be enthusiastic, approachable and have an open and positive attitude.
  • Be both able and willing to share their own good practice and be open to developing this through implementing the advice of colleagues.

We are offering you:

  • The opportunity to work in a ‘good’ school
  • An experienced, friendly and supportive staff team.
  • A positive and caring ethos with children at the heart of all we do.

Kennet Valley Primary School is an effective and inclusive school, with high expectations of all its children. We have a strong staff team, good relationships with parents and the local community, extremely supportive governors and positive links with our Local Authority. There are good facilities as well as extensive grounds that provide a wide range of outdoor learning opportunities. This is a great opportunity for a hard working individual, who is committed to the progress of every child.

The new unit will cater for small classes of children with Autism/Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. Teachers will work closely with the Unit Lead whilst still being part of the Kennet Valley Team. Applications are welcome from teachers already in special education as well as teachers in a mainstream setting with a desire to support children with complex SEND and an understanding of what this involves.
