About Riverside School

We are a successful co-educational secondary special school within the London Borough of Haringey in North London. We are always mindful that we need to deliver positive outcomes for all, according to our motto: ‘Learning to Live Life to the Full’. We aim to develop and nurture happy and fulfilled students whilst ensuring that they have the highest possible levels of independence before they move on to post-16, or post-19 education and later adult life.

The post
We are looking to recruit a strong Leader for our Team 2, following the retirement of our current post-holder. We aim to appoint an innovative, committed and talented teacher to join the Senior Management Team in leading the school forward together on our journey of continuing improvement whilst also taking responsibility for teaching core subjects to a Team 2 class.

About Riverside
We provide 140 student places in years 7-14 across 5 teams for students with a wide range of general, moderate, complex, severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties. Approximately 66% of the school’s population have a diagnosis of autism.
Each team consists of 4 classes, organised according to common levels of independence and needs, divided by key stage rather than year group.
Team 1: MLD (11-16, KS3/4) Progress 8+, formal curriculum
Team 2: SLD (11-16, KS3/4) Progress 8+/8, adapted curriculum
Team 3: SLD (11-16, KS3/4) Sensory Progress 8
Team 4: PMLD (11-19, KS3/4/5) Developmental 8
Team 5: MLD/SLD (16-19, KS5) Specialised multi-dimensional curriculum
Classteachers deliver English, maths, science, PSHEE, (and accredited courses in KS4). Specialist teachers deliver art, music, PE and food technology, (also computing with the Progress 8+ classes).

Team Leaders
Each team is led by a Team Leader who manages the curriculum, monitors the quality of teaching and learning in their team, and ensures that there are regular opportunities in the team for sharing good practice. They will also take the role of a classteacher for one of the classes in the team. In addition to whole school weekly assemblies, each team has their own weekly assembly.

Our achievements
The school’s achievements are recognised through a range of awards including the National Autistic Society (NAS) Certificate of Quality Autism Provision - 2017, and the National Association of Advisors for Computers in Education Third Millennium Award.
We are a Challenge Partners school and our 2019 Quality Audit Review gave us an estimated Ofsted grade of ‘Outstanding’:
‘Across all the teams teaching and learning is characterised by very positive relationships between students and staff, leading to many outstanding lessons and robust progress in all.’ ‘Behaviour for learning is outstanding, with high levels of engagement from students.’
‘The school is outward-facing and actively seeks partnerships with those looking to enhance the life chances of its students. Current partnerships include local businesses, schools and charities where students attend work experience placements. The link with a Slovenian special school enables students to go on residential trips alongside trips in the UK. Other partnerships include after-school and holiday clubs and close links with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and the National Theatre.’

What we can offer
Becoming a Team Leader at Riverside means joining a busy, vibrant, outward-facing and caring community working closely with a loyal, supportive and experienced SMT.
