English Teacher required from September - PERMANENT

Job description

I am looking for an English Teacher to support students in KS2 - KS4 with ASC, Complex Needs and Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties from September

The booking is to start ASAP and the school are looking for someone on a permanent basis.

The school choose to deliver the English Curriculum in a creative and enjoyable way, using lots of colourful books, films and plays. English no longer becomes the subject to be feared and children are encouraged to use their imagination, develop their opinions, give their views and express themselves. They also learn to listen to others. Other activities include debates, drama, creative writing, media and ICT. Pupils are challenged in a way that works for the individual child to ensure they make progress and develop life skills. Pupils achieve Functional skills and/or GCSE level English.

The school ranges in age from 9-16 therefore the Head Teacher will consider candidates from Primary and Secondary environments. Class sizes are small, between 5-8 pupils but the school is growing in numbers, steadily.

The school caters for pupils with special needs including Social, Emotional, Mental Health, Behavioural Difficulties, ASC, ADHD and aims to provide them access to an environment that is tailored to meet all their identified needs. The school offers a change from mainstream education, challenges their expectations and finds ways to inspire success in preparation for working life.

The Head Teacher is interested in candidates who have worked in a PRU / Alternative Provision and would consider those from a mainstream environment, provided they have strong behaviour management and experience working with vulnerable students. You MUST have the skill set and knowledge to handle challenging behaviour appropriately and the understanding of pupils who have mental health difficulties. The pupils require nurture, care and guidance and you must be 'thick-skinned,' energetic, empathetic, non-judgemental with a can-do attitude.

If you think you have what it takes and would love the opportunity to showcase yourself, with the view of securing yourself an exciting opportunity in this thriving environment, please send a copy of your CV ASAP as the school would like to have an idea as to who is interested in ASAP!

Please call me on 01772 842155 if interested!
