The Governors and Headteacher are looking to appoint a talented and enthusiastic class teacher to join our Outstanding School to cover a Maternity Leave. The school caters for 171 learners aged 4-16 with a wide range of complex needs.

We invite applications from outstanding classroom practitioners who are able to deliver a full, personalised curriculum. Applications are welcomed from both NQTs and experienced teachers, in particular those with experience of teaching learners with complex needs.
The successful candidate will have knowledge of child development and be able to facilitate progress through creative teaching methods and technologies. They will have a strong commitment to working with learners with a wide range of special educational needs and disabilities.

The candidate must demonstrate a commitment to inclusion and working in partnership with all stakeholders.
