The Loyne Specialist School is a highly successful special school with 110 pupils on roll aged 2-19 with a range of learning difficulties, physical and sensory impairments. The Loyne has been rated by Ofsted as `Outstanding¿ for four consecutive inspections. In September 2019 we also successfully launched our independent Post 19 - 25 provision, 'Grizedale'.

We are now seeking to recruit a dedicated and enthusiastic full time teacher to join our well established staff team. The school has an exceptionally thorough approach to treating every pupil as an individual and we are looking for a teacher who can demonstrate a commitment to developing our pupil¿s skills and knowledge further through our holistic curriculum. Applicants should have a good understanding of effective teaching methods especially those relating to communication.

This position could be based in any of our age phases and will require the successful candidate to have knowledge of child development alongside a working knowledge of the primary curriculum. The successful candidates must also be able to demonstrate effective skills in working with a team of Learning Assistants to ensure structure, continuity and effective care within their class. You must have a resilient work ethic, a flexible attitude, and be prepared to deal with challenging behaviour.

Applications are warmly welcomed from NQT¿s who are excited about a challenging first post as well as from experienced teachers in mainstream and special schools. The successful candidate must demonstrate a commitment to inclusion and working in partnership with all stakeholders. Applicants must demonstrate some experience of working with individuals with SEND.

The post you are applying for is covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013). If successful you will be required to apply to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for a 'disclosure'. Information provided by you or the Disclosure and Barring Service will be dealt with in a confidential manner in accordance with the DBS's Code of Practice. You may view the Code of Practice on the DBS website at or alternatively a copy is available on request.
