English Teacher- Special Educational Needs Setting

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an English teacher with an interest in working with students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. A brand new, state of the art SEND school has opened in Bexley with a need for a English Teacher from February. The SEND school works alongside a mainstream secondary school within the academy trust to provide an integrated curriculum for their students who all have Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD).

The successful candidate will have an excellent understanding of assessments within mainstream education and will be able to lead the way in integrating an adapted assessment model within the SEND setting. Class sizes are a maximum of 11 pupils with additional support in the form of a teaching assistant giving the teacher the opportunity to make a significant impact on their student's learning.

The school is well resourced and currently in a period of expansion and growth. This September, they moved into a new building and expanded to include year 9. Given this expansion happened off the back of a period of school closures as a result of Covid-19, the school is keen to find members of staff who are flexible, amenable and come with a proactive attitude and team ethic.

Applications are encouraged from those who would like to take a step up and progress within their teaching careers. A TLR is available for Subject Lead responsibilities. Interviews will take place virtually and applicants will be assessed as they apply.
