Assistant Head Teacher

Brimble Hill Special SchoolSwindon

Thank you for your interest in the role of Assistant Head Teacher at Brimble Hill School.

We are looking to expand our leadership team to assist in the day to day running of our Education Provision (EP).

As an EP, we would welcome applications from experienced teachers from successful schools/EPs, with empathy, enthusiasm and passion, who have the desire to work with children and young people with a range of differing abilities and a wish to support them to play an active and positive role in their communities.

Brimble Hill is part of the Brunel SEN MAT (BSM) which is a multi-academy trust for children and young people aged 0-25, specialising in the special education sector. BSM was established in March 2016 and now in January 2021, with the establishment of the subsidiary company, Brunel Education, there are 6 fabulous SEND provisions working together to deliver exceptional learning experiences.

Our catchment area is throughout Swindon and there are currently 97 children on its roll. We are an EP for pupils with severe (SLD) and profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) aged 2-11 years and/or Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). Our pupils will often have additional complex needs. Attainment on entry for all our children and young people is well below the national age-related expectations and all our pupils have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

We are looking for an aspiring senior leader who can work with the established team of leaders and teachers to further develop our EPs potential. You must have a passion for working in SEND with knowledge of primary education; especially the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The school delivers its curriculum through an activity-based approach, modelled on the EYFS. 

This is a great time to join our EP, with the opportunity to work alongside the leadership team to make a significant impact as our new Assistant Head Teacher to help us achieve our vision and ambition for our children.
