Horizons Academy Bexley is an alternative provision academy which works in close partnership with the two SEMH schools in London Borough of Bexley.  All three schools have recently joined London South East Academies Trust (LSEAT) having worked together for a number of years as a hard federation, New Horizons Federation.  Our schools provide education for pupils from Year 1 to Year 11 as well as working closely with our stakeholders in creating solutions for pupils at risk of permanent exclusion.  Horizons Academy is an all through school which is commissioned by the Local Authority to provide education for permanently excluded pupils but also offers a broad range of preventative programmes and reintegration support to enable pupils to access education which is most appropriately matched to their needs.  

We are currently seeking an experienced KS1 Primary Teacher who will provide education to KS1 pupils who attend the school on short term placements not in excess of 14 weeks. The successful candidate will join a committed team of staff who strive to achieve best outcomes for our learners and work relentlessly with them to address the social, emotional and behavioural difficulties which have been a barrier to success in mainstream schools.  We are very much a learning environment and promote high expectations of behaviour and aspirational goals for all of our pupils whilst acknowledging that progress requires endless patience and perseverance to overcome the often low self esteem and external issues presented by our population.   

This is an opportunity for an experienced and skilled practitioner to make a real difference to children’s lives.  A proven background in managing challenging behaviour alongside evidence of securing successful academic outcomes are essential requirements.    

If you have enthusiasm, commitment and a desire to work with some of the most vulnerable and complex young people in our community, we would welcome your application.  High aspirations and a relentless approach towards excellence are the key skills we are looking for along with evidence of previous outstanding classroom teaching.  

For further information and an informal conversation about the role, please contact Jo Southby (Executive Head Teacher) on 0208 312 2746.  

For an application form, please contact Julie Garside (Business Manager julie.garside@newhorizonsfederation.org.uk)
