St Dominic’s School is a special academy in Surrey and provides exceptional education for pupils and students aged 7-19 typically with a primary diagnosis of Speech Language & Communication Needs and/or Autistic Spectrum Condition. The school is located in Hambledon, close to Witley, Milford, Guildford and Godalming.
We are part of Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust (OHC&AT), a specialist Trust with 12 Academies and 7 College Centres across London, Surrey and Sussex.
At St Dominic’s we believe passionately in a multi-disciplinary, ‘needs led’ approach to meeting each child’s and young person’s needs, resulting in carefully managed groupings, including specialist intervention work from our in house therapeutic team.
The school works closely in partnership with families, referring authorities and external agencies to coordinate the best possible education, care, guidance and support for its pupils and students.
St Dominic’s has been through a period of rapid growth and change. We are therefore seeking dynamic and committed staff, who share our organisational values, to work alongside our newly appointed leadership team.
Due to our school’s expansion we are looking to appoint two motivated and enthusiastic primary trained teachers who are able to flexibly deliver a primary style model of teaching and learning to our pupils in our Lower School which includes Years 3 to 8.
Candidates must be able to convey core subjects and topic-based learning to pupils and students who have a range of abilities and be able to monitor and assess to ensure the best possible progress. The successful candidate will have a commitment to developing outstanding practice and the desire and drive to improve educational outcomes and life chances for our very special pupils and students.
Applications are welcome from UQTs, NQTs and experienced teachers who have the ability to think creatively and are resilient and motivated by challenges.
Experience of working within a SEN setting and experience of teaching higher KS2 and lower KS3 is desirable but not essential.
Benefits include: Free car parking, Lunch provided on site, Employee Assistance Programme and membership to Perkbox.
For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Amme Pryor, Head of Lower School, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please contact Alison Corbett, HR & Recruitment Officer by email at email@example.com for further information or to arrange a visit to the school.
