Dates: Apply by midday Wednesday 21/03/2018
Job title: Maths Teacher
Salary: Main Pay Scale/UPS Inner London salary range plus SEN1
(Head of Maths role with TLR for ideal candidate)
Contract type: Full Time
Contract term: Permanent
The senior management team at Newhaven are building a team of staff to help us to further develop an exciting new provision targeting young people with ASD and associated mental health issues.
A Maths teacher is required to join this rapidly expanding provision in the Royal Borough of Greenwich which meets the needs of young people with diagnoses of Autism and severe mental health concerns. You will ideally have experience with high functioning youngsters on the spectrum but more importantly will be an outstanding teacher with a can do attitude and the resilience to work with our challenging cohort. You will also be excited by the prospect of working in a dynamic, forward looking environment where risks are encouraged in order to achieve results.
Teachers will be trained to teach within KS2-5 and will preferably have experience of working with young people with ASD using specific interventions such as TEACCH, SPELL framework and SCERTS.
Newhaven King’s Park moved into a refitted building in 2016 with state of the art ICT and a full range of other facilities. The school will deliver the national curriculum with BTEC Workskills at post 16 and will focus particularly on visual arts, ICT and digital media. We currently have 48 students in years 7-14 and by September 2018 will reach our capacity of 55. The curriculum is developing to meet the social communication and emotional literacy needs of our cohort and covers a diversity of academic need from entry to A level. Each student has a personalised curriculum as much as necessary to ensure that they are engaged with education and making rapid progress towards independence and success.
We are looking for:
· Outstanding classroom practitioners with the ability to inspire others and a commitment to high standards
· A proven record of good academic results with students of all abilities
· Innovation and an ability to inspire students with a range of needs
· Preferably experience of working with students with ASD with experience of specific interventions outlined above
You will be trained to teach within KS2-5 and may have experience of young people with ASD. More importantly you will be a great teacher with a willingness to learn and who will be as excited as we are at this rare opportunity to build something special from the ground up.
Your role will be to play a key part in the delivery of the national curriculum to our small cohort. You will have a subject specialism but will also be flexible enough and take on responsibility for other subject areas depending on your strengths and the balance of the team. The senior leadership team is determined to give our students the best opportunities possible to become successful, responsible citizens with bright futures.
Closing date: Midday Wednesday 31/01/2018
