We are seeking to appoint a talented, creative and innovative practitioner to our EYFS & Primary staff team who can be instrumental in furthering the magic we create in this very successful part of our Academy provision for 25 students in the 4-11 age range with Complex ASD and additional MLD/SLD. Children are taught in stage rather than age appropriate classes with personalised curriculums. Our successful provision has been open since September 2012. 

The successful candidates should have a clear understanding about effective teaching, raising and sustaining achievement in EYFS and KS1-2 and the care and support of complex young individuals. They should be a good communicator, able to engage effectively with young children and their parents/carers on a daily basis. Ideally, they should have experience of working with non-verbal students and be familiar with sign-language and PECS. 

We are looking for a quality teacher willing to join our excellent and happy team of staff to further develop Bradfields as a well known and respected Special Academy. 

The successful candidate will be provided with individualised professional support and induction; including accessing further professional qualifications as required. 

We would encourage interested applicants to arrange a visit to our academy as we are confident that such an opportunity will convince them that they would really love to work at Bradfields!
