Set in its own secure grounds, close to Frome town centre, North Hill House is an independent specialist day and residential school for boys and girls aged 6 to 19 years with autistic spectrum disorders and associated difficulties.
The school has been specifically designed to provide a strong focus for both UK and international students who need different levels of support to succeed, thus allowing young people with autistic spectrum disorders, Asperger's syndrome and associated difficulties to thrive effectively in an ever demanding and complex society. Students have ambitions to live and work as self reliant adults and we can help pupils to reach their goals with continued support, structure and guidance.
Residential provision up to 38 weeks is on the school site, with 52 week provision at Bath Road Children’s Home.
We require a motivated, skilled and resilient class teacher with SEN experience and a strong interest in supporting young people on the autistic spectrum. The role will suit a primary qualified teacher who can demonstrate energy, enthusiasm and the ability to teach effectively across a range of subject areas, and acrosss all age groups. You will have a flexible approach and will be able to meet the changing needs of our young people.
With the support of colleagues, you will develop the skills, confidence and experience to deal with the challenging behaviour that some of our students can, at times, exhibit. This role may involve some personal care and you must be a driver with at least 2 years driving experience. Enthusiasm, willingness to learn and emotional resilience are essential attributes. As Class Teacher, you will direct and mentor classroom support staff.
