School-Led Resourced Provision Leader (ASD)
plus TLR2c (£7,017)
Join a leading school which prides itself on the high quality of education, enrichment and care provided to all and is committed to the wellbeing of students and staff.
An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a well-qualified and inspirational teaching colleague who has experience of working within a special school or experience of leading SEND to lead our 12 place School-Led Resourced Provision for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This is an exciting opportunity for a colleague who shares our commitment to high standards of professionalism and achievement for every one of our students and who will go the extra mile to help them achieve excellence whilst progressing your career in a school judged by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’.
We are a fantastic learning community, set in one of Yorkshire’s most scenic areas, whose facilities have recently been enhanced by the completion of a multi-million-pound refurbishment and expansion project. Our Ofsted inspection of March 2017 confirmed us as an ‘Outstanding’ school in all areas, where students “attain highly and make excellent progress”, where behaviour is “exemplary” and where “teachers go the extra mile to make sure students achieve, feel cared for and thrive within a supportive and productive learning environment”. Since Ofsted’s highly positive endorsement, the school has continued to go from strength to strength with progress in 2019 well above average and in the top 10% of all schools nationally.
If you have the ability to engage and enthuse some of our most vulnerable students coupled with the drive and expertise to grow our SPR provision over the next two to three years then we would like to hear from you.
