TreeHouse School is a happy and vibrant community where children and young people with autism learn, thrive and achieve. We have over 80 pupils on roll, ranging from 4 – 19 years of age. All pupils in the school have a diagnosis of autism and have TreeHouse School named in their Statement or EHC plan. The school was inspected by Ofsted in November 2017 and was found to be outstanding in all areas, TreeHouse School were also the first ABA School in the country to secure that grade back in October 2012.
Our approach is based on our values. It is person centred and uses behavioural principles to help individuals to achieve their full potential. The focus is on the learning needs of each individual. Every person is unique and has a unique experience of the world. We work closely with the child or young person and their family and carers to identify the things that are important to them and use these aspirations to plan an appropriate learning programme that includes the National Curriculum. It is this personalised and collaborative approach which enables us to provide the highest quality teaching, learning and support.
We are seeking an outstanding and inspirational qualified teacher, ideally with training and experience in EYFS/Primary and/or KS3, to join our Lower School teaching team.
We are looking to recruit an outstanding teacher who has high expectations of our pupils’ learning and a commitment to providing education that promotes excellent progress and improves life chances, ‘making the ordinary possible’ and one that consistently models excellent practice to colleagues in planning and delivery of teaching and learning. This is initially a fixed-term opportunity, with the potential to go permanent.
As well as experience of using a range of assessments to monitor pupil progress and of using data to inform planning, target setting and reporting, we are looking for an individual that also has experience of teaching children with SEN in a special setting and ideally experience of teaching children with autism.
The ideal candidate will be interested in working as part of a multidisciplinary team that includes Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Behaviour Analysts and specialist teachers and will have a sound understanding of, and commitment to, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
