We are looking to appoint a dynamic, inspirational and innovative SEN teacher, who has a real passion for ensuring engagement in learning for all students, to join our ambitious and well-resourced department from September 2019.

The subject content of these classes can be adapted to meet the subject specialism of the right candidate, but will include a focus on English and aspects of the Humanities, Science and Arts curricula. 

You will contribute to raising standards of student attainment and to facilitate and encourage a learning experience which provides students with the opportunity to achieve their full potential, within an inclusive and supportive environment, and to monitor and support the overall progress and development of students within the curriculum area.
