Teacher of SEND

Moor End AcademyKirklees

At Moor End Academy we passionately believe that, as educators, we have the power and responsibility to inspire our students to be the very best they can be. We are ambitious and have high aspirations for every student. Our Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) provision embodies MEA’s core values of respect, ambition and responsibility. Every student receives a high quality learning experience, personalised, to ensure they succeed.

Moor End Academy is an inclusive community; the SEND Department is key in ensuring that the curriculum is personalised and accessible.  Any barriers are identified and removed ensuring that all students achieve their potential. Moor End follows a graduated approach in order to identify, assess and provide evidence based interventions with clear impact. All staff follow a high quality professional development programme based on current research and practice.  Whole staff, departmental and personal development regularly focuses on special educational needs and disability. The curriculum at MEA is carefully designed to provide every student with a broad, balanced, rich and inclusive curriculum experience, where each student is challenged academically and prepared with the knowledge, skills and understanding relevant for adult life and employment.

We employ a team of support staff who work with students both in and out of the classroom. Each year group has a dedicated Educational Teaching Assistant (ETA). They predominantly work with students who have Education Health and Care Plans, supporting their access to the curriculum as part of high quality teaching. Moor End also has a number of specialist Teaching Assistants providing specialist support within their areas of expertise, including; English as an Additional Language (EAL), Maths, Social, Emotional and Mental Health and behaviour modification. Our Senior ETA is responsible for the organisation and daily operations of the Learning Centre, our base for students with SEND. We work closely with the Pastoral and Safeguarding Teams to ensure that student needs are supported holistically and we are all working towards the same outcomes. The SEND Team also has a dedicated Administrator supporting all systems and processes.

If you want to be part of this journey to outstanding and you feel that you would like to be a part of our team, then we would like to hear from you.
