Willow Dene is a forward thinking and innovative school that is committed to providing an outstanding education for children with a wide range of learning needs. We have been awarded NAS accreditation and are a MOVE centre of excellence. We have designed and implemented our own ground breaking personalised assessment system. Willow Dene is part of a unique and exciting seven school federation, enabling us to forge meaningful mainstream links that benefit both children and staff. Willow Dene became a school for children aged 2 –16 in September 2015.
Willow Dene is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils attending the school. As the duties of these posts involve regular contact with children, any offer to the successful candidates will be conditional upon an Enhanced Disclosure being obtained via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
We have recently had a successful Ofsted inspection. The report recognised that ‘all staff are determined to give every child who comes through the school’s doors the best possible start in life’ and ‘leaders have successfully created a culture where staff feel valued and supported’.
We are looking for dynamic, passionate and enthusiastic practitioners, who are willing to learn and want to achieve the very highest standards of teaching and learning. We want someone who is able to see the possibilities for our exceptional learners and develop provision that enables all to thrive. Application forms from newly qualified teachers will be welcomed.
You will be joining a friendly, enthusiastic and well qualified staff team and will find this post challenging, stimulating and rewarding. In-service training and an induction programme will be provided by the school.
During the current situation we are not encouraging any visits to view the school however, we would warmly welcome telephone calls or a video meet with anyone who is thinking about applying to answer any questions or provide further information.
