Larwood School - Part of Larwood Academy Trust
Are you looking for a new and different challenge in 2017?
Class Teacher, Key Stage 1/2 required + SEN allowance from April 2017, or sooner if possible?
Are you somebody who can achieve, believe, expect and enjoy?
Larwood School wishes to appoint a dynamic, passionate, dedicated and determined classroom teacher for April 2017 or sooner if possible? We are a school for children with social, emotional and mental health related needs. All of our pupils have Education Health Care plans, but thrive in our nurturing and well structured environment. You will need to be resilient and ready for the challenges that we face with our pupils. However, you can be assured that your work will transform lives!
We were judged as ‘good’ by Ofsted in all areas during inspection in January 2014 for day pupils, and Outstanding in all areas of our residential inspection in Dec 2015. We became an academy school in Nov 2016 and are the lead school in what will be a developing multi academy trust. Our constant challenge is to review and alter our practice to ensure the very best outcomes for our pupils. This post is being created due to additional numbers of pupils and the need to open up a new classroom.
Class sizes are small, and usually no more than 10 pupils. We are superbly resourced. All teaching groups have a teacher and teaching assistant to work with pupils.
There are a number of staff incentive programs that recognise and support our dedicated staff working for our academy. This includes varied CPD opportunities, staff well being scheme and support for Masters degree study, excellent ICT provision, Perkbox membership and staff medical support via the Schools Advisory Service group.
If you are up for the challenge of improving pupil progress whilst maintaining wellbeing, we would love to hear from you. If you have experience of special needs and working with pupils like ours, this would be a distinct advantage, but training is also available and your experience in mainstream would be equally valid.
For more information please contact Mr. S. Trimble, Headteacher.
Visits to the school are welcome. Please contact Mrs Jane Kimpton, Deputy Headteacher.
Larwood School is committed to safeguarding the welfare of its students and all staff are carefully vetted.
